Molten Salt Reactors Leading Advanced Nuclear Technology

Some emerging technologies are advancing so rapidly that we seem to write about them every week. Artificial intelligence is the most obvious example, as it bleeds into most other sectors, including robotics, smart cities, drug discovery, and the list goes on. Progress around other technologies is so painfully slow – and the eventual payoff debatable […]

Advanced Nuclear Technology: Future of Nuclear Energy

Those of a certain age who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s took our cues from the pop culture of our times. MASH’s Hawkeye Pierce was our moral compass. Gratuitous naughtiness from bygone movie franchises like Porky’s and Revenge of the Nerds was our sex education. And films like War Games that introduced us […]

When Will We Have a Working Molten Salt Reactor?

Back in October of 2015, we did a write up on 6 Nuclear Energy Companies Building Molten Salt Reactors, evaluating new strides being made towards safe nuclear power. The Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), which is projected to be safer, cleaner, and cheaper than traditional nuclear reactors, could be the next bit step in energy tech […]

6 Nuclear Energy Companies Building Molten Salt Reactors

According to the World Nuclear Association, electricity demand almost doubled from 1990 to 2011, and is projected to grow 81% from 2011 to 2035. Nuclear power currently provides for about 11% of the world’s electricity, and 21% of electricity in OECD countries. While nuclear power is the most environmentally benign way of producing electricity on […]
