The current UNB Nuclear Group was founded in 1992 by Dr. Derek Lister, Professor Emeritus and Research Chair in Nuclear Engineering in UNB’s department of Chemical Engineering. Our membership in early 2019 consists of four technical support staff and ten graduate students, boasting a strong international presence. Our research interests range from the chemistry and corrosion of power system coolants to the fouling of heat exchanger circuits and the processing of used nuclear fuel.
Industry and Government Collaborations:
UNB Nuclear is funded by Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the CANDU Owners Group (COG) and collaborates extensively with other industry and government partners, both in Canada and internationally. Among our international partners are the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA) in Cadarache, France, and the Japan Energy Agency (JEA) in Tokyo, and we have commercial research ties with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in the US and Kurita Water Industries in Japan and Germany.
