Environmental impact assessment of uranium ore mining and milling with a LCA approach

Abstract : In any environmental impact assessment concerning nuclear power production, uranium ore mining and yellowcake (uranium concentrate) production operations cannot be ignored. A Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) study was carried out in order to identify the steps in these activities which have the most serious environmental impact.
Keywords : uranium LCA mining milling
