Energy: Project ITER

FUSION ENERGY- PROJECT ITER -

The ITER project is a scientific energy project that aims to use fusion as an alternative energy, by creating the world's largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device, whichwill enable the commercial use and mass-production offusion electricity.

Location:

JapanRussiaIndiaEuropean UnionUnited StatesKoreaChina

ITER Members

1. Produce 500 megawatts of fusion power2. Demonstrate the integrated operation of technologies for a fusion power plant3. Achieve a deuterium-tritium plasma in which the reaction is sustained throughinternal heating4. Test tritium breeding5. Demonstrate the safety characteristics of afusion device

Main Goals:

What is the ITER project?

The ITER project is particularly funded by components, systems, supplies and buildings. However, in terms of contruction costs in percentage:European Nation - 45.6%Japan, Russia, India, Korea, Japan - 9.1%

The ITER facility is currently still beingbuilt on a 42-hectare site in southernFrance

Costs:

Safety Issues:

- Handling and management of foreign or other materials or substances such as tritium or deuterium- Drilling safety protocols into all personnel to ensure minimum risk of injury- Emergency cases: the sudden or unexpected failure of equipment, contamination of subjects, etc.
