The United States Nuclear Power Industry is “reawakening”. This is evident with increased attention being placed on nuclear power by federal agencies and the recent application for 30 new plant construction permits. On May 3, 2007, TMS co-sponsored a Materials Information Luncheon (MIL) with the American Nuclear Society and ASM International to further the discussion of materials needs for next generation nuclear power plants. The session was held for members of Congress and staffers in Washington, D.C., providing a perspective on materials demands and challenges related to the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership.

A short summary of the session is provided that contains links to the following presentations:

Harold MacFarlane, "On the Road to Global Nuclear Energy Expansion: Economic and Environmental Needs."

Gary Was, “Materials: The Bridge to Future Nuclear Power."

Steve Zinkle, “Fuel Systems for Future Generations of Nuclear Power”.
