Note: Related CO2 emissions from coal, gas and oil are also shown, as well as resources in 2004 (see Figure 4.4) and their depletion between 2004 and 2030 (vertical bars to the left). The resource efficiency ratio by which fast-neutron technology increases the power-generation capability per tonne of natural uranium varies greatly from the OECD assessment of 30:1 (OECD, 2006b). In this diagram the ratio used is up to 240:1 (OECD, 2006c).
