Advanced Reactor Technologies (ART)  is a national program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Here at INL, work is focused specifically on developing a High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR), which will offer enhancements in safety and efficiency. This HTGR has a modularized design, which enables plants with larger power demands to simply build more than one module.  Modularization requires no extra design work and increases safety and efficiency by allowing a singular module to run or be stopped at any given time in the event of an incident or a changing need for power. HTGRs also produce process heat during operation, making them ideal for location near other industrial plants that could put this process heat to use in their own production and thus reduce the need for non-renewable energy sources upon which these plants currently rely.
