Jeffrey Mahn, nuclear engineer: This presentation addresses Nuclear Reactor Safety. All energy forms have upsides and downsides - nuclear energy is no exception. Upside, enormous amount of energy produced by U-235 fission - ~1.5 million times more energy per gram of fuel than hydrocarbon fuels. Downside, energy from decay of radioactive fission products continues to produce heat, which must be removed.

M.N.H. Comsan - Worldwide, in 2007, there are 439 operating nuclear reactors working in 31 countries with 361 GWe installed power representing ~17% of world demand on electricity. Most of these reactors were designed and developed during the 1960s. For almost five decades, the nuclear power industry has been developing and improving nuclear design and technology towards safer and more reliable operation. With the increase of world demand on energy, 136 new reactors are needed just to maintain the nuclear energy share at the same level by 2025.
