X-energy, DOW to collaborate on SMR deployment
Small modular reactor developer X-energy and materials science giant Dow this morning announced the signing of a letter of intent aimed at deploying X-energy’s Xe-100 reactor technology at one of Dow’s U.S. Gulf Coast facilities. The companies expect the SMR plant, which would provide power and process heat to the Dow facility, to be operational by approximately 2030.
Dow is the first manufacturer to declare its intention to develop SMR technology options and intends to take a minority equity stake in X-energy, according to the announcement.
News of the collaboration broke at the American Nuclear Society’s Utility Working Conference and Vendor Technology Expo, being held through August 10 at Marco Island, Fla.

A Brighter Tomorrow takes a proactive and, at times, provocative look at nuclear power. It argues that the United States and indeed the world must increasingly rely on nuclear power for electricity in the twenty-first century. Senator Pete V. Domenici (R-New Mexico) argues that after weighing the costs and benefits of other forms of energy production, including oil, gas, coal, and renewables such as wind, solar, and hydro, nuclear power must be a major contributor toward reducing the world’s dependence on increasingly scarce and perilously political supplies of oil and gas. Domenici presents a compelling case for nuclear power’s role in providing clean and safe electricity to stem the tide of global warming and environmental disaster.
