Idaho National Laboratory and the National University Consortium are organizing a virtual workshop series focused on topics related to the Fission Battery Initiative. The initiative envisions Developing technologies that enable nuclear reactor systems to function as batteries (see attached invitation for more details on the initiative).

These workshops will provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss the research and development needed to establish technologies that can fully achieve battery-like functionality for nuclear energy systems.

The topics and dates of each workshop are listed below, along with a link to register. The final agenda and list of speakers will be released closer to the workshop dates.

Registration is required to attend; please note that each day requires a separate registration. Upon registering you will receive a calendar notice via email which includes the live link for the virtual meeting.

Today, knowledge on MOX fuel behavior in fast neutron reactors comes mainly from feedback on SFRs that have operated in the past in Europe, USA, Japan and are still in service in Russia, India and China. The GENERATION-IV systems (SFR, GFR, LFR, FSMR...) with the associated fuel cycle strategy have been chosen to face the requirements of safety, non-proliferation, sustainability and waste minimization. This completion is possible thanks to the flexibility of fast neutron systems: they offer the possibility of using plutonium and uranium coming from spent fuel, making the best use of resources while reducing waste. Thus (U,Pu)O2 has proved to be the most ready candidate to achieve these performances in reactor and
during the fuel cycle. Mox fuel is suitable for exemple for multirecycling, isogeneration, burning or breeding plutonium through adjustment of Pu concentration. Taking into account a wide range of fuel composition (Pu content: 20 to 45%), irradiation conditions and applying the safety criteria, we will present the state of the art on MOX fuel for GENIV systems with respect to knowledge and qualification.
The knowledge on (U,Pu)O2 will be presented under the aspects of material properties and fuel behavior under irradiation with post irradiation examinations and modelling. The methodology of MOX qualification will be will be detailed with TRL (Technological Readiness Level) scale evaluation and the need to extend the qualification area in order to cover all design, composition and situations described above.
The support of the international organizations (GIF, OECD/NEA, IAEA, EURATOM) to scientific and technological issues will be assessed.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) 33rd Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) will take place virtually on March 8-11, 2021. The RIC, NRC’s largest public meeting, brings together nearly 3,000 participants from more than 30 countries representing interested stakeholders from other government agencies, industry, international organizations, and the general public. The RIC, sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation and the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, offers an illustrious technical program featuring experts from across the agency as well as speakers from industry, academia, and the community. Throughout the virtual conference, attendees may participate in dynamic sessions featuring panelists addressing a broad range of topics of interest. To compliment the technical program, interactive digital exhibits will be available for participants to view at their leisure. Attendees also have an opportunity to participate in virtual tours of the NRC Operations Center to round out their overall conference experience. Join us to explore the Power of Possibility!
Registration information will be coming soon! Visit NRC’s RIC homepage periodically for updates.
