Are Oceans The Future Of Nuclear Power?
From Daily Mail
Extracting uranium from seawater is closer to becoming an economic reality which could guarantee the future of nuclear power, scientists said today.
The world’s oceans hold at least four billion tons of the precious metal. But for the past four decades, the goal of mining seawater for uranium has remained a dream because of the technical difficulties and high cost.
Today, a report presented to a scientific meeting showed that fast progress is being made towards turning the oceans into a uranium reservoir.
