Ed will be part of a panel at an NRC hearing on spent fuel safety, starting at 9 a.m. on January 6.
UCS has long advocated that plant owners move spent nuclear fuel from crowded cooling pools to dry casks to better protect it, and Ed will be one of four external panelists addressing the commission during the session. Ed’s presentation is here.
Other panelists include Dave Heacock, president of Dominion Nuclear; Christine King, director of nuclear fuel and chemistry at the Electric Power Research Institute; and Gordon Thompson, executive director of the Institute for Resource and Security Studies. The presentations are here.
The hearing will be webcast live.
