The Future of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle - Summary Report Briefing

Nuclear power is poised to grow quickly in some parts of the world and could grow significantly here in the United States. Key decisions are pending, however, on how to structure that growth. MIT has completed a 3-year study on the Future of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle to address two overarching questions: (1) What are the long-term desirable fuel cycle options and (2) What are the implications for near-term policy choices? The study co-chairs - Professor Ernest J. Moniz, Director of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) and Professor Mujid Kazimi, Director of the MIT Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems - and Dr. Charles Forsberg, Executive Director of the MIT Fuel Cycle Study discussed the findings and recommendations. The report is aimed principally at US government, industry, and academic leaders, but the study is carried out from an international perspective. The briefing took place 1:30 on Thursday September 16 at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, 1800 K Street NW, Washington D.C.
