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.

Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD
Thursday, December 2, 2021|2:05–3:50PM (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.
