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…

Wired article just barely a year old about Thorium

The Wired Magazine article Uranium Is So Last Century — Enter Thorium, the New Green Nuke I remember when the author Richard Martin was lurking on the EnergyFromThorium forum researching the topic. Very good background article covers Kirk Sorensen’s early days with his first encounters with the ORNL masters and the book that taught him…

Slower Breeding at Modestly High Temperatures With Thorium. What's not to love?

Robert Steinhaus has a good overview of Nuclear Energy and recently he commented about the advantages of the Thorium LFTR on Secretary of Energy Steven Chu’s Facebook Wall and lays out the advantages and nicely summarizes. “All breeder reactors are not created equal (in terms of safety and cost). It is both safer and cheaper…

Barry Brooks Article and the Comments from Nov 2009

Carbon emissions and nuclear capable countries This is from Nov 2009 but very important for newcomers with a little bit of patience for the technical and political arguments in support of nuclear energy. It is time to come clean on the energy vs proliferation argument. The facts strongly support that weapons and energy belong in different…

It's about time. Bombs for fuel conversion in US. Better late than never.

World Nuclear News US MOX plant in South Carolina clears licensing hurdle. Ya one of many hurdles and more to come even though the site is nearly complete. Delays expected until 2016. It’s not clear what the real delays are. Construction or licensing or both? It’s also not clear who’s bombs are being converted to…

The pro-nukes need "to create a groundswell of public support" to succeed.

I have quoted DV82XL before since he has many insightful comments. This one was on Depleted Cranium 191 DV82XL Says: July 25th, 2010 at 11:52 am drbuzz0 said: I’m a bit more optimistic. The public opinion of nuclear energy in the US and many other Western nations is quite good and is rising. Unfortunately positive…

  • 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]
