LUT University is developing a small nuclear power plant for district heating

LUT University is researching an entirely new solution to address the problem of carbon dioxide emissions due to heating. The university is developing a small nuclear power plant that will provide district heating. The minimum output of the district heat reactor must be 20–30 megawatts, and a few such units could satisfy the district heating needs of a medium-sized town.
