With support from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Platform on Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and their Applications, Jordan is making progress towards the introduction of nuclear power to produce both electricity and drinking water. Jordan, which is 75% desert, has scarce water resources while demand is increasing. A desalination plant powered by an SMR could produce fresh water from the Red Sea for delivery to the 4m residents of the capital, Amman, which is rapidly expanding.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is providing live data from Japan on the release of treated water from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP on the IAEA website. The data includes water flow rates, radiation monitoring data and the concentration of tritium after dilution. Fukushima NPP operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), has now begun the controlled discharge of the water into the sea. At the same time, Tepco began transmitting data from various points in the process to the IAEA.

A new report by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), “Beyond Electricity: The Economics of Nuclear Cogeneration”, published on 22 July says: “Nuclear energy is an important source of low-carbon electricity and plays a significant role in avoiding carbon emissions. It has the potential to contribute further to the decarbonisation of the world’s energy sector if it is also used to provide heat for industrial applications, which today mainly run on fossil fuels.”

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued a Confirmatory Order to Homestake Mining Co of California outlining actions to be taken as part of an ongoing groundwater clean up programme at the site of a former uranium mill near Grants in New Mexico. The mill processed uranium from several local mines between 1958 and 1990 and was decommissioned and demolished between 1993 and 1995. Tailings were placed in two piles. In 1975 it was discovered that seepage from the tailings had contaminated groundwater, and a groundwater protection plan was implemented from 1977.

Water is not only necessary for survival of living organisms - we also use it for plant irrigation and in almost every production industry. At least 1,000 litres of water is needed to grow 1kg of wheat, 5,000-10,000 litres is required for meat production, and 1kg of steel would require at least 30-35 litres. As a result, while human activities demand more and more water, the traditionally used underground water reserves extracted through wells are rapidly depleting.
