ABSTRACT
The article discusses the review made by the Australian Prime Ministerial Task Force on Uranium Processing and Nuclear Energy (PMTFUPNE) on issues concerning the establishment of nuclear energy plants and uranium processing and operations in the country. According to the report, nuclear power in Australia has been proven to be environmental friendly. However, the 5-month inquiry by the PMTUMPNE identified nuclear energy only as a reserve technology for Australia. This is due to the abundance of low-cost coal and gas in the country, which are the fuels needed for the production of 90 percent of its electricity, as well as 34 percent of its greenhouse gases.
