Engie SA (ENGI.FR) said Friday that it has signed a new agreement with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, or CEA, to continue their research and development collaboration in nuclear energy.

The agreement is for two years and extends the partnership between the two entities, which started in 2007.

Both organizations commit to improve the performance and safety of reactors, clean up nuclear facilities and develop knowledge about materials, equipment and components, among other things.

"In 2018, the work will consist in finalizing studies on molecules used to improve the flexibility of operating the coolant circuits of reactors and developing new technologies for conditioning waste," the company said.

The CEA is a research, development and innovation player working in defense and security, nuclear and renewable energies, technological research for industry, as well as fundamental research, Engie said.
