Waste nuclear heat could help revive UK commercial greenhouse usage – report

An interdisciplinary team led by Dr Anita Crompton and funded by NERC, has been investigating the feasibility of using waste nuclear heat to decarbonise and stimulate a reversal in the decline of commercial greenhouse use in the UK. This waste heat could provide the low carbon, low-cost heating needed by greenhouse growers to improve the economics of operations. It could also allow an expansion of edible horticulture, which could benefit the industry, UK consumers and the environment.

New particle sizer is ready for use at the NFI Labs

A new particle sizer is ready to use at the Nuclear Futures Institute of Bangor University! The Horiba LA-960V2 is a laser scattering particle size distribution analyser. Our acquisition of the particle sizer was made possible because of an EPSRC grant Simon Middleburgh received to build the new Bangor University Fuel Fabrication Facility (BUFFF) - a new NNUF User Facility.
