Nuclear power plants are the spaces containing several reactors. They are usually installed in areas without seismic activity (to avoid accidents) and near the water (to facilitate the cooling of the circuits).
Nuclear reactors emit no greenhouse gases in the atmosphere although they produce radioactive waste cannot be disposed of in thousands of years. This is so that the potential for accidents lead defenders of ecology to criticize the reactors.
The chemical reactor, for its part, is the installation in which a chemical reaction occurs. It may be continuous or discontinuous reactors (according to their mode of operation) or homogeneous or heterogeneous reactors (according to the phases that they welcome).
