Tech Talks: Small Modular Reactors and the Department of Defense

Presented by: Gregory Nichols, HDIAC S&T Advisor

Presented on: June 21, 2017

Taxonomy: Alternative Energy

Description: The development of SMR technology is at the forefront of nuclear research. SMRs have generated global interest, and potential future applications are a subject of international research directives. Project proposals include use of SMRs for desalination, process heat generation, biofuel conversion and military base installations. Furthermore, SMR safety systems reduce threats to public health; decrease the global stockpile of weapons-grade material and radioactive waste; and provide critical infrastructure support on military installations worldwide.
