China to leapfrog America in nuclear developments-Kachan Co.

Post by rihoughton » Nov 22, 2011 2:18 pm

Article from Kachan and Company 11/21/2011 Of particular interest is the statement," Leading developers of advanced nuclear technologies are lining up to trial their systems in China, which is investing more in nuclear innovation than any other country. Regulatory and political hurdles and powerful lobbies in the U.S., by contrast, are expected to hinder the adoption of new, safer and more efficient nuclear breakthroughs."

Anyone have an idea of which companies are pursuing future trials in China?

China has 4 times the population of the US and is also the manufacturing hub of the world. They already burn half the coal produced in the world.
Nuclear energy is the next scalable source of power in the world. They are building the maximum no of reactors in the world. Sometimes the pride comes through.

It appears that the largest companies are NOT necessarily created directly by the Chinese government -- at least not in the case of the arms industry, according to this report :
As one expert recently noted, “Most remaining proliferation disputes don’t pertain to the actions of the government in Beijing, but to the practices of China’s state-owned defense industries. The country’s large state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are some of the world’s most prolific exporters of weapons and dual-use technologies.” These SOEs are dominated by the so-called Princelings, sons, daughters and grandchildren of high-ranking officials who founded and ran the Chinese Communist Party with Mao.
In a private briefing in Hong Kong, a Chinese arms dealer described the relationship between the Chinese Communist elite and Beijing’s arms-smuggling trade. According to him, this lucrative business was carefully divided so that each family received a share of the profits depending on where they are in the Communist Party pecking order. His account immediately brought to mind the mafia families in “The Godfather” movie dividing up the New York crime scene.
In discussing the most important arms exporting firm in Beijing, “Polytechnologies Inc.,” the gunrunner noted that the company’s officers were in the same hierarchical relationship with one another as their sponsors (fathers, fathers-in-law, and the like) were within the Communist Party. He explained that this implied a deliberate division of the arms-smuggling pie based on Party rank order. At the time of the briefing, Polytechnologies was headed up by none other than the son-in-law of Deng Xiaoping, the former leader of China.
According to an earlier post,
Kirk Sorensen wrote:This is Dr. Jiang Mianheng, who I understand is leading the Chinese thorium MSR project in the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Jiang is a graduate of Drexel University with a PhD in electrical engineering. His father is Jiang Zemin, former president of the People's Republic of China from 1993 to 2003.
.....where the link to the wikipedia page on Dr. Jiang Mianheng notes,
In 2007, he failed to win his nomination as a delegate to the 17th Party Congress. Reuters indicated that this was a sign that the Shanghai Clique under the auspices of his father had lost its power.
