Presented by: Gregory Nichols

The development of SMR technology is at the forefront of nuclear research. SMRs have generated global interest, and potential future applications are a subject of international research directives. Project proposals include use of SMRs for desalination, process heat generation, biofuel conversion and military base installations. Furthermore, SMR safety systems reduce threats to public health; decrease the global stockpile of weapons-grade material and radioactive waste; and provide critical infrastructure support on military installations worldwide.
