About ASME's Nuclear Engineering Division

The ASME Nuclear Engineering Division (NED) focuses on the design, analysis, development, testing, operation and maintenance of reactor systems and components, nuclear fusion, heat transport, nuclear fuels technology and radioactive waste. Today, dozens of companies are ready to build and operate the next generation of reactors that can provide CO2 free power and be a part of the climate solution.

Why Small and Micro Reactors?

CO2 Free | Readily Available | The Future is HAPPENING
Here are the facts: Nuclear power has provided the United States and the world with a CO2 free source of electric power for the last half century. In 2021, nuclear power provided 778 million megawatthours, providing 19% of total U.S. electricity generation, and about half of all clean energy generation.

Today, dozens of companies are developing new, smaller, easier to site and construct nuclear power plants. They are ready to put this high availability source of clean power to work for the US and the world to help address the climate challenge. With these companies looking to build today, we have to make sure that industry and policy are aligned. The ASME CARD Conference is the best place to get the latest and greatest information on this exciting market and stay abreast of this rapidly developing technology.

Building and scaling nuclear power in the U.S. and the world will only happen if industry works together and understands how these new reactor technologies can do so much more than provide clean electricity. So, ask yourself, how can you or your company become a part of this next boom market? Apply your skills and services to this high technology industry and expand your portfolio? Don’t be left behind and let your competition get ahead of you!

About ASME

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries. For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity assessment programs, training courses, and journals.

ASME also produces nearly 40 international conferences. These industry-leading events feature advanced research and technical content spanning a range of industries impacted by mechanical engineering, including energy production, energy sources, advanced manufacturing, and engineering sciences.
