Manchester University scientists have revealed how arsenic molecules might be used to ‘fish out’ or clean up the most toxic elements from radioactive nuclear waste. This could be a breakthrough that could make the decommissioning industry even safer and more effective. If successful the method may reduce the public relations tension in fission driven nuclear […]






Oregon State University (OSU) chemistry researchers have a new high potential technique that more safely and efficiently extracts or separates uranium, a key part of the nuclear fuel cycle. The new technique uses soap-like chemicals known as surfactants to extract uranium from an aqueous solution into a kerosene solution in the form of hollow clusters. […]






NuScale Power is a step closer to seeing its nuclear reactor built in eastern Idaho. Having completed a 12,000-page design application for the federal regulator the Nuclear Regulatory Commission the firm expects to deliver the document describing the first-of-its-kind small modular reactor design tomorrow, Thursday, in Washington, D.C. Nuscale Power is the first of several […]






An international team of scientists suggests that we must ramp up energy production using nuclear power if we are to succeed in warding off the worst effects of greenhouse gas emissions on climate change. (Or we can simply take the risks of natural gas supplies driving electricity prices sky high when the price cycle turns […]






Terrestrial Energy Inc. (TEI) announced that it has entered into an initial collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) less than a month after announcing entering into a Letter of Intent with the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL). The Letter of Intent is for the provision of research and development services on commercial terms to TEI […]
