Bringing the Back-End to the Forefront: Looking Ahead to the Future Nuclear Fleet

Join Stimson’s Nuclear Safeguards Program for a presentation of its latest working paper exploring how emerging or “advanced” reactors will differ from the current fleet in spent fuel disposal, processing, and nuclear safeguards.

In this webinar, Rowen Price introduces her findings and, in discussion with James Casterton and Andrew Worrall, examines how these reactors will disrupt conventional spent fuel management and international safeguards.
