"[...]the study that refers (it is also mentioned by the ADME in its Guide of emission factors) is that of Benjamin K. Sovacool of the University of Singapore which results in even higher quantities. He showed that the C02 emissions attributable to nuclear power generation averages 66gr / CO2 / kWh based on a critical review of 103 studies devoted to this issue. 38% of the sector's CO2 emissions are due to uranium ore mining, packaging and transportation operations.
Ah, I recommend reading this thread:

concerning the famous Sovacool study, I wrote there, after reading it:

The famous Sovacool study is here:
Not uninteresting to read to understand the cycle.
- it identifies 103 studies
- it eliminates 40 because they are more than ten years old
- it eliminates 9 because they are paid, or in Japanese, ...
- he eliminates 35 because he does not like the methodology.
- there are therefore 19 left, including 3 from Storm Van Leeuwen, the 3 giving the ladle identical results, at the top of the range.
Weird isn't it? Can we vote 3 times when there are 17 voters?
