yesterday was the government, the Left and The Conservative people's Party agreed to earmark 200 million. kr. a year in 2014-17 to a reserve for green technology programs and green transformation.
in Order for Denmark to be even greener and emerge as an environmentally-friendly pioneer, and it costs, but if you ask Bertel Lohmann, should the government had better set aside some funds to research into nuclear power.
For the storing of nuclear waste that has piled up over the last 50 years can provide the free energy in 5000 years. The current generation of nuclear reactors utilize only ca. 1% of the excavated uranium, while the next generation of reactors, the so-called IFR reactors, by contrast, can run for 100 years on the amount of uranium, it today requires for a year.
Read about IFR reactors here.
- This means that, for example, Sweden in the 5000 years will be able to maintain the same production of electricity from nuclear power which the country has in these years, by 'guys' with the waste from the current reactors, writes Nye, chairman of REO, who believe that nuclear energy must necessarily engage in a nuanced dialogue on energy, and that it must therefore be assessed on equal terms with other energy sources in terms of environmental and socio-economic considerations.
the Netherlands, Norway, Finland and Sweden, but not Denmark
- Not without reason, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland and Sweden in international research projects in this area. Denmark, by contrast, has decided to resign from all teaching and research in the field, saith the from a bitter Bertel, who also points out that the modern reactors are of major importance for how much - or rather how little - radioaktivtaffald, which shall be deposited after use:
- IFR reactor can utilize both uranium and transuraner in the spent fuel as the depleterede uranium. Operation of a reactor of the current generation in a year leaves 135 ton depleted uranium, plus 23 tonnes of waste, with an IFR reactor can provide the same amount of electricity (12 TWh) approx. 100 years.
- If a reactor of the current generation has been running for 50 years, so will the 'survivors' material could maintain the same electricity generation in ca. 5000 years. When the time is gone, so will the actual waste (the cleavage products; or) from the first 4000 years to be away. While man cleans up after the period of the reactors in the course of some hundred years, so will be the latest waste to decompose. Therefore there will be virtually no use for the landfill for thousands of years. This solves the waste problem, since the volume is reduced by approx. 94%, and the time horizon of the landfill shrinks from 100,000 years to less than 500 years.
But what do you say? Should Denmark spend money on researching nuclear energy?
