16 ADVANCED NUCLEAR | DEVELOPER GENERAL ATOMICS General Atomics has been at the forefront of innovation in nuclear energy since the 1950s. We continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in advanced nuclear reactors while helping to sustain our current reactor fleet and spinning off advanced material technologies that have the potential to enhance public safety and well-being. GA's TRIGA® research reactors are some of the most successful reactor designs in history. GA is building on its experience with TRIGA® in developing the next generation of advanced fission reactors, such as the innovative Energy Multiplier Module (EM2), an advanced high temperature helium-cooled fast reactor, producing 265 MWe of power per module at a net efficiency of 53%. EM2 employs cutting-edge advances in materials science to address the four core challenges facing nuclear energy – safety, waste, cost, and non- proliferation. It can be powered by spent nuclear fuel, operated up to 30 years without refueling, and first demonstrated at small scale (50MWe). GA is developing silicon carbide (SiC) composites for Accident Tolerant Fuel cladding and EM2 reactor components. Innovation technology solutions are underway for specialty nuclear fuels, radioactive waste remediation, production of medical isotopes, and advanced materials for extreme environment applications.
