Reduces waste

Moltex’s Stable Salt Reactor – Wasteburner (SSR-W) uses the nuclear waste from past and present operations as fuel, significantly reducing waste stockpiles.

Conventional nuclear reactors extract about 1% of the potential energy from the uranium they use, leaving the rest in the form of long-lived and highly radioactive waste. While conventional reprocessing is technically feasible, the costs are often prohibitive because current reactors need a highly refined fuel.

Following a far less expensive waste recycling process, the SSR-W uses nuclear waste to produce clean energy. Additional fuel recycling occurs throughout the reactor’s lifetime, further reducing the volume and radioactivity of waste destined for long-term storage.

In locations with existing inventory of nuclear waste, the SSR-W offers a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and socially acceptable solution to waste minimization.

Moltex’s SSR-W will use the legacy of the old nuclear industry to power a clean energy revolution!
