Russia’s state atomic energy corporation- Rosatom in association with Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute (VINATOM) held a workshop dedicated to environmental safety of nuclear power technologies in Hanoi, Vietnam recently.

At the workshop representatives of leading Rosatom enterprises made reports and shared experience of the Russian corporation in ensuring nuclear and radiation security, both at the Russian nuclear industry facilities and when implementing projects abroad.
“Nuclear energy is green , but at the same time in order to achieve high level of environmental safety there is a need for serious and sustainable work. That makes environmental safety one of the key elements for newcomer countries” commented Egor Simonov, Head of Rosatom in Southeast Asia in his speech.
According to him, in the development of nuclear power programmes it’s important not only to achieve necessary level of environmental safety of nuclear power, but also succeed in its public awareness.
This aspect was discussed separately during one of the sessions at the workshop, where ROSATOM shared its best practices in the area of nuclear energy public acceptance in Russia and other countries of the company’s operations.
