Integral Molten Salt Reactor®: Carbon-free, low-cost, high-impact. Flexible and resilient
IMSR® plants capture the advantages of Generation IV fission technology: They are safe, reliable, carbon-free and low-cost. They are today’s alternative to fossil fuel combustion. Like all nuclear power plants, IMSR® plant operations are nearly emissions-free. They produce thermal energy at high temperature for near 50 percent game-changing efficiency improvement and have many industrial uses. With that flexibility and those economics, IMSR® plants are a powerful tool to drive economic growth, energy security and achieve net-zero quickly.
IMSR®® power plants are a clean and cost-competitive alternative to burning fossil fuels.
In addition to electricity, IMSR®® power plants produce clean, high-grade heat, can load-follow and are the clean power partner for variable renewables.
