Optimizing CCR Waste Management through a Eurosilo Application

As utilities consider ways to store and transport coal combustion residue (CCR) materials, a new approach to consider is the Two-Eurosilo concept, which can significantly reduce operating costs and simplify the movement of CCR to a landfill.

The Case for Nuclear Power

Since 2013, eight U.S. nuclear power plants have announced plans to permanently shut down operations.

Innovations for Improved Gas Turbine Productivity

Inventors and scientists have been fascinated by the concept of turbine engines to create power even before Leonardo di Vinci sketched an early turbine idea in one of his famous notebooks.

Lines of Defense

I've subscribed to the NRC Blog for several years now, and I have to say that the agency does a great job selecting interesting topics and explaining them using simple language - while simultaneously reinforcing the NRC's independent oversight role.

Advancements in Duct Firing Technology

Advancements in gas-fired generation are allowing high efficiency and flexible operation of duct-fired plants for the first time.
