Published by Division of Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Environment, Atomic Energy Society of Japan Near Optimal Disassembly Sequence Generation for Large Equipment in Nuclear Plant Atsuko ENOMOTO, Hiroshi SEKI, Takuya YOSHIDA, Junya TAHATA, Mitsutaka IMAMURA, Hiroshi NAGASE. This presents a balanced overview of the major methods currently available for obtaining numerical solutions in neutron and gamma-ray transport. It focuses on methods particularly applicable to the complex problems encountered in the analysis of reactors, fusion devices, radiation shielding, and other nuclear systems. It will be valuable as a self-contained .
Life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the production of nuclear power (in g CO2e/kWh) are uncertain due partly to a paucity of data on emissions from individual phases of the nuclear fuel cycle. Here, we present the first comprehensive life cycle assessment of GHG emissions produced from the mining and milling of uranium in Canada. The study includes Cited by: 5. Uranium for Nuclear Power: Resources, Mining and Transformation to Fuel discusses the nuclear industry and its dependence on a steady supply of competitively priced uranium as a key factor in its long-term sustainability. A better understanding of uranium ore geology and advances in exploration and mining methods will facilitate the discovery and exploitation of new uranium .
Nuclear Energy provides an authoritative reference on all aspects of the nuclear industry from fundamental reactor physics calculations to reactor design, nuclear fuel resources, nuclear fuel cycle, radiation detection and protection, and nuclear power economics.

Environmental analysis of the uranium fuel cycle. Washington, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Radiation Programs, Field Operations Division, (OCoLC) This report is one part of a three-part analysis of the impact of the various operations within the uranium fuel cycle.
The complete analysis comprises three reports: The Fuel Supply (Part I), Light-Water Reactors (Part II), and Fuel Reprocessing (Part III). Fuel reprocessing also relates to fuel sup- ply; however, this activity has been analyzed separately in part 3 of the environmental analysis of the uranium fuel cycle.

Keywords. In the Office of Radiation Programs issued an environmental analysis of the ur,anium fuel cycle, which was is~ued in three volumes covering fuel supply, power reactors, and fuel reprocessing. Sub sequent to the issuance of this analysis, the Agency proposed environmental radiation protection standards on May 29,for.
Environmental Analysis of the Uranium Fuel Cycle. Slide 2. Background SNL performed a review of Title 40 CFR Part EPA’s environmental analysis of nuclear fuel reprocessing Review of Environmental Analysis of the Uranium Fuel Cycle - Sandia National Laboratories.
The nuclear fuel cycle starts with exploration for uranium and the development of mines to extract uranium ore. A variety of techniques are used to locate uranium, such as airborne radiometric surveys, chemical sampling of groundwater and soils, and exploratory drilling to understand the underlying geology.
The uranium fuel cycle includes all the steps of using uranium to generate electricity (fission), from mining to disposal/storage. These steps are described below. Uranium Recovery. Uranium ore is mined--much like coal--from underground mines or surface the USA, a ton (2, pounds) of uranium ore usually contains about 3 to 10 pounds of uranium.

The results indicate that the extent of recycle is generally a more important predictor of environmental metric performance than whether the fuel cycle uses uranium or thorium, although there are.

The Nuclear Fuel Cycle has been extensively revised since its previous edition published in and it includes a whole new chapter on nuclear safeguards. The book covers all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle—from cradle to grave.
Topics include the available nuclear fuel resources (uranium and thorium), extraction of the metals from the ore, fabrication of nuclear fuel, use of the fuel. The publications by means of which the IAEA establishes standards are issued in the IAEA Safety Standards Series.
This series covers nuclear safety, radiation safety, transport safety and waste safety. The publication categories in the series are Safety Fundamentals, Safety Requirements and Safety Size: KB.

However, thorium only comprises about 2% of the total natural resource requirements of the system while natural uranium comprises the other 98% (SNL, ); thus, the system is better described as a uranium-based fuel cycle with minor amounts of thorium added for specific functional by: 1.
cycle is the cradle-to-grave life cycle from extracting uranium ore from the earth through power production in a nuclear reactor to permanent disposal of the resulting spent nuclear fuel.

Editors: Jasani, B., Niemeyer, I., Nussbaum, S., Perspectives of Satellite Imagery Analysis for Verifying the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Pages The subject of nuclear power is fraught with controversy, and it is often discussed with an inadequate understanding of the science behind today's reactor technology.
This book covers the entire nuclear fuel cycle, from mining uranium ore to disposal of radioactive wastes. It is intended for a broad audience of nonspecialist readers.Energy and the Environment Cost- Benefit Analysis originates from a conference, the objective of which is to set a global standard to measure the cost and benefit of human’s production of energy.
The book focuses on the analysis of the societal and ecological effects of such a production. It also enumerates some existing sources of energy.
