London • The British government on Thursday approved the construction of the country’s first new nuclear power plant in more than two decades, a French and Chinese-backed project that had prompted high-level fears about national security. The government said in a statement that it had decided to proceed with the 18 billion-pound ($23 billion) Hinkley Point plant in southwest England, but that future foreign-funded infrastructure projects will be subject to tighter rules. The plant will be financ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

China sets sights on new export: nuclear energy 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Beijing • On a seaside field south of Shanghai, workers are constructing a nuclear reactor that is the flagship for Beijing’s ambition to compete with the United States, France and Russia as an exporter of atomic power technology. The Hualong One, developed by two state-owned companies, is one multibillion-dollar facet of the Communist Party’s aspirations to transform China into a creator of profitable technology from mobile phones to genetics. Still, experts say Beijing underestimates how tough... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Editorial: Green River nuclear plant is looking like a tough sell 13.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Environmentalists this week dropped their legal battle to kill a nuclear power plant in southeastern Utah. They didn’t change their minds about the plant. They just think it will die without their help, and it’s hard to disagree. It was always a long shot when Blue Castle Holdings announced with some fanfare years ago that it had a plan for a fission plant near the Green River in Emery County. The plant would need a lot of water from the river for cooling, so Blue Castle negotiated to buy wate... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

China's nuclear ambitions entering troubled waters 1.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Beijing • China’s ambitions to become a pioneer in nuclear energy are sailing into troubled waters. Two state-owned companies plan to develop floating nuclear reactors, a technology engineers have been considering since the 1970s for use by oil rigs or island communities. Beijing is racing Russia, which started developing its own in 2007, to get a unit into commercial operation. In China’s case, the achievement would be tempered by concern its reactors might be sent into harm’s way to support oi...

BLM set to approve expansion of inactive uranium mine in Utah 30.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The White Canyon mining district yielded thousands of tons of uranium ore during the Cold War, but the area west of Blanding has gone silent in recent years thanks to collapsing interest in nuclear power. But one company remains bullish on Utah’s uranium deposits and hopes to greatly expand its idled operations at a San Juan County mine that happens to be in the heart of the proposed Bears Ears National Monument.

French energy company OKs risky nuclear plant 29.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Paris • French energy company EDF Thursday gave the green light to a major nuclear power plant project in southwest England that some consider too costly, including one board member who announced his resignation. As the company’s board met throughout the day, unions argued that the 24-billion-euro ($27 billion) cost of the Hinkley Point project could put the company at risk. They even took legal action to try to delay the project. Environmental activists oppose the project at a time when some co... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The Green River may soon be the home of a nuclear power plant following a court ruling upholding a Utah energy company’s proposal. The Utah Court of Appeals affirmed Thursday an earlier court ruling allowing Blue Castle Holdings’ plan for a nuclear site in Emery County to continue.
