Next-gen reactors will enhance safety and sustainability

In the College of Engineering's latest Medium blog post, Nuclear Engineering Professor Shripad Revankar discusses next-generation reactors, known as Generation IV, and how they can be integrated with renewable generating sources, are less expensive than their predecessors, burn nuclear waste as an energy resource, and are “walk-away” safe. The most likely Generation IV reactor to be commercialized is the Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR), and a Purdue team has proposed novel experimental research with the goal of developing a scaled experimental facility to study a VHTR building response in the event of a depressurization accident.
