INL makes—and prepares to test—commercial-grade HALEU fuel
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory in early 2023 manufactured commercial-grade high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel pellets to the specifications of a General Electric accident tolerant fuel design, INL announced November 21. A team working at INL’s Experimental Fuels Facility at the Material and Fuels Complex fabricated about two dozen uranium dioxide pellets using HALEU enriched up to 15 percent U-235.

In addition to more than 100 technical sessions, the 2023 ANS Winter Conference and Expo features nine executive sessions covering a wide range of the most pressing issues in the nuclear field.
Announcing this year's ANS Winter Conference and expo Theme:
Nuclear is enjoying a well-earned moment in the sun. In the last few years, the need for reliable, clean energy has come into sharper focus. We have witnessed historic public investments in both new and existing nuclear technology, accompanied by a strengthening of public support and acceptance. Is the industry up to the task of capitalizing on these tailwinds? To be successful we will need to maintain our current nuclear plants and facilities at their peak condition for long term operations while we simultaneously commercialize a new generation of advanced technologies. Challenges abound. We need a larger workforce, reinvigorated supply chains, a robust nuclear R&D infrastructure, and expanded public and private sector investments, and increased public advocacy for the benefits of the nuclear power.
How do we maintain momentum in a rapidly changing energy and environmental landscape? Join America’s top nuclear leaders and be part of the conversation.
Over a quarter of our audience has decision-making and buying power (CNO, COO, VP and Senior level staff). These powerful decision-makers control huge budgets and attend the Winter Conference and Expo with serious purchasing intent, looking for new technology solutions and practical innovations that best fit their operations’ needs.
Is your organization looking to bring on new talent with fresh ideas and energy? Thirty two percent of our audience are students and young members, just finishing college or looking for their first opportunity in the industry. Make your presence known to graduates from some of the top universities in the world.
