By 2050, the world's population is expected to reach 10 billion. In the same time, industrial activity will increase by at least three times. Whether considering the use of hydrogen fuel cells or continuing with current energy techniques, nuclear power is the only sustainable energy option available for large-scale development to help meet future energy needs with minimal affect to the environment. This realization has sparked renewed interested in this method of energy generation. "Sustainable Nuclear Power" addresses the safety and disposal issues that have plagued the development of the nuclear power industry for almost two decades and evaluates modern advances. This book brings together the experience of two active and experienced engineers to present the technical side of nuclear power as a safe, abundant, and sustainable energy source which should be utilized to fulfill our energy needs. * Explores the origins of nuclear power in relation to sustainability * Provides easy access to concise comparisons of traditional and contemporary energy options * Presents alternative solutions to the reliance on imported petroleum
