Canada Embraces Nuclear Energy Expansion to Lower Carbon Emissions

“We don’t see a path where we reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 without nuclear,” said Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s natural-resources minister. “It is proven, it is tested and it is safe.

Reactors worth their salt

Molten salt reactors (MSRs) present a new approach to industrial fission power. The nuclear fuel is dissolved in a high-temperature alkali-halide melt, such as lithium fluoride or sodium chloride, and circulates about the primary loop between the fissioning core and primary heat exchangers.
