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.

A review of workforce trends in the nuclear community
The nuclear community is undergoing a moment of unprecedented interest and growth not seen in decades. The passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act are providing a multitude of new funding opportunities for the nuclear community, and not just the current fleet. A mix of technologies and reactor types are being evaluated and deployed, with Vogtle Units 3 and 4 coming on line later this year, the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Projects of X-energy and TerraPower, and NuScale’s work with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to build a first-of-a-kind small modular reactor, making this is an exciting time to join the nuclear workforce.

Bus will depart and return to the Shilo
Join us for a tour of Idaho National Laboratory’s Materials and Fuels Complex. This tour will consist of visiting the Transient Reactor Test Facility, the Hot Fuel Examination Facility, the Experimental Breeder Reactor II Dome, the Irradiated Materials Characterization Laboratory, and the Space and Security Power Systems Facility. These facilities are used to test and analyze future nuclear fuels, small modular and micro-reactor concepts and provide nuclear power systems for NASA and other customers. Come see the future of nuclear power at Idaho National Laboratory!
Lunch will be provided by INL.
