Sammanfattning : Nuclear energy is a carbon-free energy source alternative often considered less harmful to the environment than fossil fuels. However, accidents have shown that there are some safety concerns regarding nuclear energy that need to be assessed before it can be considered completely safe. LÄS MER
2. Development of an Environment-Accident Index : A planning tool to protect the environment in case of a chemical spill
Sammanfattning : The increasing mass and complexity of chemicals being produced and transported has resulted in more rigorous demands on both authorities as well as chemical-handling industries to assess the risks involved. The Environment-Accident Index (EAI), has been proposed as a planning tool created as an equation in which chemical properties (variables describing the chemical involved) are combined with site-specific properties (variables describing the accident site).

3. A Chemical Perspective on the Tellurium Source Term in the Context of Severe Nuclear Power Plant Accidents
Sammanfattning : In the event of a severe nuclear accident, one of the biggest concerns is the release of radioactive nuclides. Typically, the most volatile is likely to be released. One that is considered among the most volatile is tellurium. Additionally, health implications towards the public by tellurium can be by itself or the decay product iodine. LÄS MER
4. Formation, partitioning and interactions of organic iodides under severe nuclear accident conditions
Sammanfattning : During severe nuclear reactor accidents such as Chernobyl or Fukushima large amounts of radioactive iodine can be released in form of inorganic and organic iodine species into the environment. Volatile radioactive iodine species are harmful to human health when inhaled. LÄS MER
5. Tellurium Behavior and Management in the Liquid Phases in the Containment During a Severe Nuclear Reactor Accident
Sammanfattning : No industry is immune to accidents; however, the consequences and the probability are the parameters to consider when assessing the risks. When considering nuclear power, two of the highest-level accidents have occurred during the course of the commercial use of nuclear energy. LÄS MER
