Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
Bob Audette reports that the five-member board that oversees the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Tuesday voted to end a two-year moratorium on issuing new power plant licenses. The moratorium was in response to a June 2012 decision issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that ordered the NRC to consider the possibility that the federal government may never take possession of the nearly 70,000 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel stored at power plant sites scattered around the country. In addition to lifting the moratorium, the five-member board also approved guidance re... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Ben Adler reports that in March 2007, the E.U. adopted climate and energy goals for 2010 to 2020. The 27 member countries set a goal of reducing carbon emissions 20 percent by 2020 and increasing renewables to 20 percent of their energy portfolio. Unfortunately, they underestimated the carbon intensity of burning wood - a.k.a. biomass - for electricity, and they categorized wood as a renewable fuel.

The result is that E.U. countries with smaller renewable sectors turned to wood to replace coal. Governments provided incentives for energy utilities to make that switch. Now, with a bun... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Dr. Conca reports that we have been hearing that the Earth is not really heating since the mean global surface temperatures have been almost flat for the last 17 years. But there is no hiatus, no lull, and no reverse in global warming the Earth is just warming in different ways. Indeed, there is more than one way to heat a planet.

As a geologist, this is no surprise given the complexity of planetary heat transfer and other global processes. Some areas get colder, some hotter, some drier, some even get more snow as the winters get warmer. The average temperature of the lower atmosphe... More →

Index / Coal / Graphite, Graphene, and Carbon Uses
Dave Smith reports that the extraordinary features and benefits of graphene make it sound like it was taken out of a comic book, e.g., adamantium, vibranium, but while the super material could change our world as we know it, graphene must overcome several obstacles related to viability before it is ready for mass usage.

Using graphene is a complicated technology to deliver. The race to find value is more of a marathon than a sprint.

It may be awhile until graphene is readily available to the public - the material was finally isolated only a decade ago - but scientific... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Economics - Nuclear Power
Poland will reduce dependence on brown and black coal by introducing nuclear power and renewables, according a draft energy policy to 2050 released for consultation. The Polish government put forward two main scenarios for future energy supply. Both see nuclear power introduced in 2020 and expanding to become an important element of the energy sector after 2025, along with renewable sources.

One forecast has nuclear power producing 50 TWh per year from 2035 - in line with the government ambition to build two nuclear power plants with capacity of 3,000 MWe each. At the same time, ren... More →

Vanessa Mock reports that closure of three nuclear power plants in Belgium leaves government fearing winter energy crunch. Belgian authorities are racing to map out emergency plans in case of a severe energy crunch this winter. The country could face energy shortfalls in the depths of winter after the sudden closure of three major nuclear power plants over the past months.

Two nuclear reactors, Doel 3 and Tihange 2, were closed in May after cracks appeared in the steel reactor casings, and another large plant, Doel 4, closed down on August 5 last year.

The U.S. Department of Energy - DOE - has announced nearly 67 million dollars in nuclear energy research and infrastructure enhancement awards. 83 projects were selected from across the country based on their potential to create scientific breakthroughs that both help strengthen the energy security and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The support for cutting-edge nuclear science and engineering across our universities, national laboratories, and industry reflects the key role of nuclear energy in helping ensure a low-carbon future, said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. These awards not o... More →

Index / Health & Safety
Howard J. Gordon, CPG-07190 indicated that the first sentence of the American Geological Institute 1992 book,Planning for Field Safety, states that safe fieldwork is no accident. In the world of safety professionals, there are no such things as accidents, just unsafe acts and unsafe conditions or a combination of the two. In the November-December issue of The Professional Geologist - TPG, an article by N. Price, How Safe is Fieldwork discussed the tragic death of Alyssa Heberton-Morimoto at the hands of a now-convicted murderer. He was sentenced to life in prison. The article presented well th...

Betsy Blaney reports that depleted uranium from federal energy facilities can be buried at a nuclear-waste dumping site in West Texas, state regulators decided Wednesday. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality also will triple the Dallas-based Waste Control Specialists facility capacity of storing low-level radioactive waste from the majority of U.S. states going from 2.3 million cubic feet to 9 million cubic feet.

The first of two containers with low-level radioactive waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico were loaded into a reinforced 8-inch-thick concrete ... More →

David Conti reports that Westinghouse Electric Co. has an inside track on providing two of its new reactors for a proposed nuclear power plant in Utah. The Cranberry company and Orem, Utah-based developer Blue Castle Holdings on Wednesday announced they will exclusively negotiate a deal to partner on the project. Blue Castle wants to use the Westinghouse AP1000 reactors and potentially a modified version for earthquake-prone areas in its applications for permits and licenses to build at the Green River site. The project has won several regulatory battles but is four or five years from receivin... More →
