about

Sustainable Nuclear Power provides non-nuclear engineers, scientists and energy planners with the necessary information to understand and utilize the major advances in the field. The book demonstrates that nuclear fission technology has the abundance and attainability to provide centuries of safe power with minimal greenhouse gas generation. It also addresses the safety and disposal issues that have plagued the development of the nuclear power industry and scared planners and policy makers as well as the general public for more than two decades.

  • No need for a background in nuclear science! This book guides engineers, scientists and energy professionals through a concise and easy-to-understand overview of key safety and sustainability issues affecting their work.
  • Details the very latest information about today's safest and most energy-efficient reactor designs and reprocessing procedures.
  • Brings to light the fears and hesitation of using nuclear energy and explains that technologies and procedures for safe production and processing are available today.
