Is nuclear green?

18 July 2015, 9.00 AM - 19 July 2015, 5.00 PM

Stall next to the M-Shed, Bristol Harbourside

The University of Bristol's Cabot Institute and the Interface Analysis Centre would like to encourage public debate and discussion on the topic of nuclear energy and its role in the UK, by asking the question - is nuclear green?

Our family friendly, educational and interactive stand will be addressing three key nuclear topics: energy, waste disposal and health. We want to dispel some nuclear myths, explore the science behind nuclear reactors and demonstrate the principles of radioactive waste disposal.

The event runs from Saturday 18 July - Sunday 19 July.  Cabot Institute scientists will be on hand to answer any of your burning questions around nuclear energy.  

This event is free to attend, no booking required.

About the Interface Analysis Centre

The Interface Analysis Centre is a materials research group based within the School of Physics at the University of Bristol. A large proportion of the work that we do is on behalf of the nuclear energy community, where our research is aimed at furthering the current understanding of nuclear material properties to ensure safe, long term storage for nuclear waste. Our partnership with EdF has lasted many years, and the company is kindly sponsoring our stand in the M-shed.
