TAKE-A-LOOK-France's nuclear industry seeks global role

 The French nuclear industry aims to turn its decades-long experience in
building and running nuclear power stations into an export engine and the
country's companies are busy scoring contracts around the world as diminishing
reserves of oil and gas facilitate a rise in atomic energy.
 But waste and security issues keep nuclear energy a hot political potato and
not just another economic option for a country's energy needs.
 Reuters reporters cover the industry closely and detail its plans and
challenges in a series of articles involving EDF EDF.PA, GDF Suez GSZ.PA,
Areva CEPFi.PA and Alstom ALSO.PA, among others.
