The US Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded nearly USD5 million to two separate cost-shared projects that aim to study the use of direct air capture (DAC) technology at nuclear power plants. The studies - one led by Constellation at its Byron plant, and the other led by Battelle Memorial Institute at Southern Company's Farley plant - ultimately aim to leverage the plants' carbon-free energy to remove CO2 from ambient air.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a request for proposals for the fabrication and testing of a prototype eight-axle railcar - known as Fortis - to carry used nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste (HLW). Fortis will form part of the DOE's rail transportation capability for such materials alongside the Atlas railcar and the newly designed Rail Escort Vehicle (REV), currently undergoing testing.

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Nuclear Energy said on 29 July that the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation (AMS) had recently completed testing of sensors for small light-water reactor systems. The performance data will be shared with US nuclear companies to improve sensor instrumentation for advanced light-water small modular reactors (SMRs). The data could also be leveraged to support other advanced reactor types cooled by gas, liquid metal or molten salt.
