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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

Spotlight On: The ANS Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences Division
“A group of professionals having fun in the fields of decommissioning and environmental sciences for the nuclear industry.”
That’s how the ANS DESD describes itself on its website (desd.ans.org). The focus of this professional is the development and use of skills and technologies needed for the optimal management of the end-of-life care (decommissioning, decontamination, and remediation), long-term surveillance, and maintenance of nuclear installations, materials, facilities, and sites.

It’s been a long journey, but we are closer than ever before to deploying the next generation of advanced reactors. New, innovative designs with enhanced safety and improved economics, including small modular and micro reactors, should be under construction in only a few years. Speakers from across the new reactor community will address how we got here, what we’ve learned, and how we keep the momentum going to assure success.
