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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

The Federal government has significantly increased the level of support for nuclear energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) over the past decade. Some new programs such as the Gateway for the Acceleration of Advanced Nuclear (GAIN), the Nuclear Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC), and the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP) have been created while other traditional programs continue. There does not seem to have been a significant strategic review of the interfaces between all of these programs. This panel will discuss a set of proposed basic principles under which RDD&D programs could be structured, intending to open up a national conversation about how we spend funds in the goal of advancing the possibilities for the use of nuclear energy.
To join the conversation, you must be logged in and registered for the meeting.
