The Environmental Effectiveness of Digitalization of the Nuclear Industry
This paper discusses the environmental effectiveness of digitalization as exemplified in the nuclear industry. The paper analyzes one of the three most important factors of sustainable development, the environment. The analysis shows that the implementation of digital interfaces in various fields has produced a considerable improvement, which can be proven by the rising environmental rates of the nuclear industry. The paper describes a system for the implementation of environmental policy including the corporate data warehouse, automatic radiation monitoring system, object monitoring of subsoil condition, and Russian System for radioactive waste management. The introduction of computer interfaces has already proven to be effective and lead to reduction of emissions, discharges, and waste, which has made NPP operation much safer..
