Interest is growing to establish an affiliate of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy in Argentina. Radioisotopes are used in nuclear medicine and many other fields now in Argentina. Argentina has three nuclear reactors generating about one-tenth of its electricity. Its first commercial nuclear power reactor began operating in 1974. Construction has started on a small locally-designed power reactor prototype, CAREM-25. The next two reactors planned are likely to be built by China National Nuclear Corporation.

Bruno Comby, President of EFN - International is working with Federico Bernal at Observatorio de la Energia, Technologia e Infraestructura para el Desarrollo, OETEC to establish EFN-Argentina.
Brendan McNamara, President, EFN-UK - Presenting facts is not an effective way to change opinions, especially if the terminology is specialised. Even so, facts are the real basis of technology and should be accessible. Debate between folks with inflexible positions is the unrewarding stuff of politics. We hope this fully engaged website and a layered set of primers and highly pictorial presentations will at least increase general interest.
The Benefits of Nuclear Energy (Bruno Comby, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy) France18.Apr.2015
Bruno Comby -Ecological organizations such as Greenpeace have an anti-nuclear standpoint. But it’s more ideological than fact-based, and an increasing number of environmentalists are now turning in favor of nuclear energy because there are, in fact–as we will see below–very good, solid, scientific and, above all, environmental reasons to be in favor of the many benefits of nuclear energy.
Patrick Moore, Co-Founder of Greenpeace in the 1970s later became a strong advocate for peaceful uses of nuclear energy. This is his Preface for Bruno Comby's book, "Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy." Bruno is Founder President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy - International, 1996. Today, EFN is a global organization with affiliate organizations in many countries.
