Simon Irish, CEO of Terrestrial Energy USA Ltd., an affiliate of Terrestrial Energy Inc., said his company was a recipient of a GAIN voucher to study properties of molten salt at high temperatures to help with testing of the company’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor in preparation for a U.S. application. He said the GAIN program has helped open doors and leverage labs’ resources.
“There’s a tremendous amount of knowledge, expertise, experience and equipment that sits at the national lab level,” Irish told Bloomberg BNA. “Making those resources available through a program like the GAIN program is very helpful.
