Nuclear energy as a hidden gem: a conversation with Argonne nuclear chemist Andrew Breshears

Nuclear energy as a hidden gem: a conversation with Argonne nuclear chemist Andrew Breshears

Argonne National Laboratory’s Andrew Breshears explains the benefits of nuclear energy in an interview with NewsWise.

The C3 Take
  • Nuclear energy is our largest source of carbon free energy, but is often misunderstood by the public.
  • In addition to its ability to produce clean power, nuclear is also safe and reliable.
  • As we look to address climate change and reduce CO2 emissions we should embrace nuclear power.

“For advanced reactors, we’re looking at using new material to transport that heat, like liquid metals, because metal conducts heat really well, better than water. We can also use salts [in molten form] to circulate the heat through the system. Those are just two examples of six different advanced reactor concepts that are being proposed right now.”
