Opportunities for small modular nuclear reactors to assist in decarbonizing Canada’s chemistry sector
November 21, 2023
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
CIAC is taking part in an important webinar toward the end of November and you’re invited!
As Canada works toward achieving its net zero ambitions, industries across the country are looking at a range of options to decarbonize or shift to alternative forms of energy and heat. The nuclear sector, and small modular reactors (SMRs) in particular, represents a unique opportunity for the Canadian Chemicals Industry to reduce emissions while at the same time ensuring the kind of sustainable, predictable power supply necessary to maintain competitiveness. But what exactly is an SMR? What are the benefits? How long until they come to market? And what are the practical steps toward the chemical industry using nuclear heat and power?
To help answer these questions and open up opportunities for further learning and collaboration, the Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA) and Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) are holding an expert webinar “Opportunities for Small Modular Reactors to assist in decarbonizing Canada’s Chemistry Sector” on 21 November at 1p.m. Eastern, moderated by CNA President and CEO John Gorman.
Join us to hear from key players in the SMR sector, including Westinghouse, Ontario Power Generation, Ultra Safe Nuclear Company, and X-Energy. Panelists will give an overview of their respective technologies, showcase projects that are coming to market in the next few years, and discuss the potential for these innovative technologies to support the decarbonization of the Chemicals Industry.
