Supplements to "For Nuclear Power"
A nuclear power plant (a cluster of 3 reactors) will (I say) have an
average output of 2 x 10exp+9 watts (electrical). A nearly 100%
efficient reverse osmosis desalination unit (possible because
desalination is a thermodynamically reversible process) would produce
690 million gallons per hour of salt-free, bacteria-free, virus-free,
arsenic-free, uranium-free water. This is 16 1/2 Billion gallons per day
of this clear liquid, or 16 gallons a day for a billion people. If the
nuclear reactor and elecrical generator's waste heat is used in the
desalination plant, water output can be approximately doubled. This will
let 1 billion people each flush their toilets 88 times per day. Or they
can drink some, swim in some or sprinkle their lawns. Whatever.
Somebody tell me it can't be done.
