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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

The advent of advanced and small reactor designs has led to the need for new, non-traditional fuels such as accident-tolerant fuel, fuel salts, and TRISO fuels, many of which will use HALEU. As such, new fuel cycle needs have arisen for fabricating, storing, and transporting these fuels. For example, molten salt reactors may require a centralized salt processing facility. Moreover, since used HALEU fuel still contains valuable HALEU, it may prove economical to recycle HALEU fuel. This panel session explores front- and back-end fuel cycle needs to enable successful deployment of small and advanced reactors.
