Transcript of Nuclear Energy

Nuclear power generation does emit relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide. The emissions of green house gases and therefore the contribution of nuclear power plants to global warming is therefore relatively little. This technology is readily available, it does not have to be developed first. It is possible to generate a high amount of electrical energy in one single plant.

where is it used
The USA uses the most nuclear energy. There is highest number of nuclear power plants in the world. USA needs energy and the easiest way to get it is building nuclear power plants. other countries that use nuclear power are France, Russia, and japan. The united states uses 20% more nuclear power than these other countries . However France,Russia,japan create more energy via nuclear power percentage wise they don't create as many total kilowatt hours as the USA.
Nuclear energy
the problem of radioactive waste is still an unsolved one. the waste from Nuclear energy is extremely dangerous and it has to be carefully looked after for several thousand years according to united states environmental protection agency standards. high risk: despite s generally high security standards, accidents can still happen. It is technically impossible to build a plant with 100% security. As small probability of failure will always last. The consequences of an accident would be devastating both for human being as far as nature.
How is it used

Like coal or natural gas plants, nuclear plants create electricity by boiling water and creating steam. The steam then turns a turbine that creates electricity. Nuclear powers plants do not burn fossil fuel. Nuclear science can also be used in medical produces.
nuclear energy is another non-renewable source that has gained popularity in the last few years. with the depositing resources and high energy demand the world is looking towards the nuclear energy as its source that is created from the nucleus of an atom. nuclear energy comes from uranium a nonrenewable resource that must shut down to remove its spent uranium fuel which has become radioactive waste.
nuclear energy uses uranium as fuel which is a scarce resource. the supply of uranium s expected to last only for the next 30 to 60 years. therefore nuclear energy is not a renewable energy. its a nonrenewable energy.
although power plants are regulated by federal and state laws to protect human health and the environmental impacts associated with power generation technologies. The purpose of the follow section is to give consumers a better idea of the idea of the specific air, water, land, and radioactive waste releases associated with nuclear power electricity generation.
what is nuclear energy
Where does it come from?
Nuclear energy comes from nuclear fussion. Nuclear energy is generated naturally and man made under human control.Naturally, nuclear is produced by the sun and other stars that make heat and light through nuclear reaction.
environmental impact
In recent years there has been a slowdown of electricity demand growth and financing has become more difficult, which has an impact on large projects such as nuclear reactors, with very large upfront costs and long project cycles which carry a large variety of risks.In Eastern Europe, a number of long-established projects are struggling to find finance, notably Belene in Bulgaria and the additional reactors at Cernavoda in Romania, and some potential backers have pulled out. Where cheap gas is available and its future supply relatively secure, this also poses a major problem for nuclear projects.
