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.

NRC seeks comments on new fee schedule for FY 2024
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is asking for feedback on proposed changes to the annual, licensing, inspection, and special projects fees for fiscal year 2024.
The proposed fee rule, published February 20 in the Federal Register, is based on the FY 2024 Congressional Budget Justification as a full-year appropriation, but it has not yet been enacted. The final rule will be based on the NRC’s actual appropriation, and the agency will update the final fee schedule as appropriate.

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.
