Microreactors: A case study in campus demonstration deployments
Date: Tuesday, November 8, 2022
Time: 4:00 pm
Location: McMaster University
Room: Chester New Hall 103
Dr. Caleb Brooks, Professor in the Department of Nuclear, Plasma and Radiological Engineering and Director of the Illinois Microreactor Research, Development and Demonstration Centre at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign will present a talk on campus deployments of microreactor technology.
The Center’s flagship project is their ongoing collaboration with Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) to deploy a Micro Modular Reactor (MMR) on the university campus as a Research and Test Reactor. This talk will overview the project goals, approach, status, and major drivers toward wide adoption of microreactors.
Join the Discussion:
- Advancements in microreactor research, technology and training.
- Making microreactors part of a clean and climate conscious energy future.
- Major drivers in the pathway towards wide adoption of microreactors.
