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.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

DOE renews Portsmouth grant to Ohio University
The Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management has renewed a $2.5 million grant to Ohio University to support community redevelopment around the DOE’s Portsmouth Site. Since 2016, the DOE has provided a total of $8.2 million to the university for work with the communities.
The DOE grant, which began on October 1, will be administered over five years through September 30, 2027. A previous grant expired on September 30.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has been promoting the IEA Environment, Safety and Economic Aspects of Fusion Power program for many years. Among the tasks of this program, one task in particular deals with radioactive waste management in order to analyze the issue of the final destination of fusion activated and tritiated materials after their use in a fusion power reactor. A collaborative study on these aspects has been carried out in recent years. An optimized waste management strategy is proposed, with the goals of avoiding underground disposal as much as possible, maximizing recycling of activated materials within the nuclear industry, and/or clearance and release to commercial markets if materials contain only slight traces of radioactivity. Some technological problems and recent research advances in this field are summarized.
