  • The remarks of S. D. Bechtel, Jr., President, Bechtel Corporation, cover the total energy picture at the conference. In summing the energy demand/supply gap, he concludes that serious deficiencies in domestic energy supplies exist today and are growing rapidly; that adequate reserves of energy are located within the United States; that oil and gas supplies are now being squeezed; and that continued growth in worldwide demand is anticipated. He identifies six major categories for highlighting our current dilemma: questioning accuracy of demand forecasts; are substantial undiscovered reserves still to be found; use of abundant supplies of other nations; are governmentmore » regulatory practices inhibiting adjustment to changing conditions; reconciling environmental protection with increased need for energy; and cost of increasing supplies. The author then outlines his program for directions for the future, followed by challenges that must be hurdled. (MCW)« less
  • The renaissance of nuclear energy for electricity and hydrogen production and process heat for other potential applications is moving ahead rapidly. Both near- and far-term roles are envisioned for this important energy technology, and each of these roles will have its own particular technical challenges and opportunities. Numerous power producers world-wide are actively considering the construction of new nuclear power plants for the production of electricity in the near-term. The U.S. Department of Energy has announced plans to develop both the next generation of nuclear power plants and the technology necessary to recycle used nuclear fuel. These exciting technologies willmore » bring novel challenges to their developers and designers as they push the knowledge base in materials utilization, high temperatures and pressures, extended operating cycles, and extreme operating environments. Development of the techniques and methods to interrogate, understand, manage and control these devices will be crucial to enabling the full extension of these technologies.« less

  • January 1, 1990, marked the 20th anniversary of the signing of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Since this law was enacted, numerous institutions have assisted federal agencies in the implementation of NEPA, including the preparation of environmental impact statements and environmental assessments. The Ninth Oak Ridge National Laboratory Life Sciences Symposium was dedicated to the celebration of this anniversary. The symposium was held October 24--27, 1989, in Knoxville, Tennessee. The intent of the symposium was (1) to review what has been learned while performing NEPA assessments, (2) to summarize the state-of-the-art in methods and approaches, and (3) to definemore » future opportunities and new approaches required to link high quality science to the decision-making process.« less
