Purpose of the Meeting: To provide an update on remediation activities at the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE). MSRE operated at Oak Ridge National Laboratory from 1965 to 1969 to test the concept of using molten, radioactive salt for commercial nuclear power reactors. During initial decommissioning activities it was discovered that the potential for nuclear criticality existed due to unstable carbon-fluoride compounds that had formed in the system. Remedial actions were initiated to mitigate risks at MSRE, and a Record of Decision was signed in July 1998 for removal of the fuel and flush salts.

Tentative Agenda:

  • Mike Jugan, DOE-Oak Ridge, will provide a historical review of the MSRE project and an update on current and planned activities.
