This book presents a view of nuclear energy as an important carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weapon proliferation, and the cost of electric by: 9.

The encyclopedia is packed with cutting. After World War II, the Atomic Energy Commission was established and later the International Atomic Energy Agency. Research and development efforts led to the deployment of the first nuclear power plants. This chapter ends by addressing the controversies surrounding nuclear energy in the late twentieth century.

Outlining nuclear energy's discovery and applications throughout history, Mahaffey's brilliant and accessible book is essential to understanding the astounding phenomenon of nuclear power in an age where renewable energy and climate change have become the defining concerns of the twenty-first century/5().

Despite the lack of consensus on the compatibility of nuclear energy with sustainable development, nuclear technologies are regarded by many as a viable option to satisfy specific needs.

This publication explores the possible contribution of nuclear energy toFile Size: 1MB. It explores nuclear energy in the context of climate change and sustainable development.

This book also examines the international legal framework on notification, assistance and emergency preparedness in the event of nuclear accidents, considers legal aspects of decommissioning of nuclear power plants and main legislative trends on nuclear.

An increasing number of countries are now looking at the nuclear option as a way to secure the energy supply needed to support development.

"Nuclear power continues to grow: 56 new nuclear reactors are under construction, the largest number since ," says Yury Sokolov, IAEA Deputy Director General for Nuclear Energy. Although they are tiny, atoms have a large amount of energy holding their nuclei together. Certain isotopes of some elements can be split and will release part of their energy as heat.

This splitting is called fission. The heat released in fission can be used to help generate electricity in powerplants.

Uranium (U) is one of the isotopes that fissions easily. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was formed to administer the programs. Later, the AEC was split.

Currently, the Department of Energy is responsible for development of nuclear energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission enforces rules on radiation set by the Environmental Protection Agency. This book looks at Generation IV (GEN IV) nuclear reactor design and the technology known as nuclear micro reactors that is currently under development.

Coverage includes the Available Formats: Hardcover eBook. An exploration of how and why Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China and India have initiated and developed nuclear energy programs and what challenges they face today.

Were the nuclear programmes driven by the low energy endowment, a desire to pursue international prestige, national security concerns. Nuclear protects our air. Nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and mercury: all things you don’t want in the air you breathe.

Nuclear energy provides power 24/7 without a trace of those pollutants. Nuclear boosts international development. Nuclear energy helps developing nations meet sustainable development goals. The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is a specialised agency within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an intergovernmental organisation of industrialised countries, based in Paris, France.

The mission of the NEA is to assist its Member countries in maintaining and further developing, through international co-operation, the. Energy development is the field of activities focused on obtaining sources of energy from natural resources.

These activities include production of conventional, alternative and renewable sources of energy, and for the recovery and reuse of energy that would otherwise be wasted. Energy conservation and efficiency measures reduce the demand for energy development, and can.

A significant milestone in the history of nuclear technology, Nuclear Energy Encyclopedia: Science, Technology, and Applications is a comprehensive and authoritative reference guide written by a committee of the world's leading energy experts.

The programs to be evaluated were: Nuclear Power (NP ), Generation IV (GEN IV), the Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative (NHI), the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP)/Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI), and the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) facilities.

This is a very good book about the history of nuclear energy. The author discusses the development of physics as it relates to nuclear processes, the development of nuclear weapons, and the rise and fall (and perhaps reemergence) of safe nuclear electricity production/5.

Fission and Fusion. There are two fundamental nuclear processes considered for energy production: fission and fusion. Fission is the energetic splitting of large atoms such as Uranium or Plutonium into two smaller atoms, called fission products. To split an atom, you have to hit it.

DOE headquarters (DOE-HQ) has decided to focus its nuclear energy research and. In an unanticipated positive development for nuclear energy, the capacity factor of U.

reactors has increased dramatically in recent years, and most operating reactors now appear headed for year license renewals. Nuclear power can make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while delivering energy in the increasingly large quantities needed for global economic development.

Nuclear power plants produce virtually no greenhouse gas emissions or air pollutants during their operation and only very low emissions over their full life cycle.

The IAEA Milestones Approach enables a sound development process for a nuclear power programme. It is a phased comprehensive method to assist countries that are considering or planning their first nuclear power plant. Experience suggests that the time from the initial consideration of the nuclear power option by a country to the operation of its first nuclear.

This publication was developed by Nuclear Power Technology Development Section, Division of Nuclear Power of the IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy in cooperation with Member States.
