Nuclear Science and Technology Benefits and
Information
  • There are 103 commercial nuclear power plants
    producing electricity in the United States.
  • Worldwide, 31 countries are operating 431
    nuclear plants for electricity generation. In 10
    countries, 29 new nuclear plants are under
    construction.
  • Today, nuclear power plants are second largest
    source of electricity in the United States,
    supplying 20 of the nations electricity each
    year.
  • The average electricity production cost in 1999
    for nuclear energy was 1.83 per kW-hour, for
    coal fired plants 2.07, for oil 3.24, and for
    gas 3.52.

Nuclear Science and Technology Benefits and
Information
  • Lowest impact on the environment of all energy
    sources
  • Emission Free
  • Ranked among the safest places to work
  • More than 28, 000 American doctors practice
    medical specialties that use radiation.
  • Irradiation kills bacteria, parasites and
    insects in food - including listeria, salmonella
    and potentially deadly E. coli - retards
    non-microbial spoilage of certain foods,
    increasing their shelf life.

Nuclear Science and Technology Benefits and
Information
  • Radiation is also used in various industrial
    applications including
  • Sterilize baby powder, bandages, contact lens
    solution and many cosmetics.
  • The automobile industry uses radioactive
    materials to test the quality of steel in cars
    and to prevents the plastic of your car dash from
    cracking.
  • Aircraft manufactures use radiation to check for
    flaws in jet engines.
