Global leaders in nuclear innovation gather at SMR and Advanced Reactor Summit in Atlanta

Last month's announcement that the US DOE has granted a permit for a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) project within the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) site is part of the DOE's "ongoing commitment towards strengthening nuclear energy's role in America's low carbon future" according to Lynn Orr, Under Secretary for Science and Energy at the DOE.

It could lead to licensing and inspection by the US NRC for the design, construction, operation, and eventual decommissioning of an SMR at the selected site, the DOE says.

Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems' (UAMPS) Carbon Free Power Project, designed by NuScale, could therefore play host to the first SMR site within the US and is just one of a number of exciting developments in the industry this year.

With unprecedented momentum and backing, the leading players in the SMR community are gathering in Atlanta for the International SMR and Advanced Reactor Summit on 14-15 April 2016.

Bringing together 250 key decision makers from the industry, the conference has already confirmed attendance from the DOE, NRC, UAMPS, NuScale and INL amongst others to ensure that they hasten the deployment of this safe, reliable and carbon-free technology.

With top executives from the largest organizations representing the likes of China, Canada, Jordan, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, US and UK this is truly the global meeting point for the industry which will help delegates understand the limitless possibilities for SMRs and advanced reactors.

"This is the only annual venue for the international reactor community attended by all the major buyers, technology designers, service providers and regulatory bodies in the industry explains John Furness, Senior Industry Analyst at Nuclear Energy Insider

"It is here that delegates can network and develop a robust approach to tackle the biggest licensing, financing and construction challenges to drive these technologies towards their commercial deployment," says John.

The successful deployment of a SMR means being able to move away from fossil fuels and this has global implications for addressing climate change.

Helsinki (AFP) March 8, 2016
A "highly exceptional" surge in radioactivity detected over Finland's capital Helsinki was traced Tuesday to a company sharing a building with the headquarters of the nuclear regulator investigating the mystery. In a bizarre twist, nuclear safety regulator STUK said in a statement that caesium-137, a radioactive isotope of caesium, had been tracked to the basement and garage of the very same ... read more
