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.
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD
Thursday, December 2, 2021|3:05–4:50PM EST |Columbia 1
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition (SFWD) is conducting research and development (R&D) supporting final disposition of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste (HLW). SFWD has two offices: the Office of Spent Fuel & Waste Science and Technology (SFWST) and the Office of Integrated of Waste Management (IWM). In this panel session, we will discuss various SFWST sponsored activities in the national laboratory complex including (1) R&D projects supporting high-burnup, large scale, long-term storage and subsequent transportation of SNF, and (2) disposal R&D including evaluation of the feasibility of the direct disposal of dual-purpose canisters.
