    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?

Power of a Norse God – Thorium Test Begins

They say it can reduce the danger of nuclear proliferation, make the spent fuel storage problem easier to handle and produce energy at the same time. The Scatec solution: add some thorium!

Molten Salt Reactor – Is it worth it?

The Engineer has an article in which Stuart Nathan argues for and against Molten Salt Reactor technology, and whether it should receive the substantial investments it needs.

‘They can do things that other reactors just can’t do. There are so many advantages over other systems, but equally there are difficulties and you shouldn’t underestimate them.’

Kevin Hesketh, senior fellow in reactor physics and nuclear fuel cycles at the National Nuclear Laboratory.

My Radical Plan for Small Nuclear Fission Reactors – Taylor Wilson

Taylor Wilson was 14 when he built a nuclear fusion reactor in his parents' garage. Now 19, he returns to the TED stage to present a new take on an old topic: fission (reported here).
Wilson, who has won backing to create a company to realize his vision, explains why he's so excited about his innovative design for small modular fission reactors -- and why it could be the next big step in solving the global energy crisis.

Seminar: Can Thorium Provide Safe Nuclear Power?

MILEN and SFFE invite you to a lunch seminar in Oslo Norway with Sunniva Rose, PhD in Nuclear and Energy Physics. Rose will bust some of the myths about Thorium and nuclear power in general.

Thorium: the Green Future for Nuclear Power?

Thorium is often considered to be the future of nuclear energy, just like its only alternative, uranium-238. At Grenoble INP, the researchers from LPSC are working on a molten salt fast reactor (MSFR) that is fuelled by thorium.

Wall Street Journal - Energy Report

What’s the best way forward on nuclear power?
The Wall Street Journal put this question to The Experts, an exclusive group of industry and thought leaders who engage in in-depth online discussions of topics. Only one out of eight experts mention Thorium.

Should Norway Make its Thorium Available?

Norway is a unique country in many ways. It has the largest capital reserve per capita of any nation. Norway is the fifth largest oil exporter and third largest gas exporter in the world. All revenue goes into a sovereign wealth fund valued at USD 570 billion (2011).
On top of this, Norway is the country where Thorium was first found and it has vast quantities of the precious atom. The Telemark region, which is an ancient volcano, is believed to contain 132 000 tons of Thorium.

Dream Beam from Laser

Could massive arrays of thousands of fiber lasers be the driving force behind the next-generation neutron source? New research could help cut the size of powerful particle accelerators from kilometers to meters in length according to its supporters.

Looking for Revival

Dirk de Vos argues whether “South Africa should put its nuclear dreams aside for now?” He does so by looking at current nuclear constructions and comparing it with the promises of new nuclear.
