Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences

Our Mission

The mission of the Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences Division (DESD) is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the optimal management of decommissioning and environmental sciences and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear and formerly nuclear installations, materials, facilities, and sites for the betterment of society. The target audience for this effort is the member of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

ANS-DDR Division Award Winners

Traditionally the former ANS-DDR Division has presented two awards at each of their DDR 'embedded topical' conferences or 'stand alone' conferences. The first of these awards were presented in 2005 at Denver at DDR2005 with subsequent awards in 2007 (Chattanooga), 2009 (Idaho Falls) and 2012 (Chicago). Planning is underway for the next cycle of awards which will be presented at the DRS2014 Conference in June 2014 in Reno. We are now soliciting nominations for each of these awards to be presented by what is now DES2014 in Reno! The details of the awards and nomination particulars can be found on the awards tab. The awards committee chaired by Jay Peters will review and select the winners from the nominations it receives by March 31, 2014.

Are you and your colleagues looking to won on, currently working on, or simple just interested in the nuclear decommissioning industry in some capacity.
