RNE19: Is Nuclear Built for Climate Change? Dr. Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar Guests!
Thank you for joining us for Episode 19 of RadioNuclear! In this episode, we discuss the success the Chinese have had with the Hualong One reactor, the decommissioning of SEFOR, and the sale of Indian Point units to Holtec and what it means for the industry. We also talk about a recent Bloomberg article casting nuclear as being susceptible to climate change.
Today’s guest is Dr. Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar, a professor at Idaho State University. Her research focuses on the nuclear fuel cycle, including pyroprocessing, qualification, and fuel cycle modeling. She is also involved with waste minimization efforts for graphite moderated next generation reactors. She also teaches introductory nuclear engineering and radioactive waste management courses at Idaho State University.
