Norcross, Georgia—Nuclear industry professionals and observers are invited to attend NAC International’s 39th Nuclear Fuel Management Seminar to be held April 18-21 in the Atlanta-Buckhead area. The seminar will provide an overview of the nuclear industry and is especially timely, given the renewed enthusiasm for nuclear power and growing interest in constructing a new generation of nuclear plants.

This highly successful colloquium has served as the foundation of global nuclear fuel cycle expertise for hundreds of industry leaders over many years. It brings together NAC’s expert consultants and industry professionals to address the topics and issues that are central to nuclear power’s long-term success. Topic coverage is broad, yet sufficiently in depth to allow veterans and newcomers alike to gain valuable insight and understanding. Opportunities for detailed discussion are available throughout the seminar and following each day’s sessions.

The presentations and topics begin with an overview of key nuclear industry business sectors, fuel cycle stages or components, and reactor operations, and close with a front-end focus on the uranium industry. The second day opens with more detail on the front-end of the fuel cycle and proceeds through fuel design, fabrication, and industry business details. The third and fourth days examine fuel cycle closure elements, including spent fuel transport, storage, and recycling/reprocessing. In addition, a special session lead by NAC’s Moscow office will provide an insider’s view of the role of former Soviet Union industries in the global nuclear fuel cycle. A detailed agenda is available at in the Seminars & Events section.

The seminar is always well-attended and is limited to about 25 people to ensure the necessary individual attention for in-depth analysis and discussion. It is offered twice annually in Atlanta, and a European version will be held in Switzerland in June.
