US-Japan Roundtable - Annual Washington Conference
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Donald Wolf, Chairman and CEO of Advanced Reactor Concepts, LLC (ARC) represented ARC and made a presentation at the Annual Washington Conference of the US-Japan Roundtable, held December 14, 2017 in Washington DC. The program focuses on issues and opportunities in the civil nuclear area that are of common interest to the US and Japan. The program was sponsored by the Howard Baker Forum and the Baker Donnelson law firm.
Mr. Wolf reviewed the long, successful development history of sodium fast reactors and particularly the EBR-II, the prototype for ARC’s advanced small modular reactor called the ARC-100. He emphasized the ARC reactor’s cost competitiveness, its inherent safety and its potential to solve the problem of nuclear waste. And, he offered the product as an ideal energy source for Japan with its lack of fossil fuel resources, together with the Japanese public’s extreme concern about nuclear safety.
