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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Newest Russian icebreaker ready to hit the ice
The Arktika, Russia’s latest nuclear-powered icebreaker, sailed from the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg last week, bound for the Murmansk seaport. The voyage is scheduled to take approximately two weeks, during which time the vessel will be tested “in ice conditions,” according to Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned atomic energy corporation.

A novel disc tubular reverse osmosis (DTRO) system was designed and applied for the removal of cesium ions from the simulated radioactive wastewater to enhance the concentration factor (CF), which is usually low with a conventional reverse osmosis system (about tenfold volume reduction). In this study, a three-stage structure was proposed to perform the decontamination and concentration separately for the radioactive wastewater treatment at different stages. This novel DTRO system makes it possible to achieve both high retention index (~99%) and CF (over 70) simultaneously. The system was operated at room temperature under ~4 MPa for stages I and II (permeate stages) and 6 to 8 MPa for stage III (concentrate stage). The wastewater processing capacity reached 450 ℓ/h, and only ~6 ℓ/h concentrate was produced. The DTRO system has the potential for application in the treatment of real radioactive wastewater produced in nuclear power plants.
