The panel discussion will include the importance of siting commercial nuclear generation for energy-intensive industries and remote communities requiring clean, firm energy 24/7/365. As a leader in Carbon Emissions Reduction, DOW has led the way with siting an advanced reactor at their Seadrift, TX location. Remote communities and, in some cases remote communities with industrial projects such as mining, envision, and some cases are working towards increasing energy reliability while minimizing their carbon footprint. Ideal for advanced reactor technology deployments.

Canada and the US have long collaborated on peaceful nuclear technologies as neighbors and allies. Regulations for siting advanced civil nuclear technologies is a topic of high interest and ongoing collaboration between Canada and the US.

Key points and perspectives that may be discussed:

  • Importance of Nuclear Energy for Carbon Emissions Reduction
  • DOW’s Advance Small Modular Reactor (SMR) project
  • Canada-US Nuclear Collaboration
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Environmental Licensing Requirements
  • Increased efficiencies for Licensing Industrial Sites
  • In Summary, this panel discussion should provide a comprehensive overview of the role of nuclear energy in meeting carbon reduction goals for energy-intensive industries. Ongoing collaboration between the US and Canada is a key element in reaching carbon emission targets. The Panel will also address the importance of collaborating on regulatory and environmental aspects of siting new nuclear plants in industrial settings.
