  1. Nuclear Renaissance: A Flawed Proposition

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Nuclear power has never been safe and it never will be. Efficiency gains and investment in renewable sources of energy will be sufficient to power the planet without resorting to nuclear reactors.

  2. Nuclear Waste Policy in the United States

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    The current U.S. reactor fleet produces 2,100–2,400 ton/yr of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). After 50-plus years of nuclear power generation, 64,000 tons of SNF has accumulated in temporary storage at the reactor sites. How did we get where we are, and where do we go from here?

  3. Nuclear Power: Energy to Produce Liquid Fuels and Chemicals

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Using nuclear energy to operate refineries and chemical plants would allow more fossil and biomass resources to be converted to fuel and chemical products.

  4. Nuclear Power: Fueling the Hydrogen Economy

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Nuclear hydrogen might first enter the transportation market to supplement existing fossil resources. In the long-term, it could be a key in the development of a hydrogen economy.

  5. Developing a Position on Nuclear Power

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    AIChE’s Nuclear Engineering Division recommends expanding the role of nuclear power and closing the nuclear fuel cycle. <br>

  6. Energy Research: Following the Money

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Surveys of the energy-related papers presented at AIChE’s annual meetings shed light on the funding pathways for energy research by chemical engineers.

  7. Use Oxygen to Improve Combustion and Oxidation

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Substituting oxygen for air is often a low-cost, easy-to-implement option that can reduce capital costs, lower emissions, and improve process flexibility and reliability.

  8. Choosing Specialty Metals for Corrosion-Sensitive Equipment

    CEP Magazine article, July 2010

    Specialty metals should be considered for processes that push beyond the corrosion limits of steel. New composites and surface alloy technologies expand the options for defending against corrosion.

  9. Will IST Stall CFATS Reauthorization?

    CEP Magazine article, August 2010

    Debate over the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards continues to revolve around whether manufacturers and processors will be required to incorporate inherently safer technology into their security plans.

  10. Understanding Process Safety Management

    CEP Magazine article, August 2010

    A structured risk-based approach defines the pathways to successful implementation of process safety management objectives
