Kirk Sorensen Videos 1-Train ride from Geneva 2- LFTR Strategy for FLIBE Energy

These were shot by Gordon McDowell and his team at the ThEC13 (Thorium Energy Conference 2013) in Cern, Geneva.
The first video of Kirk is just two days after the conference began. It gives some insights into what themes are prevalent at the conference and some of Kirk’s reactions to talks by other speakers.

This is the main Geneva Talk by Kirk for FLIBE Energy “LFTR Development Strategy”

    Fascinating stuff! I hope this can be approved by the NRC. Will it be, “Good Enough For Government Work.”

    The LFTR is graphite moderated. Chernobyl was graphite moderated. Chernobyl burned like a coal plant. The LFTR will run very hot. Will the graphite burn? Perhaps a Carbon Dioxide inerting system will be needed. Since it is nuclear you’ll need 2 of them, an A train and a B train in case one doesn’t work. You’ll also need to test it once a month or so.

    N Reactor at Hanford was graphite moderated. They shut it down after Chernobyl.

    Kirk Sorensen is a great presenter, a great salesman. This is very much needed today because selling nukes to a US audience will be worse than selling icecubes in the Arctic.

  • Quick Facts: [Thorium Element 90 in periodic table] [Burns up fuel much more efficiently than traditional reactors] [leaves barely any waste behind] [3 x more abundant than uranium] [MSRs run at high temp in liquid molten mixture of fluoride - heat useful for purifying water] [looks like blue water] [no pressure needed] [much safer because of passive safety] [Less expensive to build because it is smaller and easier to build with no pressurized containment needed] [can run without water therefore good for dry and remote locations][molten salt is very stable]
