Carbon Emission Reduction Protocol to Play an Important Role in Nuclear Policies Formulation
Hyderabad, AP, India ( 15/12/2010
The need to reduce carbon emissions as stipulated by the recent energy conventions and protocols has forced many countries to opt for cleaner technology for power generation. Nuclear energy is one of the beneficiaries of the Kyoto protocol. The pressing need to reduce the carbon emission has made countries to strengthen their nuclear programs and formulate policies which favor the development of nuclear programs.

Nuclear Industry has suffered from the infamous Chernobyl and Three Mile Incident. Nuclear energy was considered as unsafe after the incidents. Also the radioactive waste of the nuclear fuel was considered as hazardous. The improved measures in disposing the nuclear fuel waste through the direct disposal and the nuclear fuel reprocessing has helped nuclear energy in getting many supporters. The careful handling of the nuclear waste and the strict regulations for managing the radioactive waste has helped nuclear power to be considered as a safe and clean power.

Most of the countries either use large repository or reprocess the fuel as a mean to dispose the nuclear waste. The following table shows the list of different countries and their ways for disposing the radioactive waste.

In its early years, nuclear was considered dangerous due to the havoc it created in World War II. The nuclear energy was used to generate power, but the nuclear accidents aggravated the danger associated with the nuclear power. The use of nuclear energy for military purposes challenged the advantages associated with it. The nuclear non proliferation by almost all the countries has helped in using nuclear energy in a better and peaceful way.

The nuclear energy is used in transport application, in medicines and in industries as radioisotopes, in space exploration programs, in nuclear desalination, in nuclear heat process and in other research programs.

GBI Research, the leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research, “Nuclear Regulatory Frameworks- Fuel Processing and Waste Disposal Policies Critical for Industry Growth”, that provides an insight into the nuclear regulatory frameworks of the major nuclear power countries of the world. The study, which is an offering from the company’s Energy Research Group, provides information about the major nuclear agencies and associations across the world, major nuclear treaties and protocols and comparison between different countries on the basis of selected parameters which define the presence of nuclear power in a country. The research also provides the nuclear policy, regulatory frameworks, key nuclear policies and regulations and also the major nuclear affiliations for major nuclear power generating countries in each of the five geographic regions. The report is built using the data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.
