Environmental regulator gives nod to plans for first Polish nuclear plant
Poland’s General Directorate for Environmental Protection (GDOŚ) has given its imprimatur to the Central European nation’s plan to build and operate its first nuclear power facility, state-owned utility Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe announced last Friday.
PEJ, which submitted its environmental impact report for the proposed project to GDOŚ in March 2022, called the decision “a key permit obtained in the investment process, because subsequent administrative approvals, including the decision to determine the location of the investment and the building permit, must comply with the arrangements and conditions contained in the decision on environmental conditions.”

Recent plasma-material-interaction (PMI) studies of relevance to fusion PMI science are discussed. The results are a mix of science experiments and in situ diagnostic technology development. Scientific issues addressed include the nature of He and W atom migration in the evolution of W fuzz surfaces, understanding the nature of D retention in damaged W surfaces via modeling with the tritium migration and analysis program, and an examination of synergistic effects associated with D trapping on composite Be codeposit and W substrate surfaces. In situ diagnostic developments discussed include laser-induced desorption spectroscopy for the measurement of bulk hydrogen retention and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for the measurement of near-surface composition.
