The American Nuclear Society (ANS) Annual Conference, to be held June 24-28 in Chicago, IL, will feature an embedded International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP 2012), ANS President Eric Loewen, PhD, announced today. "This conference brings together nuclear leaders from around the world to share best practices and advance international understanding of the latest advances in nuclear power plants," said Loewen.
ICAPP 2012 launches with the top leaders of nuclear utilities and companies discussing the current economic realities that make nuclear practical in some places around the world--and not so practical in other areas. These nuclear experts will share perspectives on the impact of changes in electricity demand, the comparative costs of power generation, disposal solutions for used nuclear fuel, and how the Fukushima-Daiichi accident affects views of new nuclear plants in the United States and around the world.
Speakers at the Opening Plenary on Monday, June 25 include:
In addition, ICAPP 2012 will feature technical sessions on coping with extended station blackout, advanced fuel cycle options and technologies, hybrid energy systems--coupling nuclear, renewable, and fossil energy systems-- and advanced reactor concepts. Participants will also learn potential outage impacts and improvements and materials and issues related to current and future reactor designs.
Loewen concluded, "ICAPP 2012 features international nuclear experts coming together to share the vision of a bright future made possible by clean, safe, and reliable electricity provided by the inner binding energy of the atom. As ANS President, I thank them for their technical leadership."
