US Nuclear Disaster Could Be Worse than Fukushima, Experts Warn via News wire

The authorities are underestimating the risk posed by old nuclear plants in the United States and ignoring the safety watchdog data.

(Newswire.net — May 29, 2017) — The US has been underestimating the safety risk from its nuclear facilities that could lead to a  worse accident than the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Science Daily reports.

According to a new study, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NCR) is ignoring the facts indicating that a single incident can lead to a major disaster.

In a study published on May 26 in the Science magazine, researchers from Princeton University and the Union of Concerned Scientists warned that nuclear spent fuel fire at one site can lead to “trillion-dollar consequences” and terrific scenarios worse than those caused by the explosion and the leakage of radioactive water from reactors at Fukushima, which was the biggest nuclear disaster of this century so far.

Hypothetically, fire would contaminate an area larger than New Jersey and force mass relocations, according to the study.

The researchers simulated a scenario according to which spilled fuel catches fire at Peach Bottom nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania, causing a domino effect and the relocation of some eight million people, while also inducing $2 trillion in damages.

[…]

The researchers proposed that spent fule  be transfered to dry storage casks after it is cooled in pools for around five years, but the NRC, which has previously considered such measures, decided the move would be too costly.

One of the study authors, Frank von Hippel, directly blames the NRC for downgrading the potential risk of fire spreading through nuclear facilities.

[…]

At least three major nuclear incidents were registered in the US last year, but the media withheld the information from the public, acording to anonhq.com, the website of an independent and investigative news organization.

  3. سپتیک تانک says

    ابتدا فاضلاب از طریق لوله ورودی وارد بخش اول سپتیک تانک می شود. این بخش که
    توسط یک دیواره جدا کننده از بخش دوم مخزن جدا شده است، حجمی معادل دو سوم از کل
    حجم سپتیک تانک را شامل می شود. با ورود فاضلاب به این بخش، مواد معلق و ذرات خارجی به
    سبب وزن بیشتر خود به سمت پایین حرکت کرده و در کف مخزن ته نشین می شوند. روغن و چربی ها نیز به دلیل اینکه دارای وزن مخصوص کمتری نسبت به فاضلاب هستند، به سمت بالا
    حرکت نموده و بر روی سطح شناور می گردند.
    تجمع مواد ته نشین شده در کف مخزن باعث ایجاد توده ای از لجن شده و میکروارگانیسم ها
    و باکتری ها در آن تکثیر یافته و رشد می کنند. واکنش های بیولوژیکی که در جریان تکثیر و
    رشد آنها اتفاق می افتد باعث می شود که مواد آلی آلاینده تجزیه شده و فاضلاب تصفیه گردد.
    انجام این واکنش ها همچنین سبب تبدیل حجم قابل توجهی از لجن به بیوگاز و کاهش حجم لجن
    می شود. بیوگاز تولید شده که عمدتاً متان است از طریق لوله خروج بیوگاز از سپتیک تانک
    خارج می گردد.

    درون مخزن سپتیک تانک فرآیند بیولوژیکی بی هوازی و فرایند فیزیکی متعادل سازی ته نشینی استفاده می شود. در تشریح مکانیزم تصفیه فاضلاب ابتداعا فاضلاب توسط شبکه جمع آوری فاضلاب جمع آوری شده و به فلنچ ورودی سپتیک تانک منتقل می شود به مرور جامدات آن ته نشین شده و چربی و روغن با چگالی کمتر از فاضلاب در روی سطح شناور می شود. باکتری ها و میکروارگانیسم های بیهوازی فاضلاب می توانند در آنجا رشد کنند و با تغذیه از فاضلاب سبب کاهش بار آلودگی فاضلاب گردند و پس از مصرف مواد آلی موجود در فاضلاب آن را به صورت گاز کربن آزاد کنند که این گاز توسط یک لوله در بالای سپتیک تانک تعبیه شده خارج می شود
    تغذیه باکتری ها از فاضلاب نه تنها تولید گاز میکند و بار آلودگی فاضلاب را کاهش می دهد سبب همضم بی هوازی لجن ته نشین شده در سپتیک تانک نیز می گردد، لازم به ذکر است پس از مدتی سپتیک تانک تخلیه شود و این نکته رو در نظر داشت در زمان تخلیه سپتیک تانک به طور کلی تخلیه نشود مقداری لجن حاوی باکتری ها و میکروارگانیسم های تصفیه فاضلاب درون دستگاه باقی بماند این عمل ریست کردن دستکاه سپتیک تانک می گویند.
