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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

A major concern for the general public and in the nuclear industry is the storage and disposal of used nuclear fuel and radioactive waste. Initiatives to turn spent nuclear waste into new fuel or into glass ceramics has recently grown interest as alternative post-processing methods. Join Dr. Hayes, Dr. Turinsky, and Mr. Nesbit to learn about how the US is currently managing radioactive waste, the potential job and career opportunities available in this sector, as well as research opportunities in the DOE complex.
