BBA emergency pump units for a nuclear power plant

by BBA Pumps  (Feb. 26, 2015)

Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, safety regulations at many nuclear plants have been considerably tightened, this has led to an increased demand for fire fighting pump systems. These systems must comply with extremely strict requirements and regulations. Working closely together with the Belgian distributor Rental Pumps, BBA Pumps ...

Disinfection of an advanced primary effluent using peracetic acid or ultraviolet radiation for its reuse in public services

by IWA Publishing  (Feb. 27, 2015)

The disinfection of a continuous flow of an effluent from an advanced primary treatment (coagulation-flocculation-sedimentation) with or without posterior filtration, using either peracetic acid (PAA) or ultraviolet (UV) radiation was studied. We aimed to obtain bacteriological quality to comply with the microbiological standard established in ...

Interaction of microwave radiation with composites containing nanosized hexaferrite, multiferroics, carbon nanostructures and silicon binder

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 2, 2015)

A new composite consisting of nanosized powders of hexaferrites BaFe12O19 (BaM), multiferroics Co1.6Zn1.4W+CaTiO3 (30%), carbon nanostructures (powder mixture of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, squamous structures and ...

Last tango for nuclear?

by Ensia  (Jan. 30, 2015)

The U.S. nuclear power industry’s three-step: Revival, long goodbye or state-aided life support. As pressure to reduce climate-changing emissions grows, nuclear power is drawing growing attention — for better or worse. In this piece, the first of a series of three being published at Environmental Health News with funding ...

Nuclear waste storage and environmental intergenerational externalities

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jan. 7, 2015)

This article analyses the long–term consequences of nuclear waste storage within a general equilibrium framework. The objective is to determine the conditions for which the storage of waste, and thus the transfer of externalities towards the future, can be optimal. These conditions could explain the implementation of intergenerational ...

Effect of the radiation heat loss on propagation of the spherical flame through premixed coal dust

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 16, 2014)

An analytical study has been conducted to investigate the effect of radiation heat loss on the spherical flame propagation in coal–dust clouds. This research can be valuable in the development of alternative fuels; and it can be used by the fire safety and control industry. The model includes the evaporation of the volatile matter of dust ...

Nuclear–powered unmanned aerial vehicles for science, industry and telecommunications

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 1, 2014)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) suffer from limitations on flight persistence and on electrical power for avionics and payload systems. Both limitations may be effectively lifted by the use of an on–board nuclear engine, which will open up the horizon for further UAV applications in science and industry. Nuclear–powered UAVs were studied in the ...

Sovereignty of states, peaceful nuclear energy and principles of international environmental law

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 1, 2014)

The sovereign right of states to peaceful nuclear energy is analysed on the basis of principles of international environmental law. The exercise of this right depends on the implementation of certain obligations under international law. The notion of sovereignty as independence and superiority does not serve the challenges of peaceful nuclear ...

Nuclear energy strategies in the UK and Finland: a critical evaluation on current and future prospective

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 1, 2014)

Nuclear strategies of the UK and Finland are a widely debated area. With power plants, both fossil fuelled and nuclear powered, in the two countries about to expire, now is the time to make decisions to take their energy security and supply well into the forthcoming century. With this in mind, policies have been made within the European Union to ...

Comparison of monitoring programmes of ultimate disposal facilities for radioactive waste and carbon dioxide

by Inderscience Publishers  (Oct. 29, 2014)

Reliable and cost–effective monitoring is an important part of making geological repositories safe, effective, and acceptable for radioactive waste disposal and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. The major objectives of monitoring should include the evolution of disposal systems compared to the baseline data of the undisturbed site, as well as the ...
