Don Erb was Director of Isotope Production and Distribution at the U.S. Department of Energy and held many other positions in the Atomic Energy Commission and the DOE. He initiated the recommendation in the 2010 letter to the Science Advisor to the White House for the U.S. to take an active role in the domestic production of radioisotopes for nuclear medicine. The government claimed it was working on that, but without fast reactors, domestic isotope production has not progressed sufficiently. The government needs to change its policies toward fast reactors and spent fuel reprocessing. His recommendation however did lead to the efforts for global public education on this topic at Go Nuclear, Inc. and Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA. His pioneering efforts along with many other distinguished scientists and engineers led to the tremendous accomplishments in the field of peaceful use of nuclear energy.

Alexander Merten, Lyu Chang - Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corp, is seeking to hit big in China's nuclear industry with the opening of a regional center headquartered in Beijing - April 2016. The company is not only planning to build more new reactors with its long-standing partner China National Nuclear Corp, but is also expected to expand its business into "non-nuclear activities" such as agriculture, organic chemicals and nuclear medicine. What we are able to provide to our clients is a whole package deal from uranium enrichment, nuclear fuel assembly, construction of nuclear power plants to the fuel reprocessing, and I think that is not something that our rivals can provide.

Australian Nuclear Association -Nuclear energy is recognised internationally as an essential component of electricity system that meets global environmental and energy utilisation objectives. With abundant coal, gas and uranium resources and wind and solar potential, Australia is uniquely placed to set standards for integrated, environmentally sustainable energy utilisation. To be credible, Australia must embrace the domestic use and not just export of uranium to generate base load electricity.
