Belgium’s nuclear phaseout begins
Unit 3 at the Doel nuclear power plant has become Belgium’s first reactor to be permanently shuttered, in keeping with that nation’s nuclear phaseout policy. The 1,006-MWe pressurized water reactor, which began commercial operation in October 1982, was removed from service last Friday at 9:31 p.m. (local time).
Belgium’s nuclear reactor fleet now consists of six operating units: Doel-1, -2, and -4 and Tihange-1, -2, and -3. Next on the retirement list is Tihange-2, scheduled to be shut down in February 2023.
An author may have any number of reasons to change their name in the course of their career and wish to update their published articles to reflect this change, with or without publicly announcing this through a correction notice. ANS will update articles within Nuclear News, Radwaste Solutions, Transactions, and/or any ANS-produced proceedings where an author makes a request for their own name change, full or partial, without the requirement for an accompanying correction notice. Any pronouns in accompanying author bios and declaration statements will also be updated as part of the name change, if required. ANS’s technical journals follow a similar name change policy found at Taylor & Francis.
When you request a name change, ANS will:
If you wish a correction notice to be published alongside your name change, ANS will accommodate this on request, but it is not required for an author name change to be made.
To request a name change, please contact ANS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ANS considers it a breach of publication ethics to request a name change for an individual without their explicit consent.
