Curbing global warming to avoid climate crisis has become a major challenge for mankind today. Nuclear power with its low carbon nature should and will play a significant role in realizing a carbon-neutral world in 2050. Operating the current nuclear fleet safely and economically, green decommissioning of aging nuclear power stations as well as creating innovative designs of the next generation reactors, especially the small modular reactors, will be the focus points for our discussions. These constitute the main theme of “Sustainable Development of Nuclear Power” for NUTHOS-13 to be held in September 5-10, 2022 at Hsinchu, Taiwan.
Taiwan is well known as Formosa—the beautiful island—and a “butterfly kingdom”. With the favorable latitude and landscape rising from sea level to mountain tops of about 3000- 4000 m, Taiwan is home to more than 430 species of butterflies. Join us to watch the flapping of these colorful butterflies in beautiful Taiwan, brainstorm the development of nuclear power for the sustainable era, and create the butterfly effect that will benefit our society.
