- Louis Qualls, Reactor Technology Research and Development Lead
Innovation is needed in the nuclear industry, and it will come in the form of inherently safe reactors that are thoroughly understood prior to construction; that are assembled using modern, low-cost techniques; and that are operated, monitored, and controlled with greater accuracy and precision. Molten salt reactors (MSRs) offer the potential to revolutionize nuclear power. The Department of Energy has begun a formal campaign to examine MSRs as candidate advanced reactors beginning in FY 2018. The challenges to be addressed and the plans to address them will be discussed.
Refreshments will be served.
