A representative from a company looking to change nuclear energy will speak to the American Nuclear Society's Eastern Washington Chapter on Tuesday.
Roger S. Reynolds, senior technology adviser for Bellevue-based TerraPower LLC, will speak at the Shilo Inn, 50 Comstock Drive in Richland.
TerraPower was started in 2006 by a group including Microsoft founder Bill Gates. It is seeking to develop a safe, affordable, clean and secure nuclear power source.
The company's reactors, which use depleted instead of enriched uranium, are designed to go 40 to 60 years without refueling.
