Abstract

The authors propose nuclear biomass gasification plant as an advancement of conventional gasification plants. Environmental impacts of both fission & fusion plants were assessed through life cycle assessment. The result suggested the reduction of green-house gas emissions would be as large as 85.9% from conventional plants, showing a potential for the sustainable future for both fission & fusion plants.
