Advanced technologies are considered including the solving of the global problem of using U-238 in the irradiation reaction by fast neutrons for producing Pu-239 as a fuel for APS and mini-APS. In this case, the nuclear power plants will work as a multiplier when new fuel is more than it was loaded initially. Such a scientific progress is capable of providing the country with available and cheap electric power for several years ahead at a U-235 deficiency and falling the oil prices.
KEYWORDS: global tendencies of technological development, sustainable development, atomic power station, mini-APS, fuel for APS, 235U, 238U.
