Enthusiasts of the solution point out that HTR reactors could be Poland's ticket to the forefront of the nuclear industry. – Thanks to this work, Poland has already become number one in Europe in the field of development of fourth-generation reactors, – says Józef Sobolevski, representative director of the National Center for Nuclear Research for this technology, quoted by “DGP”.

Government analyzes obtained by the newspaper indicate this Most similar projects involve high costs and delays in implementation. Due to technical problems, the HTR was operated in Japan for only 50 days from the time of its construction.

The presentations and reports envisage the construction of the first such experimental unit in Swierc near Warsaw within a few years. Within a dozen years or so – the technology was commercialized. High-temperature reactors should be the basis for the development of emission-free combined heat and power plants and heating plants, answering, among other things, to meet the needs of the chemical or fuel industries, as they will replace sources based on fossil fuels. In the future, they could also be used to produce hydrogen – DGP wrote.

However, the work carried out to date has not resulted in a technical design. As we read, “This requires further support and another three years of work.”
