Global CO2 intensity reduction accelerate in 2016 (-3.1%) compared to the past trends (-1.4% on average over 1990-2015)

On a more longer term trend, CO2 intensity has fallen in all regions since 1990 except in Middle East.
In the OECD countries, CO2 emissions per unit of GDP are 15% below the world average, driven down by the European Union (-2.4%/year since 2000) at a level close to half of that of 1990.
The United States posted a noticeable fall of 45% between 1990 and 2016.
CIS countries have recorded a similar drop (45%) since 1990 but the CIS region remains, by far, that with the highest CO2 intensity.
High intensities are recorded in fossil-fuel rich and developing countries.
In 2016, significant drops have been recorded in China, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Kazakhstan will supply uranium to new Chinese nuclear plants starting from 2019

Kazakhstan's Ministry of Energy announced that it will begin to supply uranium to five Chinese nuclear plants starting from 2019 onwards. The facilities are currently under construction and will be supplied with uranium fuel from Kazakhstan. The country is a key uranium producer, with around 40% of the worldwide production and 12% of the uranium reserves, ahead of Canada and Australia. The state-run company KazAtomProm has reduced the level of its uranium production by 10% for 2017 due to a 47% drop in world uranium prices at the beginning of the year.
