Nuclear Engineering International: A Solution Worth Its Salt

At Terrestrial Energy, we believe our Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) can vastly expand nuclear energy’s capabilities. And because it is smaller, more economical and faster to build than traditional reactors, the Generation-4 IMSR® power plant opens new markets.
