Sustainable Nuclear Power book cover

Sustainable Nuclear Power

Sustainable Nuclear Power provides non-nuclear engineers, scientists and energy planners with the necessary information to understand and utilize the major advances in the field. The book demonstrates that nuclear fission technology has the abundance and attainability to provide centuries of safe power with minimal greenhouse gas generation. It also addresses the safety and disposal issues that have plagued the development of the nuclear power industry and scared planners and policy makers as well as the general public for more than two decades. In addition, the authors provide a Companion website, http://books.elsevier.com/companions, which gives access to government reports and case studies

Audience
Engineers and scientists who have not had training in nuclear engineering; administrators and legislatures seeking to understand the potential for nuclear power; engineering students
