This article presents information related to technological innovations in different parts of the world. China could develop the world's first commercially operated 'pebble bed' nuclear reactor. A site has been chosen in the province of Shangdong to build a 195MW gas-cooled power plant. David King, the British chief scientist, has called on petroleum firms to use carbon sequestration to help combat global warming. Speaking at a conference in Exeter, King said some North Sea oil wells should use captured carbon dioxide for enhanced oil recovery.
