Speech Title: Title of the Presentation: Environmental friendly supply chains under carbon cap scheme
Abstract: Due to increasing environmental concerns and stricter legislations, we take a fresh look at the impact of logistics on the environment. The study investigates the trade-off between transportation cost and carbon emission in freight consolidation and containerization problem. We determine the types and quantities of containers and trucks that will result in an environmental friendly supply chain, and then apply the model in a real-world business case. The objective of the talk is to investigate how carbon cap scheme can sustain environment. We will discuss the background and motivation and the problem we are facing due to increasing environment issues, such as carbon emissions and climate change. Then research problem and scopes will be developed in a framework. Literature review will be done to survey the current research regarding sustainable supply chains under carbon cap scheme. Conclusion remarks and managerial insights will be provided at the end.
Prof. Alexander Vasiliev
Nuclear Safety Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBRAE), Russia
Biography: I was born in 1962. In 1985 I finished Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 1988 I finished post-graduate courses attached to I. V. Kurchatov Atomic Energy Institute, Moscow. I defended my thesis in 1989. Since 1989 I worked at Nuclear Safety Institute, Moscow. Also, I teach students at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. My areas of interest include the safety of nuclear power plants (NPPs) especially NPPs with Russian type water-water energetic reactors (VVERs), analytical and numerical modeling of physical and chemical phenomena during NPPs accidents including fuel cladding oxidation, propagaion of impurities in geological media in the vicinity of radioactive waste burial places. I have about 100 scientific publications.
Speech Title: Application of New Perspective Materials as Advanced Tolerant Fuel Cladding Materials in Nuclear Reactors of Future Generation
Abstract: Currently, the comprehension among the specialists and functionaries throughout the world is getting stronger that the nuclear industry can encounter serious difficulties in development in the case of insufficiently decisive measures to enhance the safety level of nuclear objects and to ensure clean energy and green world. The keen competition with renewable energy sources like wind, solar or geothermal energy takes place presently and is expected to continue in future decades. One of main measures of nuclear safety enhancement could be a drastic renovation of materials used in nuclear industry.
The analytical models of high-temperature oxidation of new perspective materials including chromium-nickel-based alloys, zirconium-based cladding with protective chromium coating, FeCrAl alloys and composite claddings on the basis of SiC/SiC in the course of design-basis and beyond-design-basis accidents at nuclear power plants (NPPs) are developed and implemented to severe accident computer running code. The comparison with available experimental data is conducted.
The preliminary calculation data of loss-of-coolant accidents at perspective nuclear pressurized water reactors with new types of claddings as well as new experimental data obtained both in Russia and in the world demonstrate encouraging results for hydrogen generation rate and integral hydrogen production. It looks optimistic for considerable upgrade of safety level for future generation NPPs using new fuel and cladding materials.
The best ATF cladding candidates and current ATF experiments throughout the world will be discussed in the presentation.
Keywords: Nuclear power plant (NPP), accident-tolerant fuel, cladding corrosion and oxidation, hydrogen release, enhanced level of NPP safety.
