Nuclear Science Week: the ANS local and student sections events
Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is a celebration designed to focus local, regional, national, and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. National events marking the 11th annual NSW took place October 19–23 in Washington, D.C. This year’s theme was “Think Clean. Think Solutions. Think Nuclear.”
Several ANS local and student sections from around the world organized their own events to celebrate NSW, as follows:
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD
Tuesday, June 9, 2020|3:35–5:20PM (4:35–6:20PM EDT)
Sven O. Bader
Steven P. Nesbit
John Fabian (American Nuclear Society)
With the lack of political progress on a repository for HLW, this panel will take the opportunity to focus on the waste streams the U.S. nuclear complex (industry + government) does have waste disposal solutions for and will provide the current status of these disposal facilities. Hopefully through this discussion, the path towards success for a HLW repository will become evident. In addition, an update on the current status of the HLW repository program in the U.S. will be provided.
