The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) in Daejeon, South Korea was established in 1959 as the sole professional research-oriented institute for nuclear power in South Korea, and has rapidly built a reputation for research and development in various fields. In 1995 KAERI designed and constructed the nations first multipurpose research reactor, HANARO based on the Canadian MAPLE design. KAERI is dedicated to finding a wide range of uses for atomic energy. As examples, KAERI developed the worlds first radiopharmaceutical "Milican injection" for treating liver cancer. KAERI has made significant contributions to the nations nuclear technology development. After Korea achieved self-reliance in nuclear core technologies, KAERI have transferred highly developed technologies to local industries for practical applications. The Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety (KINS), responsible for supporting the government in regulatory and licensing works, and the Nuclear Environment Technology Institute, responsible for low and medium level radioactive waste management, are also originally spin-offs from KAERI. KAERI established the present KEPCO E&C (full name: KEPCO Engineering & Construction Company, INC., formerly: KOPEC), responsible for not only the architect engineering works of nuclear power plants, but also for designing nuclear steam supply systems. KAERI also established the present Korea Nuclear Fuel Co., Ltd. (KNFC), responsible for designing and manufacturing PWR as well as PHWR fuels. KAERI has produced landmark achievements during its 50-year history of nuclear energy development. Such achievements include the self-reliance of the NSSS system design of Korean Standard Nuclear Power Plants, the localization of both CANDU and PWR fuels, the indigenous design of the HANARO research reactor, and the nationâs first ever export of a nuclear energy system to Jordan. KAERI will not be complacent regarding its achievements thus far, and will instead move toward the future. In line with the Long-term Development Plan for the Future Nuclear Energy Systems, which has been implemented as a national policy, KAERI is concentrating all of its effort on the development of spent fuel technology for reutilization purposes and on future nuclear energy systems that feature significant advancements in safety, economics, and proliferation resistance. KAERI is indebted to the public for its support over the past 50 years, which has enabled the Institute to develop to its current status. All of the staff members at KAERI vow to pay our debt to our nationâs people by producing world-leading nuclear R&D outcomes, and to concentrate our efforts toward maximizing our research capabilities. KAERI will spearhead efforts to help Korea achieve its national agenda of sustainable development and low carbon, green growth by ceasing the environmental degradation and resource depletion that face us in the 21st century.
