[en] Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) has always seen the need to carry research through its various stages to commercialization. This has required the transfer of technology from the AECL laboratories to the industrial contributors - reactor designers, electrical utilities, and manufacturers - using technical reports, symposia, invited industrial participation on technical committees, attachment of industrial staff to AECL design offices and laboratories, contract research, and AECL staff participation in the affairs of the Canadian Nuclear Association and other professional institutions. The two most important transfer techniques are attached staff and development contracts
[en] The methods of technology transfer from the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. to industry and electric utilities are discussed. Approximately 40 years of Canadian technology is just one advantage countries outside Canada gain when purchasing Candu systems. To promote a large programme of industrial research, AECL has a very large expenditure on industrial contract work, about $6 million on one typical year. Approximately 30 to 40 attached staff join AECL each year, and some new products have resulted from the technology transfer, eg. development of nuclear fuels to proven reliability, seamless Inconel and high quality bellows.

[en] Since 1978, Canada has been investigating a concept for permanently dealing with the nuclear fuel waste from Canadian CANDU (Canada Deuterium Uranium) nuclear generating stations. The concept is based on disposing of the waste in a vault excavated 500 to 1000 m deep in intrusive igneous rock of the Canadian Shield. AECL Research will soon be submitting an environmental impact statement (EIS) on the concept for review by a Panel through the federal environmental assessment and review process (EARP). In accordance with AECL Research's mandate and in keeping with the detailed requirements of the review Panel, AECL Research has conducted extensive studies on a wide variety of technical and socio-economic issues associated with the concept. If the concept is accepted, we can and should continue our responsible approach and take the next steps towards constructing a disposal facility for Canada's used nuclear fuel waste
[en] The article is a follow-up to the December 2015 article, 'The scientist women of the Montreal Laboratory'. The current piece outlines the involvement of other women involved in the Tube Alloys project between 1942 and 1946. It also updates information regarding two women (Muriel Wales and Ethel Kerr Steljes) cited in the previous article. The other women covered in the present paper are Alma Chackett, Elsie Murrell, Gertrude Blanch, and Elsie Graham.
[en] This paper traces the history of the Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. For 60 years AECL has contributed world class science and technology to Canada, while assisting Government on policy issues, enabling business innovation and technology transfer, and generating highly qualified workforce for Canadian industry.
[en] It is unlikely that CD based archives will work well for long term (over ten years) archives due to ever-changing PC software and upgrading of equipment. Stand-alone and proprietary software should be avoided for long term archival projects. Documents should be archived to multiple page TIFF or PDF file format for long term storage, to ensure that the complete document remains intact. Regular and ongoing inspections and assessment of long term record archives should be performed to ensure the readability, access and usability of records
[en] A collection of brief atricles describes the trends and developments in Canada's electric utilities for the 1980's. Generating stations planned or under construction are listed. The trends in technology discused at a recent Canadian Electrical Association meeting are summarized in such areas as turbine stability control, power line vibration control, system reliability, substations and transformer specifications. Developments in nuclear generation are discussed and compared on the world scale where Japan, for example, has the world's largest nuclear program. Progress on fusion is discussed. In Canada the electric utilities are receiving the support of the comprehensive nuclear R and D program of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. New innovations in utility technology such as street lighting contactors, superconductive fault limiters and demand profile analyzers are discussed. (T.I.)
