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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

Various advanced reactor and fuel technologies whereof ATF-fuels for LWRs and SMRs with HALEU or even with TRU-fuels are being developed with improved technical-economic performance and sustainability in mind.
Such developments are ideally embedded into a more holistic view on the expected performance of such advanced nuclear technologies not at least from the spent nuclear fuel and waste management perspective. Such new developments present new back-end fuel cycle challenges but also opportunities including prospect towards more sustainable fuel cycle options and impacting the resulting waste management options for the future.
This panel session will present the latest insights of these aspects as presented by four international experts on these matters, i.e.:
• Sylvia Saltzstein (SNL, USA)
• Amparo Gonzalez Espartero, IAEA, Fuel Cycle and Waste management Division
• Jasmina Vujic (University of California at Berkeley, USA)
• Ian McKinley (McKinley Consulting, Switzerland)
Luc Van Den Durpel (Nuclear-21) will moderate this panel-session with the session being chaired by Stefani Buster.
