  • Nuclear Production of Hydrogenby Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 56.00

    Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable source of energy in the 21st century. Present methods for producing hydrogen are mainly based on the reforming of fossil fuels with subsequent release of greenhouse gases. more...

  • Nuclear Production of Hydrogenby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006; US$ 112.00

    Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable energy carrier in the 21st century. Since natural sources of pure hydrogen are extremely limited, it is necessary to develop technologies to produce large quantities of hydrogen economically. The currently dominant technology for producing hydrogen... more...

  • Regulatory Reviews of Assessments of Deep Geologic Repositoriesby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 56.00

    Integrated performance assessments (IPAs) of radioactive waste repositories deep underground are made at different stages of repository development in order, for example, to allow full-scale development, to provide feedback to R&D, and to test and develop review capability. IPA studies must be acceptable to a wide range of stakeholders and are one... more...

  • Methodologies for Assessing the Economic Consequences of Nuclear Reactor Accidentsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 54.00

    For practical reasons, the consequences of nuclear reactor accidents are often measured in economic terms. Figures currently available, however, show significant discrepancies. For this reason, the NEA created an expert group to investigate the methodologies used in calculating the economic consequences of accidents, and the bases for such methodologies.... more...

  • Core Monitoring for Commercial Reactorsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 123.00

    The opening of energy markets is leading to increased competition, and the nuclear power industry must adapt if it is to meet this challenge. Internationally discussions are taking place among government authorities and electric utilities and vendors on how to deal with the rapid technical development and optimisation of nuclear fuel and its utilisation... more...

  • Nuclear Reactor Safetyby F Farmer

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Nuclear Reactor Safety aims to put the nuclear hazard in perspective by providing an objective overall technical review of the field. It focuses on reactor accidents and their consequences. The technical arguments will be concerned broadly with reactor accident conditions and will deal with both the arrangements necessary to prevent any dangerous diversion... more...

  • Nuclear Energy Synergeticsby A. A. Harms; M. Heindler

    Springer US 2012; US$ 122.30

    This book is intended as an introductory exposition of those nuclear energy systems concepts which are characterized by an integrated utiliz­ ation of complementary nuclear processes. Basic to such systems is the notion of synergism, which herein implies the cooperative interaction of selected nuclear reactions and system components so as to provide... more...

  • The Chemistry of Fusion Technologyby D. Gruen

    Springer US 2012; US$ 94.17

    Nuclear energy obtained from thermonuclear fusion of light nuclei is a goal to which an increasing world-wide effort is being committed. The demands on energy reserves and resources are continually increasing as ever more coun­ tries achieve modern industrial status. All projections agree that conventional means of energy production must be supplemented... more...
