Human development has always depended on energy. We need energy all the time. For heat, for light, to cook, for our health. To operate our cars, our buses and our trains. To charge our phones and power our computers… To manufacture all these things, too. The more of us there are on Earth –there will probably be 9 billion of us by 2050 –the more we’ll need energy, of every kind.

Russia is planning to deliver enriched nuclear fuel to Poland's atomic energy institute in Œwierk, near Warsaw, for its Maria test reactor. The fuel will be supplied in the 2002-2003 time frame by TVEL, the state-owned company with the Russian monopoly for nuclear fuel fabrication and exports. The shipments are subject to non-proliferation rules enforced by the Ministry for Atomic Energy of the Russian Federation.
