U.S. reactor technologies to be featured at IAEA conference
A virtual side event at the 64th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency will spotlight U.S. reactor technologies. The free event, US Reactor Technologies: Flexible Energy Security for Real-World Challenges, will be held this Thursday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (EDT).
The event will highlight the capabilities of small modular reactors and other innovative reactors for addressing countries’ current needs. It will also examine anticipated challenges in the future, as well as underscore the need to act now.
The event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Advanced registration is required.

Tritium permeability through FeCrAl-oxide-dispersion-strengthened (ODS) ferritic steel containing Ce oxides (Ce-ODS steel) was measured at temperatures ranging from 373 to 623 K. Some of the Ce-ODS steel specimens were oxidized by means of an autoclave treatment at 563 K for 30 days to examine the effect of the surface oxidized layer on the tritium permeability. The tritium permeability obtained for nonoxidized specimen was consistent with that for other common ferritic steels and FeCrAl ferritic steel. For the oxidized specimen, the surface oxide layer suppressed the apparent tritium permeability. The permeability for the oxidized specimen also depended on the atmosphere of the downstream in the permeation experiment: An atmosphere containing water vapor yielded lower tritium permeability compared with a reductive one.
