HOW CAN WE PROTECT
THE ENVIRONMENT…

AND HAVE CLEAN AIR
IN OUR CITIES…

…WHILE MEETING OUR
GROWING ENERGY NEEDS?

IMSR® IS GAME-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY

Leading the way to a bright energy future.

IMSR®: Transformative Clean Energy Technology

To meet the increasing energy demands of global prosperity, while protecting the environment and the air in our cities that we breathe, we need a game changer.

Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR® Advanced Modular Reactor is that technology.
small and advanced modular reactors technology - integral molten salt nuclear reactor by Terrestrial Energy

Terrestrial Energy is developing revolutionary — not simply evolutionary — nuclear technology. The IMSR® uses completely different nuclear technology for its Advanced Modular Reactor — molten salt fuel instead of conventional solid fuel. With this proven approach, IMSR® Generation IV nuclear power plants are more affordable, cost competitive, and versatile than conventional nuclear power plants.

IMSR® technology can be brought to market quickly. IMSR® power plants can be built in four years and produce electricity or industrial heat at prices competitive with fossil fuels, while emitting no greenhouse gases.

The first IMSR® power plants are expected to come online in the 2020s.

IMSR® technology is today’s clean energy game changer.

Terrestrial Energy today announced the addition of Ontario Power Generation to its Nuclear Innovation Working Group. The working group is advising Terrestrial Energy during Phase 2 of its Vendor Design Review program, which is currently in progress, and on the development and deployment of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant.

Terrestrial Energy has been admitted to the Generation IV International Forum (GIF), currently the only private sector company with this status.

The GIF is a multi-national program established in 2001 to support co-operative research and development of next-generation nuclear reactor technologies.

Generation 4 nuclear reactors—including molten salt reactors now being developed by the Canadian firm Terrestrial Energy—are being designed to reduce energy poverty and push billions of the world’s poorest people towards prosperity.

This year’s top 10 list was curated by Bill Gates and includes “new-wave nuclear power,” which spans advanced fission and fusion technologies. Terrestrial Energy’s advanced fission Generation IV IMSR® technology has been cited as one of the “key players,” along with TerraPower which is developing another Generation IV technology.
