State Energy Offices and state utility regulators are exploring ways to plan for the growth of advanced nuclear over the next decade to harness the clean energy, grid reliability, economic development, and other benefits new nuclear generation can provide. Understanding how advanced nuclear reactors will address and account for nuclear waste and safety is a vital consideration for these planning processes. During this webinar, participants will learn about the characteristics of spent fuel produced by advanced reactors and prospects for reprocessing, and receive an update the NRC’s new SMR emergency planning zone rule.
