MIT Releases Report on the Future of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle

April 26, 2011

Nuclear power is poised to grow quickly in some parts of the world and could grow significantly here in the United States. Key decisions are pending, however, on how to structure that growth. MIT has completed a 3-year study on the Future of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle to address two overarching questions: (1) What are the long-term desirable fuel cycle options and (2) What are the implications for near-term policy choices? In this video, the study co-chairs - Professor Ernest J. Moniz, Director of the MIT Energy Initiative and Professor Mujid Kazimi, Director of the MIT Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems - join Dr. Charles Forsberg, Executive Director of the MIT Nuclear Fuel Cycle Study, and other members of the study group present and discuss the report's findings and recommendations. View the full report here.
