About Terrestrial Energy
Terrestrial Energy is developing an Advanced Reactor based on its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR™) technology. The IMSR™ represents true innovation in cost and functionality. It will provide clean, convenient and cost-competitive heat for many industrial applications, including electric power provision and heat for industrial processes, such as chemical synthesis and desalination. The IMSR™ extends the applicability of nuclear energy far beyond its current footprint in on-grid electric power markets. It promises concurrently to increase industrial competitiveness and to drive deep and rapid global decarbonization of the primary energy system by displacing fossil fuel combustion across a broad industrial front. Using an innovative design and proven Molten Salt Reactor technology, the IMSR can be brought to global markets in the 2020s.
