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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

Deep Isolation to license its waste disposal technology to Amentum
Deep Isolation announced that it has signed a memorandum of agreement with engineering services company Amentum to further the commercialization of Deep Isolation’s nuclear waste storage and disposal technology around the world. The initial targets for joint work include locations in Europe and the Pacific that represent a combined market for geologic disposal of spent fuel and high-level waste worth more than $30 billion, the company said.

This book describes many significant experiences over a period of about 50 years in the field of nuclear power–generated electricity. The first 25 years deal with the development, design, safety, manufacturing, licensing, and operations of light water reactors and particularly of General Electric (GE) boiling water reactors. That was also the time when perceptions about nuclear power changed and no new orders for nuclear power were forthcoming. The subsequent 25 years cover the formation and operation of engineering/management firm S. Levy Incorporated (SLI), which provided consulting services to the entire nuclear industry.
