Thorium Report by the Nuclear Energy Agency

The Nuclear Energy Agency recently published a report titled ‘Introduction of Thorium in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle’. This report was drafted to offer a scientific and technologically sound assessment of thorium’s potential role in nuclear energy in short and longer term. Indeed, it dives very deep into the history, current state and potential of thorium energy, and provides an excellent source of information.

Short- to long-term consideration by the NEA.

Should Turkey Enter the Thorium Race?
