By Peter Arnett Al* Spatial Correiponrirnt I lie awesome spectacle of un leashed atomic energy buisl upon the world 2H years ugi when th(‘ I S dropped nuclear bombs un two Japanese cities ti end World war ll I Ins splitting of the atom ahi Wave mankind the hope of ai endless future supply of criers for peaceful pursuits. How near is this age of nu clear power rum that I hr world's most important fuel — oil — is subject to the pet rope Ii ties of tin' Arab world? II s just starting. “Mere Blip” The 35 conventional nuclear fission power plants iii operation in 1972 “for the first time moved (nuclear power) from a men blip to a recognizable energy statistic,” c o rn rn e ii t e (I tin Atomic industrial Forum F.lectricity accounts for a fifth of the nation’s energy use, and nuclear power generates about .1 percent of this electricity. Nuclear power constitutes one percent of the country’s over-all energy consumption. This year, ten more nuclear plants went into operation IU 19K5. an additional 150 nuclear plants now under construction or on order will he ready. Far Ii takes al least five years to build. Industry and government experts estimate that of the expected 19K5 demand for HOO million kilowatts of electricity, nuclear power will provide 21(1 million, or 35 percent. By the turn of the century half of all electricity produced in the nation is lo be from nuclear plants. The industry has hopes that the next 25 years will be better than the past 25. Major difficulties slowed development. Secret Data One problem was that only after 1955 did the U.S. government make public secret scientific data needed to construct the peacetime reactor. The first nuclear-powered generator went on line in 1957. Public fear of accidents and of long-term, low-level radiation was another factor in the delay. (’ansu rn e r advocate Ralph Nader has become a major critic because of tho safety factor. Nuclear power experts see two continuing hazards. One is that no full-scale emergency core cooling system has ever been tested. And a foolproof system of storing radioactive waste over the long period necessary has not been developed. Waste management remains a problem on U.S. government military waste reserves in the West where there are periodic public complaints about leakage of buried radioactive waste. “But waste can In* handled," commented one expert. “There have been successful experiments converting waste into solids similar to ceramic pellets, which contain the radioactive elements. Other problems lie ahead, including the need for developing an adequate supply of nuclear fuel. But the implications of America’s dependence on foreign oil have spurred the government into pushing ahead with major research programs. The Atomic Energy Commission has recoin mended that nearly $3 billion Im s|M*nt in the next seven years on the breeder reactor, a device that creates slightly more fuel than it consumes. Next (federation The breeder is regarded as the next generation of nuclear fission power plants. The government is looking even further ahead, toward thermonuclear fusion, the process involved in the detonation of a hydrogen bomb. Controlling fusion is extremely difficult and scientists have not found a way to combine the three (dements of the process: heating neutrons to 20 million degrees, maintaining their density and maintaining heat and density over a period of time. Any one of these elements is |M»ssible now, but not the three together Next year this process will receive about $145 million iii research monies, and more if any breakthroughs are made, the Atomic Energy Commission says. Fusion attracts the experts because, unlike the conventional fission process, its fuel can Im* deuterium, a common element in sea water There is no nu clear waste in the fusion process, but the reactor itself becomes radioactive, creating a problem not present iii fission reactors Mattress Clearances!
