T4  Emerging Issues in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle

In the next several years, the U.S. nuclear fuel cycle program will experience a number of changes, including the startup of new facilities, the implementation of international safeguards measures, and the consideration of advanced technologies, such as reprocessing.

A broad range of technical, regulatory, and policy issues confront stakeholders in this dynamic fuel cycle environment.  Representatives from the NRC, industry, and international groups will present important perspectives on the leading issues affecting fuel cycle facilities.
