ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

New this year, Executive Panels have been added to provide busy nuclear professionals a broader look at developments in nuclear science and technology and their impact on policy and markets. The Executive Panels will focus on crisis communications, diversity and inclusion, lessons learned from new construction projects, and the 2021 Polar Vortex energy blackouts as well as advances in space technology, non-power technologies and nuclear capabilities, and action on nuclear waste.
Be a part of one of the largest gatherings of nuclear professionals in the country where the brightest minds engage – and inspire – leaders from across the nuclear science and technology landscape.
