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.

DOE lists five stories to watch in 2021
Despite all the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. nuclear energy community pulled out some big wins in 2020, and this year could be even bigger, according to the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy.
From deep space exploration on Mars to a historic new reactor coming online in Waynesboro, Ga., 2021 will be a record-breaking year for the industry—both good and potentially bad.

Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD
Tuesday, November 17, 2020|11:00AM–1:10PM (12:00–2:10PM EST)
Dan Goldberg (American Nuclear Society)
Molten salt chemistry is important for molten salt applications in molten salt reactors, pyrochemical separation as well as energy storage. The chemistry includes the fundamental properties of the salt, salt purification, material separation and impurity removal, and material corrosion and corrosion control. The panel will cover all those topics. Considering that both molten chloride and fluoride salts have significant applications in the nuclear field, the panel will cover both types of salt. We will invite international experts from universities and national laboratories (domestic and international) to be on the panel to present their understanding and recent progress in molten salt chemistry.
