fuel cycle waste management fcwm mission
Fuel Cycle Waste Management (FCWM) Mission
  • Like ANS, the mission of FCWM is “the advancement of science and engineering relating to the atomic nucleus, and of allied sciences and arts."
  • Specifically FCWM deals with all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle including mining, enrichment, fuel fabrication, fuel design, reprocessing, storage, geologic repositories, waste processing, waste form testing, advanced fuel cycle evaluations, fissile material management, and national fuel cycle policies.
  • We are also home division for the Special Committee for Nuclear Nonproliferation.
