  1. Anonymous couldn't be more wrong. It is the other way around, thorium can be used almost 100% but uranium only about 10%.

    This company is not talking about pure thorium reactors but modifying existing uranium LWRs to add thorium and gain benefit by cheaper fuel. This is only a partial solution.

    A much better solution is LFTRs.

    Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactors were invented in the 1960s at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. They ran one for almost 5 years. LFTRs use cheap thorium, are inherently safe, do not produce long term radio-active waste and were abandoned because they are not suitable for making bombs. See:

    Although the principles are proven, there is still some research required for the best materials to have long 50 year plus life. This should be our highest priority to solve our energy and pollution problems.

  2. Yea, so we now have multi tons of spent thorium fuel instead of only a few tons of spent uranium fuel. Its horribly inefficient energy source in comparison to Uranium or Plutonium. You can still make weapons grade fissionable materials. Yes it would take you longer. So what. Those who are using nuclear reactors to make weapons won’t waste their time with thorium it will just be a front for that same reactor they convert to uranium/plutonium and obtain the fuel from some other country. The cat is already out of the bag(1945). You can’t put it back it. About time everyone figured it out.
