A detailed review of the nuclear segment of the power industry and an evaluation of the ways in which nuclear power will impact on national air quality and emissions from fossil-fueled steam electric plants are presented. Electrical power from nuclear-fueled reactors will continue to grow at a substantial rate and will ultimately supply a major portion of electrical power in the United States. The development and use of nuclear plants will directly affect the use of fossil fuels to supply electrical power and will also directly affect the amounts of combustion products released to the environment. The forecast of future power supplied by nuclear reactors has been shown by optimization analysis to be strongly dependent upon the reactor types and their technological development. Fossil-fueled generating plants will continue to produce power at levels equal to or greater than 1970 levels for the next 80 years. (Author)
