    Rosatom will invest 5 billion rubles in the battery recycling complex. 

    Rusatom Greenway (part of the Rosatom State Corporation) will allocate more than 5 billion rubles to create a complex for processing electric vehicle batteries.

    The company reported that the production and technical complex "Center" for processing lithium-ion batteries of electric transport, railway transport, mobile devices and uninterruptible power supplies is planned to be built in Dzerzhinsk, Nizhny Novgorod region.

    It is assumed that the complex will include five automatic lines for sorting and processing each type of battery. During the processing, secondary resources will be extracted - aluminum, copper, magnetic fraction, lithium-containing concentrates, etc. The enterprise will be equipped with air and wastewater treatment technologies, automated environmental monitoring systems and a multi-level monitoring system.

    The decision to start construction will be made after passing state examinations and public discussion.

    That is very good... there is no point in going all lithium ion battery if they just get dumped in a field after 5 years or 10 years...

    I would have thought such processing facilities would be a mandatory thing before switching to electric vehicles.

    Russian supercomputers will be combined into a single network. 

    Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), Interdepartmental Supercomputing Center (ISC) The Russian Academy of Sciences and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) on Friday signed an agreement on combining supercomputers into a single network, RIA Novosti correspondent reports.

    "The President instructed us to expand the territorial availability and bandwidth of the National Research Computer Network of Russia. And this agreement is an important step in solving the task" – said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, who attended the signing ceremony.

    According to him, now National Research Computer Network provides services to more than 150 organizations of higher education and science located in 34 regions. "This year it is planned to connect 40% of the total number of leading organizations and all 10 supercomputer centers of the country to it. By 2024, absolutely all scientific and educational organizations of higher education will be connected to the system" – he added.

    According to the Rector of SPbPU Andrey Rudsky, the expansion of high-performance computing capabilities "means reaching a new level of research capabilities, a new scale of knowledge-intensive multidisciplinary projects."

    According to the materials of the City Committee for Science and Higher Education, the agreement provides for the integration of high-performance computing resources into an integrated network of supercomputer centers, as well as the creation of an ecosystem of a professional user community by organizing collaborative research at universities, laboratories, research institutes, as well as at industrial enterprises.

    As a result, world-class research centers, scientific, educational and engineering centers get the opportunity to work with big data in distributed scientific installations of the megascience class in supercomputer centers. Researchers and developers will be provided with global access to machine learning services, as well as big data analytics.

    That is a very good article and good analyses.

    I hope this big project is implemented, one of the biggest issues that Russia has now, is population growth, if this issue is solved, the big project can a be a huge success.

    Russia’s defence minister pushes Siberian mega-plan

    The Russian defence minister wants to build several mega-cities and connect the vast region to the Arctic.

    The grand Soviet-style initiative has over the past months been actively lobbied by Shoigu, and the loyal ally of Vladimir Putin has now reportedly gained solid support from the Kremlin.

    According to the powerful national security leader, up to five new major cities should be built in Siberia, each with a population of up to one million.

    They will be the centres in new industrial clusters that include state-of the-art facilities for natural resource extraction and processing, as well as research and infrastructure.

    It would be interesting to the locations where they plan to build these five big cities.

    Chances are, they will be revitalizing existing cities and maybe some towns to bring them up to a new standard. Would be far cheaper.

    Actually on reflection, I think if they are going to build some cities from scratch in the arctic then it makes more sense to actually build them from scratch.

    Most of the problems with most modern cities is that they started out as tiny towns never designed to be cities so the streets are too narrow and the sewerage and water and power supply systems have to be overhauled and upgraded every few years to cope with ever increasing numbers of people.

    The Chinese have built custom designed cities that include 8 lane roads, with expected population size and traffic loads already calculated and catered for in the design.

    Building a city from scratch means you can start with a decent and efficient underground service with all the necessary infrastructure already built for expected capacities and usage.

    It means fewer problems and fewer growing pains and would make it a much better place to live and operate because everything is properly designed.

    You could build places to live closer to places to work so transit times are reduced and the traffic is reduced, where city centre transport is efficient so you could get a train or bus or subway to the centre of the city and then a bus or even scooter to where you need to get to...

    A new aluminum foundry was opened in Siberia. It uses the most up to date technology. It has a closed water cycle, very low
    CO2 emissions and high efficiency. The project started in 2007 but was put on ice thanks to the 2008 financial crisis and low
    aluminum prices. The implementation was upgraded with more advanced tech that has matured since 2007.

    Kursk nuclear power plant unit-1 disconnected from the grid for the very last time and is now permanently shutdown. It supplied for the last 45 years the Central Black Earth Region with electrcity and heat for the residents of Kurchatov city. The unit was equipped with a RBMK-1000 reactor and shut down because the design reached it's end of life.
    From 2023 on, the unit will be replaced by a new nuclear reactor, Kursk II-1, which is currently under construction, using Russia's state of the art design VVER-TOI. Construction progress is still ahead of schedule.

    ROSENERGOATOM announced the start of preparation of the construction site of Leningrad II unit-3. Currently, clearing of the forest at the site for the two additional units Leningrad II-3 (unit 7) and Leningrad II-4 (unit 8 ) is underway and excavation of the construction pit will start in spring 2022. The unit is slated for operation in 2030. Unit 7 and 8 at the site will be equipped with two VVER-1200 reactors and will replace the aging RBMK-1000 units 3 and 4 of the old Leningrad nuclear power plant. The operating license of those units will be expire in 2024 and 2026.
    Leningrad NPP is currently the largest nuclear power plant in Russia with a installed capacity of around 4400 MW and the largest energy provider in the northwest of Russia.

    UK-based mining company Eurasian Mining Plc teams up with Russia's Rosgeo to open new mining sites on the Kola peninsula. It is planned to produce nickel, cobalt, and copper for batteries, and also platinum group metals. A processing plant with an annual capacity of 1.7 million tons is in planning.

    https://www.world-nuclear-news.org/Articles/Rosatom-and-Yakutia-planning-for-SHELF-M-small-nuc

    Rosatom and Yakutia planning for SHELF-M small nuclear plant

    17 June 2022
    Russian nuclear power company Rosatom's director general Alexey Likhachev and the head of the Republic of Sakha (also known as Yakutia) Aysen Nicolayev have signed an agreement "on intentions and a procedure for organising cooperation for promoting projects involving a small nuclear power plant based on the SHELF-M reactor".

    The agreement will see the two sides develop and approve a roadmap for the implementation of the project this year - the scheduled commissioing of a pilot nuclear power plant, with an installed electricity capacity of up to 10 MW, based on the SHELF-M integral PWR reactor, is 2030.

    The project is within the framework of the federal programme Development of Equipment, Technologies and Scientific Research in the Field of Nuclear Energy Use in the Russian Federation for the Period up to 2024.

    The idea of the micro nuclear power plant is to enable the provision of a reliable source of electricity to remote communities and industries where there is little existing energy or transport infrastructure.

    Yakutia, which is in the east of Russia, is already due to get a Rosatom-designed small nuclear power plant based on the RITM-200 reactor which is intended to ensure a stable and clean power supply for the development of the Kyuchus gold deposit. Its commissioning is scheduled for 2028.

    I have heard claims from brOSINT the SHELF-M is going to be used as the power source for a deep sea sonar network all around the Arctic.

    Interesting that they call it a micro nuclear reactor... if it is relatively small and fully self contained then it might be useful as a backup power supply on a ship or sub.... especially one with electric motor propulsion.

    Precisely! That means even the Russian Navy is now taking the concept of large UUVs seriously. Isn't it?

    If you read the first post in this thread... no.

    It talks about frigate sized unmanned vessels... not much smaller unmanned subs.

    Wow this didn't age well... I suspect this mining agreement is ended... along with SWIFT.... for Russia.

    Interesting... so if the drawings and dimensions are accurate then it is probably about 4-6m wide and about 10-12 metres long... it is smaller than most AIP systems in conventional submarines and for a sub like a Lada class, and in terms of power... 10 MW... according to Wiki the Lada has a 2kW propulsion system, so 10 MW or 10,000 kW would be plenty of power to run a sub... probably way too much even... a further scaled down NPP would be interesting as a system to charge batteries on a conventional sub, but then I guess it would stop being a conventional sub... imagine underwater charging stations for SSK that could come in and plug in to charge up in a few hours and then continue operations purely on batteries... perhaps even an SSN that operates like an inflight refuelling plane that is relatively small and all it does is sail around friendly waters topping up the batteries of SSKs with requiring to surface or run diesel engines...

    For tiny pacific islands it would be a relatively clean and efficient and reliable source of electricity... much cleaner than burning gas or oil or coal, and more reliable than wind and solar...

    GarryB, a project for the construction of a small nuclear power plant based on the RITM-200 reactor in Yakutia is already being implemented.
    The deadline for readiness is set for 2028.
