Despite their grand efforts, world leaders, policymakers and activists convening at the 27th Conference of the Parties, or COP27, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, are making scant progress finding ways to meet growing global energy needs while slowing climate change.
TerraPraxis Selects Terrestrial Energy Generation IV Nuclear Technology for the Repowering Coal Consortium
Oakville, Ontario; Charlotte, North Carolina; and London, United Kingdom – November 7, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy, an advanced nuclear technology development company, and TerraPraxis, an organization that innovates, designs, and accelerates scalable, equitable climate solutions, have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to cooperate on Repowering Coal.
Bethesda, Maryland, and Oakville, Ontario, Canada – November 1, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy has completed a regulatory evaluation of packaging and cross-border transportation of Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) nuclear fuel in collaboration with Orano, a global leader in the nuclear fuel cycle.
This work demonstrates that nuclear fuel packaging used by Orano today to service the nuclear industry is suitable for the transportation and supply of IMSR® fuel.

We focus a lot of attention on electrification and decarbonizing the electric grid, but it is only one piece of the decarbonization challenge.
Oakville, Ontario, Canada – August 31, 2022 –Terrestrial Energy has completed an evaluation of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor’s (IMSR®) nuclear material safeguards in collaboration with the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) with support from CNL’s Canadian Nuclear Research Initiative (CNRI).
“Safeguards” is an international regulatory framework administered in Canada by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and is verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) under international treaty arrangements.

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.
Agreement aims to accelerate deployment of IMSR® Generation IV nuclear plants for industrial, chemical and petrochemical applications
Oakville, Ontario, July 19, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy and DL E&C have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to cooperate in the development and accelerated deployment of the IMSR® cogeneration plant in the industrial sector.
DL E&C is a recognized leading global engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor and a Korean pioneer into global markets with a long track record of successful international projects.
