Weather will not affect LFTRs output

Weather in France slows nuclear power production We’ve passed the tsunami test, the earthquake test and now the weather test. I’m half joking but seriously I keep discovering more reasons to switch to LFTRs. France never embraced Molten Salt Reactors fully but did experiment. Look at how they missed out. Weather conditions would not affect…

Thorium Molten Salt Reactor covered in Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal wrote this on Thorium MARCH 19, 2011 …Does a Different Nuclear Power Lie Ahead? By MATT RIDLEY Might the Fukushima accident eventually create a chance for the nuclear industry to “reboot”? In recent years some have begun to argue that solid-fuel uranium reactors like the ones in Japan are an outdated…

Thorium MSR in China

Kirk Sorensen’s EFT page: Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (TMSR) is now being developed in China and here is Charles Barton’s Post China starts LFTR Development Project I’m sure Kirk Sorensen and Charles Barton had mixed emotions when they learned that China was building a TMSR. Details of the design are not available. For newcomers, this…

Possible billion dollar return from one tonne of Thorium

Kirk Sorensen provided this fascinating look at what a LFTR could do in the not so distant future: Each metric tonne of thorium consumed in a LFTR could produce: 9900 GWe*hr of electricity (at 45% conversion efficiency) up to 15 kg (8400 watts*thermal) of Pu-238 for NASA space missions 20 kg of molybdenum-99 for medical…

Furukawa Fuji and Mini-Fuji Business Plan

Charles Barton introduces more on the IthEMS business plan from Dr. Kazuo Furukawa This company has visited England and the US in a string of presentations to ask for 300 million to jump start their own innovation to the Thorium Molten Salt Reactor. The Mini-FUJI targets shipping and the FUJI targets base load electricity. They…

THORIUM: A Tipping Point in History

This blog form Environauts.com covers background about how Thorium is getting a second chance, how it almost got passed over as an energy source. Sometimes profit and fear reinforce each other even at the expense of what’s good for the planet. THORIUM: A Tipping Point in History From the same blog more details about Thorium…

Recycle or Reprocess?

“Recycle” adds a new twist to explain a special kind of reprocessing to remove proliferation risk. And the LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) is the answer. The Molten Salt Reactor testing was proven highly effective back in the 1960’s but back then they wanted more nuclear bombs not less. Now we’re moving in a pro-nuclear…

Interdependent Reactors Are the Fastest Route to 2020 Energy Independence says Kirk Sorensen

Slightly Condensed version of Kirk Sorensen’s talk at the Thorium Energy Alliance Conference (After careful reading I found it difficult to shorten – The parallel interdependent reactors is the most interesting and the fact that meeting a 2020 date by doing so is very exciting given that Bill Gates has a much longer deadline with…

  • 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]
