Washington D.C. In the month of May, the NIA team worked hard to prepare for the publication of "Catalyzing Commitments of Advanced Nuclear Energy Projects," by Steve Greene. 

The team attended NEI's Nuclear Energy Policy Forum and had an Op-ed published in the National Interest on uranium enrichment. 

May was an exciting month for nuclear energy with Congress passing a Russian Uranium Import ban which unlocked $2.7B to expand US nuclear fuel productions.
