• 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

    The best and brightest speakers in the field in world class locations – where will the next ThEC be held?

  • Thorium Energy
  • Let's power the world with Thorium Energy

Thorium: In Search of a Global Solution

The CERN Bulletin has an article called “Thorium: In Serach of a Global Solution” that discusses ThEC13, ADS technology with Jean-Pierre Revol and Thorium with world famous Hans Blix in a video.

Sunniva Rose Loves Thorium

Sunniva Rose gives a presentation at TEDxOslo titled “How bad is it really? Facts and feelings about nuclear power” which focuses on her favorite element: Thorium.

ThEC13 in Geneva at CERN - Success!

With over 200 participants from 32 countries and all Thorium Energy Programs represented in the Globe of Science and Innovation at CERN we conclude ThEC13 to be a success! The Reception and Banquette was held at the famous Hotel President Wilson. A CERN detector visit was made and we were welcommed by the CERN Director General Mr. Rolf-Dieter Heuer followed by the world famous Hans Blix and Nobel Prize Laureate Carlo Rubbia gave the scientific introduction. The banquette speach was delivered by M. Pascal Couchepin, the former President of the Swizz Confederation. And so on...

Thank you to all participants and presenters at ThEC13 in Geneva at CERN!

Press Release: ThEC13 in Geneva at CERN

“Energy is a major concern for society and I’m sure that this conference will show once again how fundamental research can help to address such an important challenge” said Rolf Heuer, CERN Director-General.

Thorium Research Center in Norway

The new government in Norway has announced a plan to establish a thorium research center.
This is not because commercial production of energy based on thorium is needed in Norway. Indeed, Norway is predicting an energy surplus for the next 20-30 years. But Norway holds an estimated 4 percent of the world’s thorium reserves, and politicians have been arguing whether these resources should be made accessible to the world.

Thorium Loses Weight

How much does Thorium weigh? This might seem an easy question to answer but when an atom has isotopes and is slightly radioactive it gets complicated. If you are not into details, this is not for you.

Program Updated 2013-09-18

This is a tentative program. Program updates will come shortly. If you have recommendations please send them to info@itheo.org

Looking forward to meeting you at ThEC13 in Geneva at CERN

Facts About Thorium from LiveScience

Did you know that thorium was formed in the cores of dying stars through the r-process, and supernovas eventually scattered it across the galaxy?

LiveScience has put together a “Facts About Thorium” page with lots of facts and you find it here.
