NRC moves ahead on HALEU enrichment, rulemaking, and guidance
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is requesting comments on the regulatory basis for a proposed rule for light water reactor fuel designs featuring high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU), including accident tolerant fuel (ATF) designs, and on draft guidance for the environmental evaluation of ATFs containing uranium enriched up to 8 percent U-235. Some of the HALEU feedstock for those LWR fuels and for advanced reactor fuels could be produced within the first Category II fuel facility licensed by the NRC—Centrus Energy’s American Centrifuge Plant in Piketon, Ohio. On September 21, the NRC approved the start of enrichment operations in the plant’s modest 16-machine HALEU demonstration cascade.
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD

At this panel, scientists and engineers from molten salt reactor companies and research institutions will provide their views regarding industrial needs for fundamental research on molten salt properties, chemistry, and corrosion to support molten salt reactor development and applications. The session will cover both fluoride and chloride salts. Each panelist will present a short presentation prior to an open Q&A session in which the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, provide suggestions, and express their opinions. It is expected that the session will facilitate fruitful discussion between industry experts, researchers at national laboratories, and universities, including scientists, professors and students.
