• Common Myths About Nuclear Power, Debunked

    Common Myths About Nuclear Power, DebunkedOverall, a slim majority of Americans — 51% — favor the use of nuclear energy for domestic electrical use, while 43% oppose it. No doubt this is thanks in part to the many myths floating around about the use of nuclear power. In order to prevent any misconceptions that might be preventing the U.S. from investing in energy, here are some common myths that surround nuclear power and nuclear investment.

    Myth: Americans are constantly surrounded by nuclear energy and radiation given off from nuclear power plants.
    This is false. While Americans are constantly surrounded by natural occurring radiation, only 0.005% is due to nuclear power. This number is roughly 100 times less than what we’re exposed to from coal, 200 times less than a cross country flight, and about the same as eating one banana a year. All in all, nuclear power plants pose very little threat to the American people, especially when compared to other energy sources.

    Myth: Nuclear power causes global warming and climate change.
    Untrue! In fact, if we take away the barriers to investing in energy, nuclear power could drastically reduce emissions from power plants. That’s because nuclear power plants do not emit any greenhouse gases during operation. Plus, nuclear power plants require less land use than solar and wind power sources.

    Myth: A nuclear reactor can explode like a nuclear bomb.
    It is impossible for a nuclear plant to explode like the nuclear bombs used in war. This is because those weapons contain specialized, advanced materials that have been configured by a nuclear scientist to be harmful. None of these materials are present in a nuclear reactor. Plus, it is important to note that the nuclear reactors that exploded in Chernobyl have never been manufactured outside of the Soviet Union, so this threat is not relevant to our nation.

    Myth: Nuclear waste cannot be recycled.
    Many believe that the waste produced from nuclear reactors cannot be recycled, so it will end up in our atmosphere. This is untrue, and fully 96% of all nuclear waste is reused and/or recycled.

    Myth: Investing in energy companies is a waste of time.
    Actually, many experts believe that the future belongs to nuclear power. More and more Americans are noticing the benefits that come with nuclear energy investment as an emerging field in the stock market.

  • US Dept of Energy to Sell Depleted Uranium for Enriching Nuclear Power

    nuclear investmentThe U.S. Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office announced in December of 2014 that it opened a $12.6 billion loan guarantee for advanced nuclear technologies. This includes small modular reactors, molten salt reactors, and breeder reactors.

    It also looks as if the agency is putting that money towards uranium as well. In a recent announcement, the Department of Energy has agreed to sell depleted uranium to GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment, LLC (GLE) over a 40 year period. The facility would then use this depleted uranium to produce natural uranium, the element that is used in the production of fuel for civil nuclear reactors.

    The $1 billion facility would be built near the Department of Energy’s DOE’s Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant in western Kentucky and is slated to bring between 800 and 1,200 jobs to the area.

    GLE will construct, finance, and operate the existing Paducah Laser Enrichment Facility, which is adjacent to the Gaseous Diffusion Plant. Under a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the facility will serve as a commercial uranium enrichment production plant. As of right now, the uranium in question is safely stored in 65,000 specialized storage units at the Department’s Paducah location and Portsmouth, Ohio site.

    “This agreement furthers the Energy Department’s environmental cleanup mission while reducing cleanup costs, creating good local jobs, and supporting an economical enrichment enterprise for our energy needs,” said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. “The sale contributes to two key Energy Department mission areas – to fulfill the federal government’s responsibility to manage the safe storage and disposal of nuclear materials and to enable nuclear power, America’s largest source of zero-carbon energy and an important enabler for reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”

    The Paducah plant was built in the 1950s in order to enrich uranium for national security applications and was later used to enrich uranium for nuclear power generation. The Department of Energy took over the plant enrichment facilities in 2014.

    This trade deal is especially beneficial for those interested in nuclear investment. Considering the fact that the government planned a deal that’s set to last 40 years means that they only envision nuclear energy to grow. This means investing in nuclear energy stocks, power plant investment, and nuclear investment as a whole will only reap many benefits in the future.
