The Integral Molten Salt Reactor and the Benefits of Having a Liquid Fission Reactor

By Hackaday

Although to most the term ‘fission reactor’ brings to mind something close to the commonly operated light-water reactors (LWRs) which operate using plain water (H2O) as coolant and with sluggish, thermal neutrons, there are a dizzying number of other designs possible. Some of these have been in use for decades, like Canada’s heavy water (D2O) reactors (CANDU), while others are only now beginning to take their first step towards commercialization.

Terrestrial Energy’s molten salt reactor passes key review

By Energy Monitor

Canadian nuclear energy company Terrestrial Energy has made a breakthrough in the commercial development of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) power plant, after the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) completed Phase 2 of the pre-licensing Vendor Design Review (VDR). The development marks the first advanced, high-temperature fission technology to complete a review of this type, bringing the small modular reactor (SMR) tantalisingly close to market.
