However, without this source of energy it seems to find other options to get the energy though we have non-renewable energy options but very limited.
Thus, the concern is the waste of nuclear.

You can substitute one of these for the coal furnace in an existing power plant. The big advantage being it is sealed so there is no radiation. Only the steam circuit needs to be attached.
