Countries with advanced nuclear weapons programs can easily design devices well below the kiloton
In 2010, the market size of bamboo viscose fiber in China was just shy of 50 kilotons
and merely occupied a very small proportion of the entire viscose fiber market.
Till June 2010, the capacity of carbon fiber projects planned to be built or under construction in China recorded 60 kilotons
or so, hereinto, the capacity of the projects planned to go into operation at the end of 2010 (including those went into operation before June 2010) exceeded 7 kilotons
Consider this: the bomb which incinerated Hiroshima was only 15 kilotons
The Philippines, meanwhile, is not even in the top 40, producing only about 97,000 kilotons
By the end of 80s, 95% of the world's highly enriched uranium and plutonium resources had been concentrated in US and USSR -- 600 kilotons
and 1,100 kilotons
In addition, the study found that globally, nonwovens demand was 8,687 kilotons
last year and should reach 13,652 kilotons
by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 6.
To give you some frame of reference here (and please bear with me on the maths, the nuclear arena is the one place where I find maths horribly fascinating) there are 1000 kilotons
in a megaton.
Anionic surfactants dominated the global market in terms of volume with 7,080 kilotons
in 2013, followed by non-ionic surfactants, which were 6,224 kilotons
for the same year.
The new plant will also raise chlorine production capacity by up to 250 kilotons
Asteroid impacts greater than 20 kilotons
occurred in South Sulawesi, Indonesia, in 2009, the Southern Ocean in 2004, and the Mediterranean Sea in 2002.
The plant will be capable of producing 800 kilotons
