SOLVING THE WORLD'S ENERGY PROBLEM AND REDUCING THE EXISTING NUCLEAR WASTE
Copenhagen Atomics uses thorium molten salt technology. Did you know that 1kg of Thorium costs approximately 50€ and can produce enough energy to provide 5000 households with electricity for 1 year? We plan to build a Waste Burner, which will reprocess the nuclear waste from the existing power plants and produce affordable and sustainable energy.
Copenhagen Atomics is based on a funding model where people earn shares in the company by contributing their expertise and working hours. Due to the high level of uncertainty in the initial phase, early investors of time and money are entitled to a significant risk bonus. We need substantial public funding and in return we will setup a charity foundation to return most of the capital gains back to the society.
We have a shared long-term goal to build at least one 40″ container-size molten salt reactor each day. We recognize that the technology could have a profound influence on our society. Its public acceptance is essential. Therefore we use the Copenhagen Thorium Energy Meetup to share knowledge, discuss and learn how to tackle potential problems in the best way, and recruit team members.

What's new in the world on thorium energy?
Since thorium energy is becoming a part of the political agenda in Denmark at the moment, we decided to compile a list of its pros and cons. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments and share this with your friends and colleagues. Good things about thorium molten salt reactors (TMSR) No greenhouse gas[…]
There is enough thorium in this in every country of the planet to provide its citizens with inexpensive energy for 1000 years. In the video below Thomas Jam Pedersen will take you on the journey of discovering great potential of thorium energy, from the moment he heard the fact above and to today, when he is[…]
On the 4th of February 2016 IDA Future Technology (IDA Fremtechnologi) held a symposium on thorium and molten salt reactors Thorium: Nuclear Power v.2.0. This was the first in 2016 thorium energy public event in Denmark. The tickets have been sold out two weeks before the event, and with the waiting list full of[…]
Europe’s expertise in nuclear science and engineering will take thorium technology forward, John Laurie
This is part 2 of our conversation with John Laurie, author of the biggest blog on thorium energy in France. Now we are talking about countries’ and regions’ role in advancing the thorium energy technology, important players on the market, sharing information on production and research and development costs for molten salt reactors and thoughts[…]
IDA Future Technology (IDA Fremtidsteknologi) of the Danish Society of Engineers invites for the upcoming symposium on thorium and molten salt reactors. The event will take place on 4 February 2016 in Copenhagen. You can register HERE.
In summer we met with the author of the biggest blog on molten-salt reactors in France, John Laurie. In early 2012, the British engineer living in France, watched a TED talk about thorium and molten salt reactors by Kirk Sorensen. Like most people his first thoughts were “this is too good to be true”. But[…]
Copenhagen Atomics meets Danish politicians to talk about thorium energy. You can join the hearings too
Copenhagen Atomics is participating in the Parliamentary Hearings on “Thorium – the near future’s green energy” that will take place on Friday 27 November 2015 in Landstingssalen at Christiansborg, Copenhagen. The company will have a chance to present its current projects and plans for the future, in particular the idea of building nuclear waste burners[…]
Suggest a topic that interests you or become a speaker yourself! We are happy to see that the Thorium Energy Copenhagen Meetup is growing. We attract more and more people who are interested in the topic of Thorium and MRS energy. For all this time we were trying to make the Meetup more exciting by[…]
Thomas Steenberg is starting as a new Managing Director at Copenhagen Atomics from 1 November 2015. Until now Thomas has been with the company for over a year as a part of the Chemistry group. “ I am happy to take over this position. I believe that Copenhagen Atomics is a great project that can[…]
Cargo ships powered by Thorium energy? Read more about the idea in the new blog post by Thomas Jam Pedersen in Ingeniøren,17 July 2015. (In Danish). I 1912 sejlede et stolt skib ud fra Københavns havn. Det var MS Selandia, hun var det første fragtskib i verden som benyttede den nye dieselteknologi. Ivar Knudsen[…]
