GHG emissions (g CO2 equivalent / kWh)

25.1 — Extract, enrich and deliver fuel

8.2 — Plant construction

11.6 — Plant operation

9.2 — Spent fuel conditioning and storage

12.0 — Deconstruct plant and reclaim land

Since a typical NPP puts out 1000 MW, multiply the above by 1 million to get grams CO2 equivalent for each hour of operation.
