  An MIT study finds that unless nuclear energy is meaningfully incorporated into the global mix of low-carbon energy technologies, the challenge of climate change will be much more difficult and costly to solve. "The Future of Nuclear Energy in a Carbon-Constrained World," released by the MIT Energy Initiative, discusses measures that could be taken to increase the use of nuclear .   Introduction – plant safety assessment in a plant life management (PLiM) framework. According to IAEA (a), the aim of a nuclear power plant (NPP) safety assessment should be to establish and confirm the design basis for the items important to safety and to ensure that the overall plant design is capable of meeting the prescribed and .

  Decommissioning is what happens after a nuclear power plant has served its effective life. WHAT IS IT? Decommissioning is the process of permanently and safely closing and dismantling a nuclear power plant. This generally falls into one of two categories: DECON or SAFSTOR. Their costs are similar and each has its benefits and challenges. The successful decommissioning of nuclear power plants demonstrates responsible management of a nuclear power plant's complete life cycle. Applying the lessons learned and experiences of previous decommissioning projects will allow current and future nuclear power plants to plan and execute successful decommissioning.

  The generation of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste is an unavoidable consequence of nuclear power production. Some of this material needs to be handled with great care and be disposed of, either near the surface for short-lived waste (a few hundred years) or at depth (– m) in geological formations for long-lived and high-level waste. Broadly speaking, life cycle management is the process by which nuclear power plants integrate operations, maintenance, engineering, regulatory, environmental, and business activities that (1) manage plant condition (equipment reliability, aging, and obsolescence), (2) optimize operating life (including the options of early.

As experience has shown, the individual process steps extend over a period of. This publication provides guidance on how to comply with requirements for the safe decommissioning of nuclear power plants, research reactors, and other nuclear fuel cycle facilities.

A licensed nuclear facility or activity, for example, is required to keep records important to the safe and effective decommissioning for some time after the licence has been terminated by the regulator.

Information management and preservation is a necessary component of the decommissioning process. Construction and commissioning of nuclear power plants Decommissioning of nuclear installations A nuclear power plant must be managed in a safe and efficient manner throughout its entire life cycle, from design through decommissioning, with the overall goal of providing reliable and affordable electricity.

Newer plants are designed for a 40 to 60 year operating life. At the end of the life of any power plant, it needs to be decommissioned, cleaned up and demolished so that the site is made available for other uses. For nuclear plants, the term decommissioning includes all clean-up of radioactivity and progressive dismantling of the plant.

This book critically reviews the nuclear decommissioning processes and technologies applicable to nuclear power plants and other civilian nuclear facilities. Part one focuses on the fundamental planning issues in starting a nuclear decommissioning process, from principles and safety regulations, to financing and project s: 2.

Safe Decommissioning of Civil Nuclear Industry Sites for decommissioning can be accumulated through a very modest incremental addition to the price of electricity from nuclear power plants or nuclear fuel-cycle services.

Accruing the resources sufficient to achieve sound decommissioning is a recognized responsibility of the site owner. The size of the nuclear decommissioning industry is huge.

The number of nuclear power plants worldwide exceeds units with some still remaining in operation, and well over already shut down and bound for dismantling within the next few decades. After the closure of a nuclear power plant, the plant owner is accountable for reducing the site’s residual radioactivity to safe levels.

The site must be decommissioned within 60 years of the plant closure. The decommissioning process involves: removing the used nuclear fuel from the reactor.

Vienna International Centre, PO Box A Vienna, Austria Telephone: +43 (1)Facsimile +43 (1)   This chapter deals with the nuclear fuel cycle and briefly reviews all its phases. Nuclear power plants are then considered through their lifecycle and the development of new power plants is examined from the time of decision to embark on a nuclear programme to the decommissioning phase.
