Generation 4 IMSR Fission Technology, A Perfect Fit for Repowering Coal

By Simon Irish

Despite the world’s growing awareness of the scale of climate change and the immense challenge of mitigating it, coal is still a predominant source of power, comprising 27 percent of total global primary energy consumption in 2021, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy.

With its roughly 900 grams of CO2-equivalent per kilowatt-hour (gCO2/kWh) life cycle emissions, it is one of the most emissions-intensive forms of electricity generation.
