USNRC Selects NUMARK to Support Review of TRISO-X Fuel Fabrication Facility

September 28, 2021 – The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has contracted with NUMARK to provide technical assistance to the NRC staff in evaluating the environmental impacts of a fuel fabrication facility planned by X-energy LLC.

TRISO-X, a subsidiary of X-energy, is expected to submit a license application to the NRC to construct, operate, and decommission a facility for production of tri-structural isotropic (TRISO) type fuel.

NUMARK's work on behalf of NRC will include developing an Environmental Impact Statement and Safety Evaluation Report chapter related to environmental impact and monitoring; assisting in consultation activities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act; and providing expertise for a potential adjudicatory hearing on the licensing action.

NUMARK will be supported in this effort by environmental specialists from Cardno, Inc., a global professional infrastructure and environmental services company. The period of performance for the work is through September 30, 2024.

NUMARK, founded in 1991, has provided technical support services to NRC since 2007. Besides its work for NRC, NUMARK supports public and private sector clients in the United States and around the world in the areas of nuclear safety, international development, environmental protection, and sustainable energy strategies.
