The integral fast reactor (IFR, originally advanced liquid-metal reactor) is a design for a nuclear reactor using fast neutrons and no neutron moderator (a "fast" reactor).IFR would breed more fuel and is distinguished by a nuclear fuel cycle that uses reprocessing via electrorefining at the reactor site.. IFR development began in and the U.S. Department of Energy built a .

    Research in Small Watersheds. The U.S. Geological Survey initiated the Water, Energy, and Biogeochemical Budgets (WEBB) program in to understand the processes controlling water, energy, and biogeochemical fluxes over a range of temporal and spatial scales and to understand the interactions of these processes, including the effect of atmospheric and . A breeder reactor is a nuclear reactor that generates more fissile material than it consumes. Breeder reactors achieve this because their neutron economy is high enough to create more fissile fuel than they use, by irradiation of a fertile material, such as uranium or thorium that is loaded into the reactor along with fissile fuel. Breeders were at first found attractive .

This included over 20 recognized educational partners and 13 federal agencies that comprise the U.S. Global Change Research Program Partner agencies. How should we approach energy literacy. Energy Literacy looks at energy through the lens of natural science as well as social science.

Energy issues require an understanding of civics, history. The Department of Energy is working with universities, businesses and the National Labs to develop new, energy-efficient technologies while boosting. Thorium fuel cycle with recycled U‐ has been widely recognized having some contributions to improve the water‐cooled breeder reactor program which has been shown by a feasible area of breeding and negative void reactivity which confirms that fissile of U contributes to better fuel breeding and effective for obtaining negative void reactivity coefficient.

General Accounting Office.; United States. Energy and Minerals Division.] -- GAO was requested to respond to questions clarifying the information contained in a prior report about the Department of Energy's (DOE) breeder reactor program. The long history of the ETR began for this water-cooled reactor with its start up inafter taking only 2 years to build.

The Data Book has not been updated since Nuclear energy is the energy in the nucleus, or core, of an atom. Atoms are tiny units that make up all matter in the universe, and energy is what holds the nucleus together.

There is a huge amount of energy in an atom's dense nucleus. In fact, the power that holds the nucleus together is officially called the "strong force."Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity, but it must.

The Department of Energy's Fundamentals Handbooks were developed as training material for Reactor Operators. They provide the foundational knowledge needed to operate a nuclear plant.

The thermal breeder reactor, using thorium and uranium, has always been an attractive option. One extensive test of that type of reactor was the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment at Oak Ridge, an outgrowth of the aircraft nuclear program of the s (see Section ).
