Nuclear Energy – How Feasible?

The incidents of the Fukushima disaster are still fresh in the memory, especially to those in Japan and other eastern countries. There have also been other nuclear disasters recorded in history. This explains why so many people are against the use of nuclear energy.Oil Refinery

Looking at countries that actually have the resources to implement nuclear power plants, it seems as though they really just have no option but to use it. Japan for example, are already looking at restarting their use nuclear power plant considering the economy and the need to keep business and commerce going in the country.

Also, China’s pollution from their coal plants has become very severe in the atmosphere. And now they just need to figure out an alternative way of generating electricity, so people can at least have fresh air to breathe.

The challenges posed by producing energy through nuclear plants have been identified: the cost, its safety, managing its waste and the risk of proliferation.

Taking a closer look at those challenges, it is possible to develop technologies that can eliminate the risks associated with nuclear energy. They will be developed as small reactors that can take care of cost, safety and managing of the nuclear wastes.

The small reactors will also use up to 95% of the nuclear fuel, preventing the unused fuel from accumulating for a long time.

Really, the time has come for the world to begin looking at the possibility of harnessing nuclear energy as a source of power.
