  • India's Nuclear Fuel Cycleby Taraknath V. K. Woddi; William S. Charlton; Paul Nelson

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2009; US$ 30.00

    An analysis of the current (February 2009) status and future potential of India's nuclear fuel cycle is presented in this book. Such a fuel cycle assessment is important, but relatively opaque because India regards various aspects of its nuclear fuel cycle as strategically sensitive. Any study therefore necessarily depends upon reverse calculations... more...
