Terrestrial Energy Chief Technology Officer Dave Hill provides an update on IMSR® commercialisation in the U.S. and Canada at Oak Ridge National Lab’s 2020 Molten Salt Reactor Workshop.
Terrestrial Energy Response to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Article on Used Fuel from SMRs
In response to an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences article on waste from small modular reactors (SMRs) that included many inaccuracies about Terrestrial Energy and other developer’s SMR technologies as well as misleading conclusions about them, Terrestrial Energy has sent a letter to the PNAS highlighting its concerns.
Heat generated from an IMSR® Generation IV power plant is ideal for many industrial processes, not just for electricity production.
Rethinking Deployment Scenarios for Advanced Reactors: Scalable Nuclear Energy for Zero-Carbon Synthetic Fuels and Products
EPRI is exploring how the full potential of nuclear energy can be brought to bear on the intertwined challenges of meeting future global energy demands, maintaining or improving quality of life, and mitigating environmental degradation.
The United Nations Economic Council for Europe (UNECE) analyzed the lifecycle emissions of various generating sources and found that nuclear energy had the lowest. Life cycle assessment allows the evaluation of a product over its life cycle, and across a wide range of environmental indicators – this method was chosen to report on the environmental profiles of various technologies.
An assessment prepared by Hatch Ltd. of the economic impact for Terrestrial Energy’s small modular reactor power plant (IMSR®400) in Ontario
This animation shows the interior of the IMSR®400 power plant in the configuration proposed for the Darlington site. The IMSR®400 power plant uses twin Integral Molten Salt Reactors (IMSR®s), which operate at nearly 50 percent higher thermal efficiency than conventional reactors for better performance.
This animation shows the exterior of the IMSR®400 power plant in the configuration proposed for the Darlington site. The IMSR®400 has the capacity to generate 390 MW (net) of clean, reliable and carbon-free electric power using twin reactors and generators.
