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.

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.

Thermo-hydraulic analyses of the tungsten mono-block divertor module with a water cooling tube made from a diamond/copper composite (DCC) as a laminate and a martensitic steel EUROFER against the power loadings expecting in DEMO operation is presented. Thermal analysis is carried out by using the code MEMOS, which simulates W armor damage under the repetitive edge localized modes (ELM) heat impact. Heat transfer to the water coolant is studied for various coolant conditions which allow one to keep the material temperatures within the allowable design limits under neutron irradiation. The thermal performance is analyzed for the DEMO I and DEMO II reactor conditions for un-mitigated and mitigated ELMs. The importance of W vapor shielding effect is discussed.
