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 Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Hanford completes wastewater basin work to support tank waste treatment
Record-breaking heat and the vast size of the job did not stop the Department of Energy’s Office of River Protection and its tank operations contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS), from completing a construction project critical to the Hanford Site’s Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste program for treating radioactive tank waste.

A Flinak/LiPb twin-loop Orosh2i-2 was constructed in the Fusion Engineering Research Project of NIFS to establish an engineering basis for the “real function” of a liquid blanket for fusion energy reactors. It was constructed with a 3 T superconducting magnet, which is the strongest in the world for these purposes. In this study, 120 litter Flinak and LiPb were successfully prepared in-situ in a purified glove-box. Designed flow velocity up to 1.5 m/sec was achieved for both. The magnetic field and velocity dependence on pressure drop agreed well with theoretical predictions. Tentative plans for phased experiments within the next few years have been presented, including operation of Supercritical-CO2 Turbine (SCOT) power generation system in the Flinak loop.
