Framatome and USNC team up to produce TRISO fuel at Framatome facility
Framatome Inc. and Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp. (USNC) signed an agreement on November 28 at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris, France, establishing a joint venture to manufacture nuclear fuel for USNC’s gas-cooled microreactor and other advanced reactor designs. Working together, the companies plan to produce commercial quantities of TRISO fuel particles and USNC’s proprietary Fully Ceramic Microencapsulated (FCM) fuel, which contains TRISO fuel particles within a ceramic fuel pellet.
Building a Stronger Voice.
Across the globe, dozens of Local sections are the backbone of ANS. They perform excellent work on behalf of nuclear professionals. All members are urged to join a Local Section or Plant Branch to build their network and to help serve the nuclear community through public education and outreach.
Find a Local Section or Plant Branch near you by using the map below.
If there isn't one near you, then learn how to start a Local Section.
To find out more information about the mission of local sections, awards, and more, go to the Local Sections Committee Website.To provide demographic and financial details for payments for your local section, please complete the Section Membership Payments form.
ANS Local Sections allow members to interact with other members and nuclear professionals to network and learn about relevant issues in their region.
ANS Plant Branches allow members to interact with other members and nuclear professionals to network and learn about relevant issues at their plant.
