Oklo Aurora

Oklo Inc. is hoping to create a commercial microreactor using INL nuclear waste material as fuel.

On Monday, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission accepted Oklo Inc.’s application for review for its proposed nuclear reactor on Idaho National Laboratory property. The California-based company is now one step closer to moving forward with its plans to develop the first commercial reactor to generate power while reducing nuclear waste. The application was first submitted in March.

The next step will be to await the NRC’s review. The review will be a multistep process involving public meetings, audits and safety testing.
