The Microreactor Applications Research Validation and Evaluation (MARVEL) Project is the focus of the CAES Codebreaker webinar Sept. 1 at 3:30 p.m.
MARVEL entails the design, development, construction and startup of an Idaho National Laboratory (INL) test microreactor, funded by the Department of Energy via the DOE Microreactor Program. The project's goal is to establish an operational nuclear applications test bed that can generate combined heat and power to enable integration and R&D with end-user technologies, while allowing microreactor technologists to test next-generation control systems.
In the presentation, MARVEL's technical lead, Yasir Arafat, will provide an overview of the project and discuss how its potential to pave the way for the deployment of a new class of reactors.
The CAES Codebreaker webinar takes place on the first Thursday of the month. It provides a forum for students and researchers to address their work, communicate opportunities and challenges to a receptive audience, and increase dialogue among CAES affiliates.
