THORIUM REACTOR TECHNOLOGY LIBRARY

Liquid fuels are easier and safer to handle.

The Molten Salt Thorium reactor is a breakthrough technology which, for 40 years was not carried forward. There are now 5 separate projects around the world.

We have little to say here about the Indian use of Thorium which is just to stick some in a PWR to breed U-233 and burn it. The approach has none of the advantages of the MSR, except that Thorium needs no enrichment step - there is only one isotope, Th-90, left on the planet.

New reports and publications can be accepted through the
Rapid Publishing service on EfN Square.

Further services are in development for this Sub-Library.
