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 Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

Framatome and USNC team up to produce TRISO fuel at Framatome facility
Framatome Inc. and Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp. (USNC) signed an agreement on November 28 at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris, France, establishing a joint venture to manufacture nuclear fuel for USNC’s gas-cooled microreactor and other advanced reactor designs. Working together, the companies plan to produce commercial quantities of TRISO fuel particles and USNC’s proprietary Fully Ceramic Microencapsulated (FCM) fuel, which contains TRISO fuel particles within a ceramic fuel pellet.

Thank you for participating in the 2022 ANS Winter Meeting and Technology Expo!
Transactions of the American Nuclear Society, Volume 127, from the Winter Meeting are now available to all who registered for the 2022 Winter Meeting. Access to the Transactions is linked to the account you used to register for the meeting.
You can also access the Transactions by logging in to the ANS website. Click Subscriber Access from the left-hand navigation bar to be taken to the publication platform, epubs. On the epubs platform, click Transactions from the navigation bar. On the next page, the 2022 Winter Meeting Transactions will be available.
The Proceedings of the International High-Level Radioactive Waste Management Conference, which was embedded with the Winter Meeting, are also available.
With stronger public support and new NetZero policies in place, nuclear technology is primed for a major resurgence both here and abroad. Now, the race is on to upgrade our existing nuclear plants for the long haul and bring a new generation of advanced reactors into commercial operation.
It won’t be easy: our domestic supply chains need strengthening, our regulatory systems must be more agile and responsive, we have acute workforce shortages in skilled professions, and our fuel cycle and waste management policies are way behind the curve.
But the American nuclear community has done it before, and we can do it again.
Join us this November as thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise tackle the practical challenges of ushering in a new nuclear era in the U.S. and around the world.
