Nuclear power is a significant source of the energy that powers homes and industries in the United States and around the world. SwRI provides a variety of services to help regulators and industry ensure safety, quality, and environmental protection across the nuclear fuel cycle. Our services aid in preparation for uranium extraction and enrichment; nuclear fuel fabrication; nuclear power plant operations; and spent nuclear fuel transportation, storage, and disposal operations.
For this diverse range of activities, SwRI can marshal a broad array of applicable technical disciplines. These include nuclear, structural, mining, mechanical, and chemical engineering, applied mathematics, corrosion science, geology, geochemistry, and hydrology.
