Niowave develops advanced nuclear reactor concepts to meet the nation’s energy, security, and environmental needs. This includes novel nuclear fuels and materials required to withstand high-temperature, high corrosion, and high-radiation environment.
Implementing a closed-loop nuclear fuel cycle provides long-term sustainability to nuclear energy and decreases proliferation risks.
A low-enriched uranium subcritical testbed provides fast neutron fluxes, mimicking a fast reactor, and thermal neutron fluxes to academic researchers, national laboratories, government, and private industry.
A lead-bismuth eutectic corrosion test station operates at temperatures up to 700 °C with peak flow velocities capable of exceeding 5 m/s.
