CNS Conference Paper: Fuel Cycle Flexibility of Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR®

The IMSR® is being developed at Terrestrial Energy as an SMR with an output of 190 [195] MWe of electrical production. The use of a graphite moderator and a highly thermalized neutron spectrum gives multiple advantages for standard operations. The IMSR® also offers future fuel flexibility including the ability to utilize spent LWR fuel without reprocessing but by conversion to fluoride in a dry process.

EPRI Report on the Role of Advanced Nuclear on Future Energy Markets in the US

EPRI’s findings suggest that for advanced nuclear to be deployed extensively in the US, new policies, innovation in technologies that significantly lower costs, and/or innovation in business models and markets to enable supplemental revenue streams, would be needed.

IAEA Status Report on Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR®

IMSR®: How It Works

The IMSR® uses a fundamentally different reactor technology that leads to distinctive commercial advantages.

IMSR® is Versatile

IMSR®-generated heat is ideal for many industrial processes, not just for electricity production.

IMSR® Total System Cost

IMSR® power plants are cost-competitive with fossil fuels and renewables.

Sustainability: “Silver Buckshot or Bullet: Is a Future ‘Energy Mix’ Necessary?”

Article in the journal Sustainability posits that timely deployment of advanced nuclear like the IMSR®—”perfectly capable of providing all the energy humanity needs for centuries”—could be the silver bullet needed for achieving aggressive Paris climate targets.

Energies: Nuclear Power Learning and Deployment Rates; Disruption and Global Benefits Forgone

Peer-reviewed article in the journal Energies finds that had the rate of commercial nuclear deployment in the late-1960s to 1970s been maintained to the present day, nuclear power could now be around 10 percent of its current cost and could have substituted for 69,000 to 186,000 TWh of coal and gas generation—thereby avoiding up to 9.5 million deaths and 174 Gt CO2 emissions.
