The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has docketed Abilene Christian University’s (ACU’s) Nuclear Energy eXperimental Testing Lab construction permit application, placing it under formal regulatory review. The application is the first for a new research reactor in more than 30 years and the first-ever for an advanced university research reactor. “This is a significant achievement, and I am very proud of the NEXTRA team for producing a quality application, sufficient for NRC docketing,” said Dr Rusty Towell, director of NEXT Lab and professor in the Department of Engineering and Physics.
