The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

The whole nuclear fuel chain is fraught with danger

Grist 11th April 2018 , When it comes to nuclear power, the risks appear right from the beginning
of the process with uranium mining. And they continue to pop up throughout
the nuclear life cycle, from enrichment and reactor operation to the
radioactive waste at the end. It’s a process fraught with hazards. After
uranium ore is milled into yellow cake, it goes through an enrichment
process where centrifuges spin uranium to transform it into nuclear fuel.
Keep that fuel spinning longer, and it eventually turns into the stuff that
can level cities.
