  • Nuclear Power May Prevent More Deaths Than It Causes Read more

    Using nuclear power in place of fossil-fuel energy sources, such as coal, has prevented some 1.8 million air-pollution-related deaths and 64 gigatons of carbon emissions globally over the past four decades, a study concludes. These estimates suggest policymakers should continue to rely on and expand nuclear power in place of fossil fuels to mitigate climate change, the authors say (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI:10.1021/es3051197). Read more

  • High-performance polymer coating can be spray-applied Read more

    Victrex is introducing a new, cost-effective flame spray process for applying its Vicote coatings to metal and ceramic substrates. Historically, thermal (flame) spray technology has been limited to the application of metal alloys, cermets and some low-performance polymers to form a protective coating on the substrate, but all of these coatings have performance limitations despite continued research to develop the process for high-performance polymers.

  • Nuclear Power has more advantages than disadvantages Read more

    By a study it has been concluded that by using nuclear power instead of fossil-fuel energy sources has prevented some 1.8 million deaths related to air pollution globally. It also says that nuclear energy prevents emissions of huge quantities of green house gases. (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI: 10.1021/es3051197). Working with Goddard’s James E. Hansen, Kharecha set out to explore the benefits of nuclear power. The pair specifically wanted to look at nuclear power’s advantages over fossil fuels in terms of reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Read more
