In this sense, the international organization «supports and facilitates the development of new and emerging applications of nuclear technologies through cogeneration and heat applications, including seawater desalination.»
Besides, it highlights that “it enables the exchange of information on the various non-electrical applications; it publishes technical and economic documents, collaborates with the Member States within the framework of coordinated research programs and organizes technical meetings on the matter”.
Additionally, it has established a series of computer documents to «provide information to the decision-making authorities of the Member States on the feasibility of non-electric applications that use nuclear energy.»
