Is nuclear power fair for future generations?
The recent nuclear accident in Fukushima Daiichi in Japan has brought the nuclear debate to the forefront of controversy. View News Article (2011-05-06)

Kyoto climate commitments - a challenge for UK energy policy, say Academies
The report examines options for generating electricity without emission of CO2. These include using renewable sources (such as wind and solar) and negating CO2 emissions by use of 'carbon sequestration', as well as maintaining a nuclear energy capability. View News Article (1999-06-14)

Nuclear cannibals
Nuclear energy production must increase by more than 10 percent each year from 2010 to 2050 to meet all future energy demands and replace fossil fuels, but this is an unsustainable prospect. View News Article (2008-03-05)

Rebalancing the nuclear debate through education
Better physics teaching with a particular emphasis on radioactivity and radiation science could improve public awareness through education of the environmental benefits and relative safety of nuclear power generation, according to leading Brazilian scientist Heldio Villar. View News Article (2011-09-12)

Low-carbon hybrid energy systems -- China's future energy solutions
A low-carbon solution to high-carbon energy resources such as coal is proposed by their high efficient integration with either nuclear or renewable energy, which may figure out the strategic solution to China's future energy development. View News Article (2013-02-11)

Reactor of the future destroys nuclear waste--KTH to head major EU project to cut storage times dramatically
A power plant that generates energy from used nuclear waste and destroys it as well. Could this become a reality? A three-year research project involving 23 European partners coordinated by KTH is being launched to investigate the matter. In the last few years great strides have been taken in research into so-called transmutation (see footnote) of nuclear waste. Therefore, the EU is now... View News Article (2004-03-18)

Tried and true recipes
Nuclear reactor technology research dwindled away when nuclear power fell out of favor several decades ago. Renewed interest in fission-based energy means knowledge gained in past research is relevant again.  View News Article (2011-03-07)

Sustainable nuclear energy moves a step closer
In future a new generation of nuclear reactors will create energy, while producing virtually no long-lasting nuclear waste, according to research conducted by Wilfred van Rooijen, who will receive his Delft University of Technology PhD degree based on this research subject on Tuesday, 12 December. View News Article (2006-12-12)

A wasted opportunity?
British biologists are urging UK Departments of the Environment to expand a proposed two-year research programme into nuclear waste disposal in length and range to at least five years. Without knowledge of the biological and geological effects for each radioactive isotope, it will be impossible to establish best policy. In a response to Proposals for Developing Policy (submitted today to DEFRA... View News Article (2002-03-19)
