John Mattingly, Ph.D. (NCSU)
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine conducted a study on advanced nuclear reactor fuel cycles, waste generation, and associated proliferation risks mandated by the US Congress. They published a report in early 2023 evaluating the merits and risks, entitled "Merits and Viability of Different Nuclear Fuel Cycles and Technology Options and the Waste Aspects of Advanced Nuclear Reactors." The American Nuclear Society reviewed the report and issued a letter in March 2023, agreeing with some but not all of the report's findings. This executive session panel will discuss the report’s main points and the Society's response and engage in an interactive discussion about areas of agreement and disagreement.
