A limitation of Sargas technology is that the system works under pressure and only a handful of coal-fired power plants so far use the so-called Pressurised Fluidised Bed Combustion technology -- in Sweden, Japan and Germany.. That means it can be used in new plants, including any burning natural gas, but cannot be easily retro-fitted at plants where exhaust gases come out at atmospheric pressure.. Its not a big technology for existing plants but for future plants it could be interesting ... theoretically you dont need so much energy, said Eva-Katrin Lindman, head of research and development at Fortum Varme..

Nevada power company NV Energy Inc proposed a plan to accelerate the retirement of itscoal-fired generating facilities and the construction of naturalgas and renewable power plants. NV Energy proposed its so-called NVision plan to reducecarbon and other emissions on Wednesday as an amendment toNevada Senate Bill 123, which revises several of the statesrenewable and other energy policies. This proposal by NV Energy is part of a growing trend withU.S. Western power companies to reduce greenhouse gas and otheremissions by shutting coal-fired power plants. Over the next 10 years, NV Energy proposed to accelerate theretirement of its 553-megawatt (MW) Reid Gardner coal plant insouthern Nevada and end its interest in the 2,250-MW Navajo coalplant in north central Arizona. There are four units at Reid Gardner. The three 100-MW Units1, 2 and 3 are currently scheduled to shut in 2020 and the255-MW Unit 4 is expected to shut in 2023, according to NVEnergy. Under the NVision plan, the company
Natural News) No one in their right mind wants to breathe dirty air or leave our country and our earth worse off for the next generation and beyond. That includes "conservatives" and "capitalists" who are always accused by the Left as wanting to destroy the planet.. That said, there has to be a better balance between sustainable environmental policies and meeting the needs of a modern society. Yet thanks to record-cold temperatures this winter, were seeing that in parts of the country dominated by Left-wing politics, decisions involving policy and infrastructure have lacked a rationality factor.. For years, progressive environmentalism forced on power companies throughout New England have resulted in reductions in the number of coal-fired power plants. There has been so much loss of capacity that today, as temperatures plunge and demand for power rises, operators are struggling to meet the needs of the people. And the mass failure of the electric grid during this record cold will mean people ...
In 2005, the province of Ontario began a process that would eventually lead to the phasing out of its coal-fired power plants, the largest of which were the Lambton and Nanticoke facilities in southern Ontario. The rationale for shuttering these plants was a 2005 cost-benefit analysis that assumed that about $3 billion in annual savings to the health care system would come from the reduction of smog-related air contaminants. However, that analysis, and another one done for the province the same year on the effects of cross-border air pollution, reported that the phase-out of coal would have only very modest effects on Ontario air quality, which is consistent with emissions inventory data showing that electric power generation was a minor contributor to particulate and ozone pollution at the time. The cost savings estimate came from assuming very large health effects associated with very small changes in air pollution.. In the aftermath of the coal phase-out, and the extremely costly changes to ...
Like most other steam-producing electricity plants, coal units typically withdraw and consume water from nearby water bodies such as lakes, rivers or oceans, to create steam for turning their turbines.. The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) reports that a typical coal-fired power plant employing a once-through cooling system withdraws 70−180 billion gallons of water every year and consumes 0.36-1.1 billion gallons of it. A coal plant with a wet-recirculating cooling system extracts only a fraction of that figure, but still consumes 1.7−4.0 billion gallons a year, while a dry-cooled system uses much less.. Around 53% of US coal plants use once-through cooling and 40% wet-recirculating systems. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that dry-cooling facilities produce around 7% less power than wet-recirculating plants; hence, under 1% of units use this technology.. Water also plays a pivotal role in coal mining and transportation. In addition to burying streams, contaminating ...

Parsons and LLNL scientists and engineers performed design and engineering work for power plant pre-conceptual designs based on the anticipated laser fusion demonstrations at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). Work included identifying concepts of operations and maintenance (O&M) and associated requirements relevant to fusion power plant systems analysis. A laser fusion power plant would incorporate a large process and power conversion facility with a laser system and fusion engine serving as the heat source, based in part on some of the systems and technologies advanced at NIF. Process operations would be similar in scope to those used in chemical, oil refinery, and nuclear waste processing facilities, while power conversion operations would be similar to those used in commercial thermal power plants. While some aspects of the tritium fuel cycle can be based on existing technologies, many aspects of a laser fusion power plant presents several important and unique O&M requirements that demand ...
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced a proposal to require coal-burning power plants, including seven facilities in New England, to make the steepest emissions cuts in over a decade. The "Interstate Air Quality Rule" will require power plants to upgrade their facilities to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). This announcement is in addition to agency proposals to reduce mercury emissions from coal-burning power plants. Taken together, these rules will require utilities to spend tens of billions of dollars to reduce the emissions of these pollutants. The results will be improved public health, ecosystems and visibility. "These actions are the largest single investment in any clean air program in history," said EPA Administrator Mike Leavitt. "While we continue to believe that the Clear Skies Act is the best approach to reducing power plant emissions, and we are committed to working with our congressional sponsors to move this landmark legislation through ...
The Kohtla-Järve Power Plant (Estonian: Kohtla-Järve soojuselektrijaam) is an oil shale-fired power plant in Kohtla-Järve, Estonia, about 15 km to north-west of the Ahtme Power Plant. It is owned by VKG Soojus, a subsidiary of Viru Keemia Grupp. The Kohtla-Järve Power Plant was commissioned in 1949-1967 with designed electrical capacity 48 MW. The first generator of the plant was commissioned in January 1949. This was the first time when the oil shale pulverized-firing combustion technology was implemented for power generation. The first generator had a capacity of 12 MW. At the beginning the plant used Riley Stoker boilers and General Electric generators; however, boilers developed for the pulverized firing of coal and lignite were not fit to work on pulverized oil shale. As of 2005, the power plant had capacity of 39 MW electricity and 534 MW of heat. It is equipped by five stream generators and two hot water boilers (Barnaul BKZ-75-39F middle-pressure boilers.

In March 2010, Colorados largest utility Xcel Energy promised to cut air pollution over the next seven years. It will do so by either retiring Front Range coal-fired power plants or replacing them with natural gas and other sources of power. The company is required to submit plans by Aug. 15 to the state Public Utilities Commissions to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions at coal plants by up to 80 percent over the next eight years.[4]. In August, 2010 Xcel filed its plan to curb emissions from its coal-fired power plants along the front range. The plan stated that Xcel would shut down the Cherokee Stations fourth coal-fired generator by 2022 and replace it with a new, natural gas-fired generator. Xcels plan also called for the shutdown of Cherokees three other coal units before 2017, as well as the construction of a new natural gas plant.. However, in late September 2010, the Colorado public health department and the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) went after Xcels $1.3 billion plan to curb ...

The Environmental Protection Agency is currently working to establish common-sense standards for pollution such as smog, particulate matter, carbon dioxide, mercury, and arsenic. The agency is gathering public comment on its Mercury and Air Toxics Rule, greenhouse gas standards are nearly finalized, and an ozone and smog rule is under development. These measures will protect public health, save millions of dollars on health care costs, improve workplace safety and productivity, and create much needed jobs.. Mercury pollution from coal-fired power plants contributes to the contamination of our fisheries and puts Montanans at risk, especially women and children. And although Montana is one of 19 states that have a standard for mercury emissions, mercury pollution does not respect state boundaries, which is why it is so important that the EPA regulate coal-fired power plants throughout the United States, because many states have not developed their own mechanisms for reduction. According to the ...

This long-awaited effort to reduce toxic air pollution from oil and coal-fired power plants means cleaner air and healthier waters for Colorado, said Jim Martin, EPAs regional administrator in Denver. The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards will protect Colorados families from harmful pollution and will generate health benefits and economic investments that far outweigh the costs of compliance. EPA estimates the new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards will prevent up to 140 premature deaths and create $1.1 billion in health benefits annually in Colorado beginning in 2016, when the rules become fully effective. Mercury has been shown to harm the nervous systems of children exposed in the womb, impairing thinking, learning and early development. Other pollutants that will be reduced by these standards can cause cancer, premature death, heart disease, and asthma. The standards will apply to generating units at a dozen coal-fired power plants in Colorado and will reinforce the States efforts to ...

According to a release, osmotic power plants can be located anywhere freshwater runs into the sea; they produce no noise or polluting emissions and can be integrated into existing industrial zones, such as in the basements of industrial buildings.The plant generates power by exploiting the energy available when fresh water and seawater are mixed, resulting in a renewable and emissions-free energy source-one that Statkraft has been researching for the past 10 years.The prototype osmotic plant will have a limited production capacity and is intended primarily for testing and development purposes, with the aim of constructing a commercial osmotic power plant within a few years time.. ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - A river basin-based model of advanced power plant cooling technologies for mitigating water management challenges. AU - Stillwell,Ashlynn S.. AU - Clayton,Mary E.. AU - Webber,Michael E.. AU - Allen,David T.. AU - Webster,Mort. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - Thermoelectric power plants require large volumes of water for cooling, which can introduce drought vulnerability and compete with other water needs. Alternative cooling technologies, such as cooling towers and hybrid wet-dry or dry cooling, present opportunities to reduce water diversions. This case study uses a customized river basin-based model for the Brazos River basin in Texas to analyze water availability during the full execution of water rights - a scenario where each water rights holder diverts the full permitted volume with zero return flow. Our model results show that switching the cooling technologies at power plants in the Brazos River basin to less water-intense alternative designs can potentially reduce annual ...
Demolishing the South Bay Power Plant in Chula Vista took another big step June 14 when the California Coastal Commission approved issuing a permit to remove what many residents consider an eyesore.. Yet when the actual demolition will happen is uncertain.

Mayor Cheryl Cox said the Coastal Commissions unanimous decision "helps us move closer to creating a world-class resort and residential destination on our portion of San Diego Bay.". Removal of the power plant has been in the works for about 13 years following the port districts acquisition of the plant from San Diego Gas & Electric Co. in 1999. Subsequently, the port entered into a series of contracts to operate the power plant with Duke Energy, LS Power and Dynegy South Bay LLC, a unit of ...
SCWR (Supercritical Water Reactor) is one of the promising Generation IV nuclear systems, which has higher thermal power efficiency than current pressurized water reactor. It is necessary to perform the thermal equilibrium and thermal power calculation for the conceptual design and further monitoring and calibration of the SCWR. One visual software named H-Power was developed to calculate thermal power and its uncertainty of SCWR, in which the advanced IAPWS-IF97 industrial formulation was used to calculate the thermodynamic properties of water and steam. The ISO-5167-4: 2003 standard was incorporated in the code as the basis of orifice plate to compute the flow rate. New heat balance model and uncertainty estimate have also been included in the code. In order to validate H-Power, an assessment was carried out by using data published by US and Qinshan Phase II. The results showed that H-Power was able to estimate the thermal power of SCWR.

Reducing air pollution from the largest sources of emissions, including coal-fired power plants, is one of EPAs National Enforcement Initiatives for 2011-2013. SO2 and NOx, two key pollutants emitted from power plants, have numerous adverse effects on human health and are significant contributors to acid rain, smog, and haze. These pollutants are converted in the air to fine particles of particulate matter that can cause severe respiratory and cardiovascular impacts, and premature death. Reducing these harmful air pollutants will benefit the communities located near NIPSCO facilities, particularly communities disproportionately impacted by environmental risks and vulnerable populations, including children. Considering that air pollution from power plants can drift significant distances downwind, this settlement will reduce air pollution outside the immediate region ...
The German Federal Government intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% until 2020 from 1990. According to experts, this can only be done by shutting down old coal-fired power plants one by one.. In 2017 approximately 37% of the total gross electricity production was based on coal. This is a marked decrease from 1990 when brown and hard coal accounted for 57% of the power generated.. Coal still was the most important energy source in 2017 but the importance of renewable forms of energy is on the rise: while renewable energy sources had accounted for only just under 4% of total energy production in 1990, their share had risen to as much as 33% by 2017. Nuclear power, in contrast, is becoming less important: in 1990, 28% of the total gross electricity produced came from nuclear power plants but that figure was down to 12% by 2017.. ...
... The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) of Texas is both a water and energy supplier to a large area of Central Texas. LCRA generates approximately 10 percent of its power from hydroelectric power plants on the six dams in the Highland Lakes system of reservoirs. To improve power production, LCRA has investigated alternative operating procedures to increase the winter scheduling of hydroelectric power generation in the upper reservoirs of the Highland Lakes system without adversely impacting available water supplies. A methodology using both optimization and simulation techniques was developed to evaluate the ability of the hydroelectric facilities to meet weather-related winter peaking requirements. A linear programming procedure determined the hourly power generation schedule, over a 24 hour period, that maximized the total amount of power generated over the six hours of peak power demand.

The nations power plants are aging. An increasing number require replacement parts; others cant keep up with new environmental regulations.. A report released today [PDF] by the Boston-based think tank Ceres estimates that in the next two decades, up to $100 billion will be invested in the electric utility industry every year - twice the amount invested in recent years.. According to the report, that boom in investment will take place in a shifting regulatory environment. Air pollution and greenhouse gas restrictions will increase, and fossil fuel-burning power plants will have to keep up. Governments are setting requirements for energy from renewable sources. (California, for example, is targeting a 33% renewable energy ratio by 2020.) Smart grids and new consumer technologies are changing how people think about energy production and consumption.. The good news is that the industry is growing, and will have an unprecedented chance to clean up its act. The bad - or cautionary - news is that ...
As a doctor, I see all too often the impacts to public health because utilities have not planned for how and when to reduce the harmful pollution that comes from burning coal and other fossil fuels. As a pediatrician, I work with children, who are the most vulnerable and most sensitive to dangerous pollutants in our air and water. Ive treated hundreds of children whose health is compromised by pollutants in our air and water, so I was pleased to see that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a proposed new rule earlier this spring to limit the amount of mercury and other air toxins that power plants can emit into the air, and scheduled a public hearing on it in Atlanta today. This rule will establish nationwide standards for mercury and toxic air pollution from coal-fired power plants, and it is crucial to protecting public health and the environment. Methylmercury is the type of mercury that poses the most danger to humans, like the children I care for. Mercury is a potent neurotoxin ...
The closure of a coal-fired power plant on the Navajo Nation sooner than expected will be a major blow to a region where coal has been a mainstay of the economy for decades.

Thats a bit of a grandiose way of describing it, to be honest. It only charges a set of AA batteries, which youre then supposed to charge your own gadgets with. But it is powered by the current in a stream of water, so the hydroelectric part is correct. And hey, it makes for a better headline, so were not apologizing. Whats more, we kind of like what HydroBee is trying to do here. Its supposed to be a replacement for other take-you-off-the-grid gadgets, which use a variety of methods for generating power in the wild. They usually have their drawbacks however, like solar powered chargers requiring, well, sunlight. And even hydrogen fuel cells will eventually run out, because you cant very well carry thousands of hydrogen packs with you. The HydroBees achilles heel is of course that it requires the presence of a stream, but if you do have that, you can count on almost unlimited power, day or night. Just place it in the water with a tether, and come back two hours later to a charged set of ...
The Obama administration forged ahead on Tuesday with the first-ever limits on heat-trapping pollution from new power plants, ignoring protests from industry and Republicans who have said the regulation will raise electricity prices and kill off coal, the dominant U.S. energy source. But the proposal also fell short of environmentalists hopes because it goes easier than it could have on coal-fired power, one of the largest sources of the gases blamed for global warming.

Tampa Electric Co. says the amounts of toxic chemicals its power plants released into the environment last year pose no health risks - although some environmental groups dispute that.. The information reported by TECO marks the first year utilities have been required to file a Toxics Release Inventory to the Environmental Protection Agency. The report, which manufacturing plants have been required to file since 1986, looks at 650 chemicals.. "When these numbers go out…they look so big and they look pretty scary," said George Gray, deputy director of the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis - which did an independent study of U.S. power plant emissions. "In my examination of the potential risk that might be posed from these emissions from power plants, frankly, theyre tiny.". Gray said the risks are negligible, even for someone who lived next to a power plant outdoors for 70 years. He said most people are exposed to more pollution driving a car.. Gail Kamaras of the Legal Environmental Assistance ...
Chinas ambition to create green cities powered by wind farms comes with a dirty little secret: Dozens of new coal-fired power plants need to be installed as well.
State-run cement maker PT Semen Indonesia is considering developing a new 200-megawatt (MW) power plant in a bid to further slash the companys electricity costs. Semen Indonesia finance director Ahyanizzaman said on Friday the company would build the power plant in Tuban, East Java, where 60 percent of the cement producers electricity consumption comes from.…
In 2010, Abt Associates issued a study commissioned by the Clean Air Task Force, a nonprofit research and advocacy organization, quantifying the deaths and other health effects attributable to fine particle pollution from coal-fired power plants.[1] Fine particle pollution consists of a complex mixture of soot, heavy metals, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Among these particles, the most dangerous are those less than 2.5 microns in diameter, which are so tiny that they can evade the lungs natural defenses, enter the bloodstream, and be transported to vital organs. Impacts are especially severe among the elderly, children, and those with respiratory disease. The study found that over 13,000 deaths and tens of thousands of cases of chronic bronchitis, acute bronchitis, asthma, congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, dysrhythmia, ischemic heart disease, chronic lung disease, and pneumonia each year are attributable to fine particle pollution from U.S. coal plant emissions. ...
EPA Steam Electric Power Generating Effluent Limitations Guidelines, or ELGs, impact coal-fired power plant operations and their wastewater management. Specifically, the ELGs impose limits for suspended solids, arsenic, mercury, selenium, and nitrate/nitrite for Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) wastewater. These regulations drive the need for technology based solutions that address and adapt to variables such as the nature of wastewater streams, types of contaminants, contaminant loading, and costs. In this guide you will learn about the best available technologies for complying with the new standards. One of the leading contenders in this process is the Fluidized Bed Reactor or FBR, which removes soluble selenium and other metals from FGD wastewater. Advantages of fluidized bed reactors include optimum microorganism efficiency, smaller overall footprint, steady-state operation, lower hydraulic residence times, system robustness, and lower costs.

Nigeria has approved the construction of a $5.8 billion hydroelectric power plant by a Chinese state firm, the power minister said on Wednesday, the latest in a series of Chinese deals since the project was first envisioned decades ago.
This January the Maryland Healthy Air Act goes into effect. It aims to significantly reduce emissions of air pollutants from the states coal-fired power plants. Mercury, like sulfur dioxides and nitrogen oxides, is one of the pollutants that can be released into the atmosphere during the combustion of coal and other fuels. The new law requires mercury emissions to be reduced by 80% now, and 90% by 2013, relative to a 2002 baseline. Maryland is just the latest to join a growing roster of states that have adopted tougher emissions regulations. Cindy Gilmour will pay close attention to the impact of these new regulations on mercury levels in the Chesapeake Bay and its watersheds. Gilmour is a senior scientist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), in Edgewater, Maryland. She took a few minutes to answer some questions about the science of mercury, why its of concern and what she does to monitor it in ecosystems ...
Environmental and health concerns lead to stricter regulations on power plant emission. Sensors play an important role, not only as part of the process control to ensure that the effluent stays under the regulated values, but also to increase the pollution removal efficiency and to decrease the reagent consumption.. Previous studies, on the use of SiC based Field Effect Transistors (FET) as NH3 sensors in Tekniska Verken power plants and as CO sensors for the control of the domestic boilers, have shown promising results. Moreover, these sensors can withstand high temperature operation and are considerably cheaper than most conventional sensors used in power plants. The price of the sensors enable the installation of multiple sensors in one flue gas duct section, which lead to better monitoring of the flue gas uniformity. Based on that argument, this study is performed to determine whether it is possible to expand the possible application of SiC-FET sensors for the detection of other pollutants ...

Editor - The Chronicles May 12 editorial (A blight on the green city ) has done a great disservice to those of us who suffer daily from the toxic impacts of the polluting Potrero power plant. For more than seven years, we have lobbied California regulators to allow the plant to close without requiring the operation of peaking plants as a replacement power source. Editor - Various city departments and citizens advisory committees labored for more than five years on a balanced approach to closing the Mirant Potrero power plant with city built and operated peaker plants. Furthermore, San Franciscos electric demand keeps growing, partially caused by such environmentally beneficial projects as electrifying Caltrain, Muni bus lines and cruise ships. The root of all calamity Editor - John Freimans May 12 letter speculated that the United States failure to join the Kyoto Protocol might make us responsible for all weather-related catastrophes, including the recent cyclone in Burma.

The dried cooling air 460 may ...
This CD contains the proceedings of an IAEA Technical Meeting on Issues and Science Relating to Fusion Power Plant Safety. Progress in fusion research and technology over the past two decades has boosted awareness of the potential of fusion to be a lasting and clean source of energy. There is now an increased demand to assess the balance between technological outputs and safety requirements aiming at satisfying the licensing requests for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). Efforts in this direction started to develop during the ITER design phases, and the host factor has now been included in it. However, this work represents the beginning of a more challenging process: establishing the safety basis for the licensing of a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). During this meeting, major areas of relevance were identified and assessed, and scientific recommendations and guidelines were assembled to determine the direction of future research and development activities ...

[email protected]: The Artist as Researcher At best, when we behold or hear the things artists make, we feel more than perceive the research and labor that went into their creation. But this panel discussion at Power Plant Gallery, at which a light lunch will be served, draws that background into the foreground for an illuminating look at the workings of artist-scholars. The panelists are current Power Plant artist-in-residence Julia Gartrell, a contemporary sculptor rooted in Appalachian craft; M.C. Taylor (aka Hiss Golden Messenger), a musician who has previously drawn on photo archives of rural life to inform his neo-rustic songs; Howard L. Craft, a playwright and poet who explores black American history in works such as Freight; and Aya Shabu, a choreographer and dancer with expertise in African diaspora traditions.

Ships sail on the Yangtze River near Badong, 100km (62 miles) from the Three Gorges dam in Hubei province, on August 7, 2012. The environmental problems associated with the Three Gorges dam illustrate Chinas energy dilemma: To move away from its reliance on coal-fired power plants, Beijing says it has to develop cleaner forms of power. Hydropower is the most cost-effective way China can meet its energy needs, but its problems are still unfolding. The dam cost China more than $50 billion and displaced 1.4 million people while another 100,000 people may be moved from Hubei and the southwestern municipality of Chongqing in the next three to five years due to geological risks an official said in April.

In spite of industries effort over the last 40 years, corrosion-related issues continue to be one of the largest unresolved problems for nuclear power plants worldwide. There are several types of strange corrosion phenomena from the point of view of our current understanding of corrosion science established in other fields. Some of these are IGSCC, PWSCC, AOA, and FAC (Erosion-Corrosion). Through studying and coping with diverse corrosion phenomena, the author believes that they share a common basis with respect to the assumed corrosion mechanism (e.g., local cell action hypothesis). In general, local cell action is rarely severe since it produces a fairly uniform corrosion. The long cell action that transports electrons through structures far beyond the region of local cell corrosion activities has been identified as a basic mechanism in soil corrosion. If this mechanism is assumed in nuclear power plants, the structure becomes anodic in the area where the potential is less positive and ...
We estimate the contamination risks from the atmospheric dispersion of radionuclides released by severe nuclear power plant accidents using the ECHAM/Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy) atmospheric chemistry (EMAC) atmospheric chemistry-general circulation model at high resolution (50 km). We present an overview of global risks and also a case study of nuclear power plants that are currently under construction, planned and proposed in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, a region prone to earthquakes. We implemented continuous emissions from each location, making the simplifying assumption that all potential accidents release the same amount of radioactivity. We simulated atmospheric transport and decay, focusing on 137Cs and 131I as proxies for particulate and gaseous radionuclides, respectively. We present risk maps for potential surface layer concentrations, deposition and doses to humans from the inhalation exposure of 131I. The estimated risks exhibit seasonal variability, with the highest

Spent nuclear fuel, occasionally called used nuclear fuel, is nuclear fuel that has been irradiated in a nuclear reactor (usually at a nuclear power plant) to the point where it is no longer useful in sustaining a nuclear reaction.. After uranium fuel has been used in a reactor for a while, it is no longer as efficient in splitting its atoms and producing heat to make electricity. It is then called "spent" nuclear fuel. About one-fourth to one-third of the total fuel load is spent and is removed from the reactor every 12 to 18 months and replaced with fresh fuel. The spent nuclear fuel is high-level radioactive waste.. The NRC regulates all commercial reactors in the United States, including nuclear power plants that produce electricity, and university research reactors. The agency regulates the possession, transportation, storage and disposal of spent fuel produced by the nuclear reactors.. Spent nuclear fuel is highly radioactive and potentially very harmful. Standing near unshielded spent ...
What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they ...

Figure 2: Categorization of Radioactive Sources.. What we learn from Fukushima. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was a series of equipment failures, nuclear meltdowns, and releases of radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, following the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. The accident at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan released about 940 PBq (iodine-131 equivalent) of radioactive material, mostly on days 4 to 6 after the tsunami. In May 2013, United Nation Scientific Commission on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) reported that "Radiation exposure following the nuclear accident at Fukushima-Daiichi did not cause any immediate health effects. It is unlikely to be able to attribute any health effects in the future among the general public and the vast majority of workers." The lessons that we should be learned from the accident at Japans Fukushima-Daichii nuclear power plant, are that emergency generators should be better protected ...
The Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011, and subsequently occurring Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident caused tremendously serious damage and left a long-lasting emotional scar on the Japanese people. In particular, the power plant accident thrust upon us the fundamental question "Who owns the information?" The people were confused at that time since many evacuees were exposed to needless radiation because the government did not disclose information immediately after the accident or since various specialists spoke about the radiation exposure from different positions. Even now, one cannot say that the government or Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has fulfilled their accountability to the Japanese people regarding the cause of the accident. Now about four years have passed since the accident. We still have 230 thousand or more evacuees (as of December 2014) and a polluted water problem. However, the accident has started to fade from many peoples memory. ...
