NuCLEAR - A new clear podcast

  • Episode 7 - Small Modular Reactors (SMR)

    29 OCT 2023 · How many times have people told you that nuclear takes a long time and a lot of money to build? What if there was an alternative to the huge investment of a large nuclear reactor? Today we explore the economy of multiples in the context of nuclear industry: making smaller reactors and with a modular design. With this episode we conclude the first season of the NuClear Podcast! We will be back soon to tackle more riveting topics connected to nuclear technologies: fusion, medical applications, safety and much more. In the meanwhile, give us a feedback and suggest topics for the new season at nuclearpodcast@divercityeu.com
