The National Engineering Center is hosting a public lecture on Small Modular Nuclear Reactors by Dr. Ahmed Abdullah on August 23, 2017. This lecture will be held at the Juinio Hall Audio-Visual Room.
Dr. Abdullah will talk about an overview of the technological, economic, environmental and social aspects of small modular reactors (SMRs). Commercialization of this technology is under way and is being explored for adoption in the Philippines and other countries. It is seen to be advantageous because of its siting flexibility, relative safety, and lower upfront cost.
