Canada's Nuclear Achievement: Technical and Economic Perspectives, by T.E. Rummery and J.A. MacPherson, AECL, 01/07/1995. Doc type: Paper.
Summary: As published in the Canadian Nuclear Society Bulletin Vol. 16, No. 2, 1995 with the kind permission of the CNS: Canada's leading role and eminent accomplishments in nuclear development now span more than half a century. They encompass aspects as diverse as the design and sale of nuclear power reactors and research reactor technology, to the establishment of a corps of scientists, engineers and technologists with the expertise to address a wide scope of important nuclear science issues. To address the many facets of Canada's nuclear activities over the past 50 years would obviously require space far beyond that available in this paper. We have therefore limited this review to highlights we judge to be the most pertinent and interesting from an historical, technical and economic perspective. We also indicate briefly our view of the future of nuclear power in the overall context of energy needs in a world that is becoming more industrial and increasingly environmentally conscious.
