Nuclear Energy: Is there a future after Fukushima?

Liaison Functions
AIChE Annual Meeting
October 29, 2012 - 2:30pm-3:00pm
The future of the global nuclear energy industry, while certainly not without its challenges, remains vibrant. Even as the industry contends with near-record-low natural gas prices and the accident at Fukushima Daiichi, the reality is that global demand for electricity and concern over carbon emissions will ensure that nuclear energy becomes an even larger source of global electricity. In fact, as a result of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the passive safety design of the Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plant is making it an even more popular choice in the global new plant market. Additionally, Westinghouse is working on next-generation nuclear technology that extends the benefits of the AP1000.
