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.

ANS members approve amendment adding YMG rep to board of directors
The American Nuclear Society will include a representative from the Young Members Group on its Board of Directors after ANS members voted this week overwhelmingly in favor of amending Article B6 of the ANS bylaws. The change was mandated by Objective Outcome 5 of the ANS Change Plan 2020.
To keep the number of directors at 16, the approved amendment decreased the number of non–U.S. resident directors from three to two.

Nuclear Supply Chains typically have a much more difficult time achieving standard supplier diversity goals than their counterparts. Some of the reasons for this include the volume of purchases made with the large OEMs, virtually all of which are investor-owned, the overhead necessary to support Appendix B programs, and safety requirement. Subcontracting and the engagement of Tier II suppliers is often talked about but rarely implemented to any degree of effectiveness. Many of the conferences and trade shows featuring diverse suppliers are not geared toward nuclear. This workshop will focus overcoming some of the challenges to the inclusion of diverse suppliers in the nuclear Supply Chain - a successful diverse nuclear supplier, successes in the inclusion of diverse businesses as Tier I and Tier II suppliers, and best practices to achieve these successes.
