    ThEC15 in Mumbai, India

    ThEC15 - Gateway to Thorium Energy!
    Anushakti Nagar, a part of Mumbai called the “Atomic Power City” welcomes you to learn more...

  • Affordable

    Thorium is one of the most energy-dense elements found in nature spread over all the continents in large quantities. Abundant and efficient, can Thorium offer an affordable energy source?

  • Safe

    Are there safe methods of using Thorium with no risk of meltdowns or explosions? Can Thorium also be proliferation resistant?

  • Proven

    Research into the use of Thorium started in the 1960’s in the US government's atomic lab. Was it already then proven as a superior fuel?

  • Clean

    Reactors fuelled by Thorium create zero-emission energy. Is a drastic waste reduction in both amount and lifetime enough?

  • Sustainable

    If affordable, safe and clean, does Thorium offer a sustainable solution to the world’s energy problem?

  • Conference

    Gateway to Thorium Energy! The best and brightest speakers in the field in a world class location – is ThEC15 in Mumbai at BARC a unique opportunity?

Meet The “Total Solution” to Earth’s Energy Crisis

Recently, a messianic buzz in the international energy community has surrounded thorium—lauding it as the “total solution” to Earth’s energy crisis.

Per Peterson on Atomic Opportunities

What is the best design to make next generation nuclear reactors safer and cheaper? That’s the question everyone from Bill Gates to the Chinese government is asking. Breakthrough sat down with Peterson to discuss the prospects of different advanced nuclear technologies, how the Chinese are leading nuclear innovation, and how the US can and should continue to cooperate so as to increase the chances of widespread deployment.

Promise and Peril

On a Wednesday morning, at about 4 a.m. on March 28 in 1979, a failure on the feedwater pumps at Three Mile Island (TMI) would shape the future of energy...

Envisioning Emerging Technologies

China Declares ‘War on Pollution’ and makes Thorium the Solution

The Chinese government has just expressed what it expects from its Thorium Energy Program. It wants to cut the development time from 25 years to only 10 in order to have Thorium Reactors replacing coal-fired power plants, which blanket the country in increasingly dangerous smog.

Thorium from a Student's Perspective

What do students interested in the field of Thorium Energy think about the developments and the future? Aaron Hall is studying Mechanical Engineering and currently in the pre-med program at Washington University in St. Louis. He gives us a student’s perspective and his opinions.

Exploring Alternative uses of Thorium

While extensive research is being undertaken to study the role of thorium for sustainable and safe energy production, you might ask: what are its alternative uses?

Let's take a look at the many different areas – from the archaeology of stars and dating the earth's crust to applications in medicine - where thorium comes into use.

We will Continue to Follow this Emerging Technology

Jaye Pickarts, COO of Rare Element Resources, on why the company thinks that thorium research is important.
Rare Element Resources Ltd. is a publicly traded mineral resource company focused on exploration and development of rare earth element deposits, specifically those with significant distribution of critical rare earths. The Company is advancing development of the Bear Lodge Project, located in northeast Wyoming.

Nuclear Energy, our Destiny

What do ordinary people associate with ‘nuclear reactions’? Aaron Hall argues that the answers need to be reevaluated since it is our duty as earth dwellers to investigate all avenues of energy research to provide a sustainable future for us and our planet.

World’s First Thorium Reactor Designed

India’s forward-thinking attitude has established the country as the leader in thorium reactor development. But can India put its long-term plan into reality? Now, their AHWR design is finished, taking them one big step forward.
