Nuclear energy - Our energy - 4 views

  • In the last three decades nuclear energy has significant part in electrical energy production. Momentarily with the help of the nuclear energy, 16% of total world's electrical energy production is generated.
  • Since nuclear power plants are not producing the carbon dioxide, its use isn't increasing greenhouse effect.
  • Real problem concerning the nuclear power plants is remain of the used fuel which is high-radioactive waste and must be stored in special pools (water freezes nuclear fuels acting as radiation shield) or in dry containers. Older, less radioactive fuel is stored in dry warehouses where is sealed in special containers made of a ferro concrete.

  • Country that has the largest share of its electrical energy manufactured in nuclear power plants is France with 75%. Lithuania follows with 73%, and then Belgium with 58%, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Sweden with 47%, Ukraine with 44%, and Republic of Korea with 43%. Ten countries more have more than 25% of its total electrical energy produced in nuclear power plants. US is producing 19.8% of its electrical energy in nuclear power plants, but because of the high production range they are having the biggest share in the total electrical energy produced in nuclear power plants with 28%. France is second with 18%, and Japan third with 12%.
    Basic information about nuclear energy with few specific figures: environmental influence, the percentage of electricity generated by nuclear power plant, etc.

Uranium Supplies: Supply of Uranium - 2 views

    • Uranium is a relatively common metal, found in rocks and seawater. Economic concentrations of it are not uncommon. 
    • Its availability to supply world energy needs is great both geologically and because of the technology for its use. 
    • Quantities of mineral resources are greater than commonly perceived. 
    • The world's known uranium resources increased 15% in two years to 2007 due to increased mineral exploration. 
    A very helpful and detailed website regarding Uranium.
