"Convert & burn" fast reactors offer the potential for advances in each of these areas without the specter of increased proliferation risk that accompanies breeder reactor concepts. An example is the Energy Multiplier Module (EM^2), a helium-cooled compact fast reactor that augments its fissile fuel load with either depleted uranium or used nuclear fuel. A novel physics design results in a convert and burn in-situ operating mode results in a core predicted to last 30 years without the need to add or shuffle fuel. The reactor design has been carefully optimized to achieve a safe, economically affordable and proliferation-resistant energy source.

Speaker: Robert Schleicher, Senior Physicist, General Atomics

Sponsored by the Nuclear Policy Talks series and the Institute for Nuclear Studies
