Dr Ian Scott, inventor of Stable Salt Reactor Technology, has addressed Oak Ridge National Laboratory as part of ORNL’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment’s first operation. Dr Scott spoke to leading nuclear experts and Molten Salt Reactor technologists from around the world as part of a major symposium assessing the past, present and future of Molten Salt Reactors.
Dr Scott said, “I was honoured to speak to the assembled experts at ORNL, the home of the original Molten Salt Reactors, and delighted to receive such a positive reception. Just as the original Molten Salt Reactor Experiment broke new ground, so Moltex Energy’s Stable Salt Reactor Technology is a breakthrough in reactor design that will enable intrinsically safe and intrinsically cost-competitive nuclear energy. Thanks to ORNL for organising the symposium and for inviting me to speak.”
