  • Understanding the True Cost of Water

    Overcoming Barriers to Corporate Water Stewardship For companies pursuing corporate water stewardship strategies, a common barrier to action is the perceived low cost of water “at the tap.” Water reduction, reuse, and recycling projects often do not meet investment hurdle rates or compare positively to other investments. This also acts to limit community and watershed ...

  • Reduction in water losses in water distribution systems using pressure reduction valves

    Water loss is a phenomenon frequently observed within water distribution systems (WDSs), that is considerably worsened by an excessive pressure throughout the network. As an alternative option to pipe replacement, the use of pumps working as turbines, throttle control valves (TCVs), or pressure reduction valves (PRVs) can be used to reduce leakage. For a preassigned number of these devices, ...

  • The cost benefit of a light water reactor safety study in JAERI

    A cost benefit effect of nuclear energy is studied in this paper, where the reduction of Nuclear Accident Compensation Insurance (NACI) by reducing the accident risk of LWR and the contribution of the JAEA LWR safety study to NACI are main parameters. It is revealed that the reduced amounts by NACI was 240 million dollars (M$), omitting the contributions from research reactors. This value is ...
