    Abstract: Dynamic developing of modern nuclear industry demands meeting the following requirements: improved safety, reduced capital costs, radioactive waste (RW) management issues, independence of limited resources. Efficiency of uranium resources used in "BREST" reactors based on a closed fuel cycle is about 160 times higher than for VVER, RBMK reactors [1... Show More

    Abstract: Water is the most essential element for hydropower energy production. However, it has been well established that climate change will negatively globally impact water resources and in Sub-Saharan Africa particularly. It is therefore important to take this into account when assessing the potential hydropower energy of rivers to avoid overestimating t... Show More
