Enquiry to "ArmAtom" on Invention by "AT Metals" Company


“EcoLur” informational NGO has sent an enquiry to Vahram Petrosyan, Director of "ArmAtom" Armenian Scientific Research Institute for Nuclear Plant Operation, about the invention made by “AT-Metals” mining company. 

“Dear Mr. Vahram Petrosyan

On 17 December 2015 “AT-Metals” mining company, as represented by Company Group Head Hamlet Hovsepyan, made a sensational statement about the new method of preservation and utilization of radioactive wastes developed by their company.  At the same time, they made a reference to the results of the experiments made in the Armenian nuclear power plant and the proposals by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

We would like to ask you, as an institution head, which is the competent body in scientific developments in nuclear energy in Armenia, to confirm the validity of this information, as well as to inform in which stage the developments are at this moment. Whether the information on this research is available or not and what’s the relation of “AT-Metals” Company with such sort of research.”
