  • Putting the new in nuclear
    Ever since the beginning of the nuclear age, the peaceful use of atomic energy has revolved around the development and commercialization of water-cooled thermal nuclear reactors. Although those reactors have long generated a plentiful, carbon-neutral source of energy, they may soon no longer adequately meet America's needs. Argonne's expertise in designing a more resourceful and cleaner type of nuclear reactor has enabled enormous gains in the efficiency and safety of nuclear power.
