Why are today’s nuclear reactors dangerous in accidents?
Because in solid reactor fuel, dangerous radioactive products are gases which can travel thousands of miles.
Why are Stable Salt Reactors far safer?
Because in molten salt fuel those same radioactive products are stable non-volatile salts that will stay inside the reactor even in a bad accident.
This has been known for 70 years! Yet all our reactors today use solid fuel because everyone believed molten salt fuel had to be used in a totally new, complex and expensive engineered system that would make today’s reactors look simple.
This was Moltex Energy’s breakthrough: we proved that molten salt fuel could simply replace solid fuel in today’s highly developed fuel containers.
