China is looking to fuel its nuclear power industry with largely self-developed technology by 2020 as it gradually reduces its reliance on imported technology, according to Ouyang Yu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The country has been advocating greater use of nuclear energy as part of its efforts to reduce global warming gases emitted by burning fossil fuels, state media reported. China's first self-developed pressurized water reactor is expected to be put to use by 2017. The objectives will be achieved based on the digestion and development of the latest technology acquired through the purchase of four nuclear reactors and technological transfer from the Westinghouse Electric Company.
