Pancras, T., et al., report that Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) and Fluoroprotein (FP) or Film Forming Fluoroprotein Foam (FFFP) foam have been used since the 1960s and 1970s, respectively, for the suppression of class B (flammable liquid) fires at airports, refineries and other major petroleum facilities. In recent years, however, the use of these has been challenged due to concern that certain poly and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) used in their formulation exhibit PBT characteristics (Persistent, Bioaccumulative and Toxic).

While alternative PFAS-free foams are now commerc... More →

Michael Echols reports that a continuously growing architecture of networks, systems, and assets creates unseen ties between each of us. While these digital connections enable faster communication and innovation to power our economy, they create new vulnerabilities that are a liability for companies and organizations. It is no longer sufficient to secure the systems inside our networks and feel safe. The threat may emerge through partners in external organizations or systems that we think we know.

In 2014, Target had its information systems breached by hackers who used network crede... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

The Akron Beacon Journal editorial board opine that that is the cost customers would pay to keep the Perry and Davis-Besse nuclear power plants in operation under a proposal put forward by FirstEnergy. To be sure, the Akron-based power company would benefit from the additional revenue. What Gov. John Kasich and Ohio lawmakers would do well to heed are the benefits to the state as a whole.
They clearly exceed costs.

Unfortunately, too many at the Statehouse appear inclined to see the matter without the required urgency or eye on the long run. It is disappointing to see many envi... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Geospatial Information

Joseph S. Duval, et al., (U.S. Geological Survey) report that naturally occurring radioactive isotopes can be found in most rocks and soils. The most abundant of these are potassium (K40), uranium (U238), and thorium (Th232). The radioactive decay of these elements results in the emission of gamma-rays of sufficient intensity that they can be measured using instruments in aircraft flying close to the ground. The measurement technique is known as airborne gamma-ray spectrometry (AGRS) and quantitative methods were developed 30 years ago that allow data to be expressed in terms of element concen... More →

The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) is a unique forum where the governments of 30 democracies work together to address the economic, social and environmental challenges of globalization.

The OECD is also at the forefront of efforts to understand and to help governments
respond to new developments and concerns, such as corporate governance, the
information economy and the challenges of an ageing population. The Organisation
provides a setting where governments can compare policy experiences, seek answers to
common problems, identify g... More →

Karla Lant reports that physicists at the University of Houston have discovered a low-cost, efficient, and easily available catalyst that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The catalyst is far more efficient than other options that have previously been employed, and because it is grown from ferrous metaphosphate on a conductive nickel foam platform, it is both more durable and cheaper to produce than other methods.

Cost-wise, it is much lower and performance-wise, much better, lead author and Anderson professor of physics Zhifeng Ren, M.D. told the University of Houston News.... More →

Mike Williams reports that researchers at Rice University and Kazan Federal University in Russia have found a way to extract radioactivity from water and said their discovery could help purify the hundreds of millions of gallons of contaminated water stored after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident (Fact Check: This was an incident caused by the 2011 tsunami, which caused damage to the reactors. No one was killed or irradiated).

They reported that their oxidatively modified carbon (OMC) material is inexpensive and highly efficient at absorbing radioactive metal cations, including c... More →
