2022-06-20 Nuscale SMR – Engineering With Rosie

Nuscale SMR video from engineering with Rosie Rosie said, “The amount of land needed for nuclear is small compared to wind and solar…” This is a false and unfair assertion. In the US the nuclear power plants are surrounded by an exclusion zone where there cannot be any population, and this is a large area.

2022-06-17 SMRs Are Not A Feasible Choice

SMRs Not! A very detailed assessment of the reasons why SMRs – small modular reactors – are not a feasible choice. Quote: << Small modular reactors won’t achieve economies of manufacturing scale, won’t be faster to construct, forego efficiency of vertical scaling, won’t be cheaper, aren’t suitable for remote or brownfield coal sites, still face

2022-06-05 SMRs – Small Modular Reactors Make 5X Radioactive Waste

Small modular reactors produce 5 or more times the radioactive waste that full sized reactors produce. https://www.theenergymix.com/2022/06/03/small-modular-nukes-produce-more-radioactive-waste-than-traditional-ones-study-finds/ Quote: ” << Stanford University’s Lindsay Krall, who led the research, said information from the industry is “promotional”, echoing past criticisms that SMRs are still “PowerPoint reactors” with no detailed engineering to back up the concept. “SMR performed
