ENGINEERING THE FUTURE OF ENERGY
CLEAN, CHEAP, SAFE, AND ABUNDANT ENERGY USING THORIUM
Radically changing nuclear power
Radically changing nuclear energy technology is a rapidly growing industry and research area dedicated to developing fundamentally new types of nuclear reactors. Such reactors are targeted to solve problems of existing nuclear reactor technology, including waste, risk, scalability, and cost.
Molten salt reactors and Thorium
At Copenhagen Atomics we believe that reactors using molten salt as coolant (MSRs) and thorium as an abundant and cheap energy source is the best solution for completely changing nuclear energy and energy production in general. A thorium based molten salt reactor is small, efficient, safe, and with an optimal waste profile including the burning of nuclear waste from current plants.
Thorium energy and the environment
Nuclear reactors don’t produce gaseous pollution such as CO2, SO2, and NOx or particulate matter pollution. This occurs at a massive scale with fossil fuels and is the main cause of our largest environmental problem today. Furthermore, thorium MSRs can deliver a scalability and cost proposition superior to any existing energy technology, including current nuclear, renewables and fossil fuels.
