Good news for SOR...:-)... no more uranium...

Hot Work: Oregon State to test mock reactors

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) A new test facility under construction at Oregon State University could pave the way for next-generation nuclear technology that would do double duty, not only generating electricity but also producing hydrogen for fuel cells.

Work is under way on a small-scale simulator of a very high-temperature nuclear reactor, known in the industry as a VHTR. The $4.8 million research project, funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, is expected to come on line in April.

Like other reactor simulators at OSU's Radiation Center, this one will be heated by electricity rather than uranium. The only nuclear-fueled reactor on campus is a 1.1-megawatt research model, which is considered too small to pose any sort of meltdown risk.
