The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

The National Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC), established
by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in August 2019 as a national program led
by Idaho National Laboratory (INL), enables collaborators to harness the world
class capabilities of the U.S. National Laboratory System to bridge the gap
between research, development, and the energy marketplace to help convert some
of the Nation’s most promising advanced nuclear concepts into commercial
applications by 2030. This session will outline NRIC’s capabilities to support
advanced reactor developers to demonstrate their designs and highlight the benefits
of digital engineering with our demonstration platforms. There will be two
panels during this session that will address 1) Advanced Construction
Technologies and how they can be used in advanced nuclear reactor and 2) a
Siting Tool for Advanced Nuclear Development, which helps identify and compare
possible siting locations inside the continental U.S. for advanced nuclear
facilities based on factors related to socioeconomics, proximity, and safety.
