China National Nuclear Corp, one of the country's largest nuclear companies, introduced the low-temperature heating reactor DHR-400 for residential heat generation, replacing coal-fired boilers as China aims to reduce coal consumption to curb pollution, the company said Tuesday.

The reactor, which has a service life of 60 years, can be applied either in the inland or coastal areas to provide cheap and sustainable electricity compared with other traditional fuels including coal and natural gas.

According to the company, a 400-megawatt heating reactor can provide heat for an area of 20 million square meters.
