Nuclear Power is Back in the Conversation

The power shortfall in Asia and Europe is a result of the ongoing transition towards green energy. To overcome the power gap, countries boosted their dependency on fossil fuels more than before rather than relying on pricey renewables like wind and solar. Globally, the discussions on nuclear energy have shown an increasing trend, and theContinue reading “Nuclear Power is Back in the Conversation”

European Union plans to classify Nuclear as Green Energy

Nuclear energy has always been in the good books of the unperishable debates done all over the world to declare nuclear as green energy. The results showed when European Union, the third most carbon-producing entity drafted landmark proposals to classify nuclear energy as green energy. Although the proposal must be passed by the majority ofContinue reading “European Union plans to classify Nuclear as Green Energy”

Rosatom REMIX fuel began trials in Balakovo Nuclear Reactor

Russian Atomic Agency, Rosatom has begun the trials of the REMIX fuel. REMIX fuel is a mixture of recycled uranium and plutonium fuel extracted from the spent fuel along with enriched uranium fuel. Such fuel will reduce the cost of enrichment, provide high burn-up and improve the overall efficiency. The uranium and plutonium extracted fromContinue reading “Rosatom REMIX fuel began trials in Balakovo Nuclear Reactor”

Nuclear energy for net-zero world report for CoP 26 Summit

The brochure talked about the benefits of nuclear energy and its resilience against climate change impacts. It was presented atContinue reading “Nuclear energy for net-zero world report for CoP 26 Summit”

Renewable fuel additives produced via nuclear radiation

Radiation from spent nuclear fuel could be used to create a valuable fuel additive required for renewable biodiesel. A paper published in Nature Communications Chemistry (September edition) revealed that unexplored renewable processes can be realized by using ionizing radiation (gamma rays) produced from spent fuel pools. Scientists have made a remarkable achievement of getting solketal,Continue reading “Renewable fuel additives produced via nuclear radiation”
