Lecture on nuclear energy’s role in climate-related innovation coming up
As part of the Purdue University–Duke Energy Understanding Tomorrow’s Nuclear Energy Lecture Series, Richard K. Lester of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will give a speech on Wednesday, November 30, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. EST. Lester, associate provost and a professor of nuclear science and engineering at MIT, was previously head of the university’s Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering. The event will also feature a panel discussion with Lester, Lefteri H. Tsoukalas, and Morgan Smith.
Register now: The lecture, “Tough Tech for Climate: Innovation Challenges, University Responsibilities, and Some Comments on the Nuclear Role,” can be attended in person at Eliza Fowler Hall, in the Stewart Center of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The talk will also be available to watch on YouTube, where it will be live streamed. Advance registration is required. Following registration, individuals will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

This conference provides an international forum for the discussion of the scientific, technical, social, and regulatory aspects associated with the storage, extended storage, transportation, recycling, and disposal of used/spent fuel, high-level and other radioactive waste, including decommissioning waste. As nuclear power is being looked at globally to address climate change, a proactive focus on resolving “back end” of the fuel cycle issues is paramount. Consent-based siting of both centralized interim storage facilities and geologic repositories will be instrumental to fostering this growth. Lessons learned and innovative approaches will be shared amongst participants from industry, government, academia, policymakers, and the interested public. International and student participation are highly encouraged to facilitate knowledge transfer to countries pursuing a nuclear future and to the generation that will be responsible for implementation.
