Europe has a Thorium MSR Project - SAMOFAR

TU-Delft, host to a symposium on the perspectives of Thorium in the Molten Salt Reactor in Deft today, presented the European Thorium MSR Project - SAMOFAR - due to start in August 2015.

This announcement is clear sign of European interest in Thorium MSRs. It cannot be seen as a national program like the ones in China and India but is a good start and hopefully will lead to a host nation within EU stepping in as a major actor.

Indian Molten Salt Breeder Reactor (IMSBR) Initiated

India has both the world’s largest thorium reserves and program to utilize it. The program is famously divided into three stages of which the ‘ready to be built’ Advanced Heavy Water Reactor (AHWR) is the beginning of the third stage.

In the newly published Thorium Energy Report (ThoriumEnergyReport.org) India reported that it has initiated studies on a conceptual design of the Indian Molten Salt Breeder Reactor (IMBSR).

Thorium In a Nutshell

Kurzgesagt is German for “in a nutshell” and the name of a group who makes science storytelling beautiful.
Their latest video gives you 3 reasons why we should continue using nuclear energy:

1 Saves lives: best energy source in energy per deaths.

2 Reduces CO2: 64 giga tonnes less CO2 because of nuclear.

3 New technologies: Thorium Reactors could maybe solve the problems altogether.

Read the Thorium Energy Report

ThE Report provides an overview of all achievements in 2014 and the goals for 2015. Here are some of the highlights...

Thorium Energy Report

The Thorium Energy Report is in the making. It will cover all major efforts in the field, presenting a comprehensive overview. Target audiences are non-scientific leaders in all related fields. It will be marketed and made freely available online to secure the best possible outreach. The first report will be published soon, with new reports published on a regular basis.


We would very much like to help promote all outstanding efforts, yours especially. Please email us at info (at) itheo.org for instruction how to participate.

Skyharbour Resources Drills for Thorium

Skyharbour has received drilling permission for its Falcon Point Uranium and Thorium Project in the mineral rich Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Copenhagen Atomics - Thorium Molten Salt Reactor

A Danish startup aim to reduce nuclear waste problem from 100.000 years to 300 years.

Also from Denmark was the famouse scientist Niels Bohr who made foundational contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum theory, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. He called for international cooperation on nuclear energy and was involved with the establishment of CERN and the Research Establishment Risø of the Danish Atomic Energy Commission.

Maybe Copenhagen Atomics can pick up where Denmark left this great scientists vision quite some time ago.

Thorium can give Humanity Clean and Pollution Free Energy

It starts by going back to the beginning of the universe. 14 billion years ago, big bang and the formation of everything. And everything was just hydrogen, helium and a little bit of some other stuff, the stars and galaxies started to form and they were like factories for creating new elements… So starts Kirk Sorensen's TEDxColorado Springs talk.
