EBR-I: Virtual, Online Tours Only This Summerhttps://gain.inl.gov/SiteAssets/Images/ebr-1-worlds-first-nuclear-power-plant.jpg
Experimental Breeder Reactor-I (EBR-I) typically welcomes visitors from around the world during the summer months. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the museum will not open its doors this year. Visitors can, however, experience the world’s first nuclear power plant through two different technologies: TravelStorys and online tours.

​Just as in all other industries, sustainability is vital to nuclear energy production. Recycling of nuclear fuel contributes to the environmental and social pillars of that sustainability because it simultaneously improves natural resources utilization and waste minimization. This webinar provides additional insight to the consequences of repetitive fuel recycling and compares selected reactors based on their neutronics performance in the closed Th-U and U-Pu cycles.

The Strategy to Restore American Nuclear Energy Leadership is a direct outcome from the efforts of the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group established by the President in his July 12, 2019 Memorandum on the Effect of Uranium Imports on the National Security and Establishment of the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group.

This comprehensive strategy includes policy  recommendations on Executive, Congressional, and regulatory actions that could be taken to enhance the positive attributes of nuclear power, revive capabilities of the uranium mining, milling, and conversion industries, strengthen U.S. technology supremacy, and drive U.S. exports, while assuring consistency with U.S. nonproliferation objectives and supporting national security.
