Abstract
“Growing concerns over climate change have highlighted the need to step up contribution of nuclear energy in the energy mix and to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels in the years to come. This essay discusses some of the major advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy.”

Introduction
Nuclear energy represents only 15% of the electricity produced worldwide. Though in France, 80% of its electricity production is from nuclear energy and more than one-fourth of electricity in Europe comes from nuclear energy. Nuclear energy represents a very small percentage in many countries’ total electricity production, but this percentage is likely to go up in the coming years. Nuclear power is generated using Uranium, a mineral of which one of the isotopes, U- 234 is unstable. The nucleus breaks down resulting in the emission of heat and radiation followed by a chain reaction. This is called nuclear fission and this process liberates a large amount of energy, but the process also releases radiation which is very dangerous.

    One Nuclear power plant on average take up approximate 3-4 square Kilometers. (1mile =2.2kilometers) The plant is not that big, but most are required to have an "exclusion zone". The exact size of the zone varies from site to site, but is usually around 1km. So a kilometer in all directions. The plant itself is no bigger than a large warehouse.

    Clean Energy
    Nuclear energy has the ability to produce electricity without greenhouse gas emissions. It produces electricity without pollution. It is cleaner than many other forms of energy production. Essentially, nuclear power would be “carbon-zero” if the uranium were mined and transported in a more efficient way.

    This case study assignment is about Japan fukushima nuclear power plant disaster on 11th march 2011 which is a the largest nuclear disaster since Chernobyl disaster of 1986. From this case studies the awarenes in safety factors are the priority in industral management and manufacturing. It is also improving a knowledge in handling, managing, preventive, maintaining the safety factors and handling any crisis on a industrial management.

    Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear disaster on March 11th which is happened due to earthquake and following by tsunami at Japan. This Nuclear disaster which release radioactive materials due to nuclear meltdown caused by equipment failures at Fukushima nuclear power plant.

    Below you will find a nuclear energy pros and cons list, which covers the most important aspects of typical nuclear power plants.

    There are 104 commercial nuclear power plants in the United States producing a whopping 806.2 TWh of electricity, in other words about 20 % of the entire electricity generation (2008). There is no doubt that the potential of nuclear energy is huge, but there are also downsides.

    Australia is way ahead of the rest of us, by banning nuclear in their country and surrounding areas, my friend.

    A reactor is refueled every 6 months. The fuel never leaves the site. The new reactors they are proposing to build refuels every 20 years. Over all nuclear energy is safe as long as the plant is well maintained. The plant I worked in was very well maintained and the cleanest place I have ever been in.

    Any undesirable effect caused to the environment due to radioactive substances or radiations is called nuclear pollution. Major source is the Nuclear power plants. If traces of the radioactive substances are present in the water that is released from the plant, it will cause nuclear pollution. Emission of radiations can also cause this kind of pollution.

    It affects almost all life forms in the surrounding environment. From planktons to Human beings nothing is spared. To be more specific, the radiations can cause mutations that lead to cancer, and the dose of radiation or the level of pollution determines lethality or how deadly it is.

    Nuclear Power is best. I think we should continue to use nuclear power because it is much cleaner, it causes much less deaths AND prevents more deaths than fossil fuels.
