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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

Next for nuclear: Energy arbitrage
Can nuclear power plants prosper in the grid of 2030 or 2035, when new wind and solar farms will make electricity prices even more volatile? Can plants install energy storage that will help them keep running at full power, 24/7, to ride out times of surplus and sell their energy only when prices are high?

Treatment and conditioning are used to convert radioactive, mixed, and hazardous wastes from various waste processing or used nuclear fuel reprocessing activities into inert waste forms for transportation, storage, and final disposal. The treated and conditioned wastes must ultimately be disposed of in a suitable disposal facility. Multiple disposal options are currently being considered for the most highly radioactive wastes, including geologic repositories and deep borehole disposal. This session discusses advances made in waste form development, reprocessing facility off-gas capture technologies, and disposal facility design and optimization.
