Ukrainian Nuclear Society Presents Its New Report
The Ukrainian Nuclear Society published an analytical report of the impact of the functioning of the nuclear energy complex on the development of Ukraine.
«Impact of nuclear industry on the development of Ukraine» aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of the activities of enterprises of the nuclear industry in Ukraine and determine their overall impact on the economy, social sphere and ecology.
For instance, Ukrainian NPPs over the entire period of their operation allowed to avoid releasing more than 3 billion tons of СО2 into the environment (taking into account the lifetime extension for 10 NPP units).
Additionally, 70 million tons of CO2 would have been emitted annually in case of NPP shutdown.
These statistics and other interesting results on Ukrainian nuclear development, government’s net-zero goal by 2070, employment and GDP impact are available here:
