21st Century Tech: Integral Molten Salt Nuclear Reactors Could be Deployed in the Next Decade

From 21st Century Tech:

Small molten salt nuclear reactors may become a part of the energy mix by the mid-2020s if Terrestrial Energy has its way. The company, based in Oakville, Ontario, just received $10 million in a new funding round to continue development of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®).

The goal, to deploy an IMSR® sometime in the 2020s, demonstrating the utility of the technology for both on and off power generation. Each reactor costs no more than a coal-fired power plant but produces zero emissions. The price tag is considerably less than any nuclear power plant in operation today.
