Nuclear News Update from Dan Yurman

Critically important article by Dan Yurman exposing how the US NRC is obstructing the rational evaluation and licensing of new reactor designs

Small modular reactor designer NuScale is revving up for renewed activity, with new financing coming in. NuScale was stalled in its quest to build SMRs when its initial financing entity -- through no fault of or involvement by NuScale -- was caught in a pyramid scheme and prosecuted.
NuScale is already putting that episode behind it and is ready to promote its SMR design again. Unfortunately -- due to Obama NRC obstructionism -- NuScale may be forced to go overseas for licensing and production, like TerraPower and Hyperion.
