    CAGW's Critical Waste Issues for the th Congress details 18 policy areas that require immediate attention, including the need for greater accountability and transparency. Policymakers have considered many of these recommendations in the past, and completely ignored others. But with more concern than ever focused on the size and scope of the federal government, it is . In recognition of new reactor designs and lessons learned from nuclear power plant operating experience, the ASME is updating the OM Code to incorporate improved IST provisions for components used in nuclear power plants that were issued (or will be issued) construction permits, or COLs, on or following January 1, (defined in the OM Code.

    Iran's nuclear program began in the s but was slow to progress. The United States supplied the Tehran Nuclear Research Center (TNRC) with a small 5MWt research reactor (TRR), fueled by highly enriched uranium (HEU), in In , the Shah unveiled ambitious plans to instMWe of nuclear power in Iran by the end of the century. UKRAINE (Updated ) PREAMBLE. This report provides information on the status and development of nuclear power programmes in Ukraine, including factors related to the effective planning, decision making and implementation of the nuclear power programme that together lead to safe and economical operations of nuclear power plants.

    Current U.S. electrical power projections for , based on utilities planning data (see Fig. ), show a reference capacity of gigawatts, of which GW will be from coal, GW from oil and gas, GW from nuclear, and GW from renewable and other (primarily pumped storage hydroelectric with some waste heat and process gases. With this major U.S.-Russia nuclear arms control agreement set to expire next year, Washington should coordinate with Moscow for a New START treaty .
