Sustainable development and Nuclear Power Prepared by Maxim Gorobchenko Content • • • • • Introduction Reasons Problems Wayouts Conclusion Reasons Low costs of building nuclear power plant Radioactive elements release great amount of energy by their fussion. Low costs of mounting necessary equipment Problems • 1. Great risk of occurring environmental disaster • 2. Toxic spent nuclear fuel and nuclear wastes Way outs • 1). We can bury it deep down in the solid geological formation in the Earth crust such as granite and build different storages. • 2). We can do nuclear reprocessing to separate the spent fuel to different combination of reprocessed uranium, plutonium. • 3). We can send it into the space. • 4). We can transport it to the other country, which allows importing nuclear waste Conslusion • What we should do to protect world’s environment from nuclear products?
