Nuclear Education by Virginia Recycles Used/Spent Nuclear Fuel's - NUCLEAR ED 

Nuclear Ed Announces....

Nuclear Ed Says - It's only waste if you waste it! It is not too expensive to Recycle Used/Spent Nuclear Fuel.... It is too Expensive Not to Recycle it! It is a Good thing & the Right thing to do for Virginia and the United States of America!

ANS Dr Rita Baranwal
Dr Rita Baranwal on Vitrified Storage

At the opening presentation on Monday November 18, 2019 at the American Nuclear Society's Winter & Expo Dr. Rita Baranwal, Assistant Secretary of the Office of Nuclear Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) stated that along with Advancing Nuclear Energy, Recycling Used/Spent Nuclear Fuel should be part of the US Policy in Nuclear Energy Production.

Right after the presentation my colleague Steve Curtis and Dr. Rita Baranwal were able to briefly speak and she requested to setup a meeting with Steve Curtis and me (Tom Dolan). We are moving swiftly forward in the right direction!

I do not think that I have heard any one say it better than Dr. Rita Baranwal:

Yes!! Standing directly over vitrified, Remnant high-level rad waste (post-Recycling 96% of Used fuel), in a room that stores >20 years of it.

It's only waste if you waste it!

Don't have to believe us, but the DATA and Numbers Don't Lie!


Argonne National Laboratory explains Nuclear Fuel Recycling with a technique called Pyroprocessing.



Because of the increasing frequency and severity of the damage, detrimental health effects, death and Climate Change caused by fossil fuel produced energy, Best Selling Author George Erickson of the www.tundracub.com has decided to make this updated version of his "Unintended Consequences" :…, his 5th pro-science book, available FREE – even though it sells on Amazon for $24.00.

Climate guru uses science to debunk HBO's 'Chernobyl' on Glenn Beck's Radio Show - July 9, 2019

Michael Shellenberger takes us through HBO's "Chernobyl" to explain the truth about nuclear energy. Watch this clip to learn how people looking at their iPhones while walking or driving is responsible for more deaths each day than the Chernobyl catastrophe.

Pro-Nuclear insights video from a popular comedy show about politics in Germany

MUST READ SUBTITLES - It is pro-nuclear which is significant because the Government shut down (or is shutting down) all the nuclear plants in the country in favor of wind and solar. Germans pay triple for their power and their air quality has significantly degraded because they replaced nuclear power with brown coal.

Some NOTES:

  • For Fukushima, the lung cancer is this guy got is not attributable to the reactor.

  • You know the Chernobyl deal, so the 4000 deaths are a fairy tale.

  • Of course we know about recycling so it does not stay a danger for "100,000" years, which is a figure people pull from their a** with no reference base.

We MUST reduce CO2-emission quickly, else global warming will take over. Switching to wind turbines and solar panels is taking too long. There is another way of generating electricity without CO2-emissions: nuclear energy. But because a lot of people find nuclear energy scary and stupid, it has to leave the taboo-realm first.

It is a great video on apples to apples Economics over the lifetime of a nuclear plant vs a natural gas plant. it is about a half hour but well worth watching to truly understand the lifetime costs and income of it all!

Economics of Nuclear Reactor


What are the costs to construct, fuel and operate a nuclear power plant compared to a natural gas power plant. Compares capital cost and fuel costs and looks at how the cost over time should be analyzed. A great video series of clear and concise videos by Professor David Ruzic on his Illinois EnergyProf YouTube channel!


Dealing with the Used Fuel (Reprocessing)


What comes out of a nuclear reactor and how and why you would want to separate the fission products from the actinides (trans-uranics). The radiotoxicity of the wastes vs time. How reprocessing has been done and is being done around the world.


Reactors of the Future (Generation IV)


Difference of the future reactors, generation IV, from the ones of today and how they may be more efficient by running hotter with less down time, and safer. High-Temperature Gas-Cooled reactor, Helium-Cooled Very-High-Temperature reactor, Lead or Salt cooled reactor, and the Pebble-Bed reactor, are all described.

Papers & Studies

MIT Energy Initiative study reports on the future of nuclear energy

  • How can the world achieve the deep carbon emissions reductions that are necessary to slow or reverse the impacts of climate change? The authors of a new MIT study say that unless nuclear energy is meaningfully incorporated into the global mix of low-carbon energy technologies, the challenge of climate change will be much more difficult and costly to solve. For nuclear energy to take its place as a major low-carbon energy source, however, issues of cost and policy need to be addressed.

MIT's "The Future of Nuclear Energy in a Carbon-Constrained World,"

  • released by the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) on Sept. 3, the authors analyze the reasons for the current global stall of nuclear energy capacity — which currently accounts for only 5 percent of global primary energy production — and discuss measures that could be taken to arrest and reverse that trend.

Nuclear Ed can walk you through how to know more on how to Educate Yourself on "Things Nuclear"!

But, Please standby as this will not happen overnight! So far there are only two people putting ALL of this Carbon Free Recycling Crusade together!
