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. They believe the time is now to develop newer, smaller, easy to site and construct nuclear power plants and let this high availability source of CO2 free power help us solve our climate dilemma.


Why Small and Micro Reactors?

C02 Free | Readily Available | The Future is NOW

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. Last year alone nuclear power in the US provided 807.1 BILLION KW-hr of emission free power, which represented 55.2% of the total US emission free energy and avoided adding 528 Million Metric Tons of CO2 to the atmosphere.

The time is now to develop new, smaller, easy to site and construct nuclear power plants and put this high availability source of clean power to work for the US and the world to help solve our climate problem. We cannot afford to wait any longer. There is no better place to get the latest and greatest information on this exciting market and stay abreast of this rapidly developing technology than the ASME SMMR Conference.

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.
