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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

Idaho site marks 30 years of cleanup
When the Department of Energy, the state of Idaho, and the Environmental Protection Agency signed a federal facility agreement and consent order in December 1991, the agencies outlined a plan to investigate and clean up, if necessary, more than 500 individual waste areas within the 890-square-mile Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site, which was established in 1949 to design, build, and test nuclear reactors.

There is growing appreciation of the role that clean, reliable, always-on nuclear energy must play in America’s clean energy future. Large light water reactors are being constructed around the world and two units are approaching operation in Georgia. Much of the new reactor focus in the U.S., however, is on new, innovative reactor technologies. Private companies working in cooperation with the Department of Energy and supported by our national laboratories and universities are developing small modular reactor and advanced non-light water reactor designs. The reactor is not the end of the story, however. Each reactor requires a reliable supply of high-quality nuclear fuel to sustain the outstanding plant performance we have come to take for granted from the nuclear industry. Many of the reactor designs use high assay low enriched uranium or HALEU – a class of fissile material that is not currently used in power reactors and for which the supply chain is still developing. Making sure the fuel is available when the reactors are ready to start up is an essential piece of the new reactor puzzle. Knowledgeable and influential speakers in the opening plenary will explore the key issues associated with the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle.
