Nuclear Energy

EJOLT will contribute to an improved understanding among European citizens and policy-makers of nuclear power production through raising awareness on various stages of nuclear energy production. A cost-benefit analysis of nuclear power vs. renewable energy sources is being carried out that will help refute one of the most common myths of nuclear energy: its economic viability.

EJOLT further aims to build capacity to identify the radiological impacts of uranium mining, the first step of the nuclear chain and crucially ignored when analysing impacts of nuclear energy. We have carried out fieldtrips in Namibia, Malawi, Bulgaria and Brazil. Moreover, we aim to emphasize scientific debates over uncertain risks at the whole nuclear chain, and examine legal avenues for environmental enforcement in involved countries.
