Revisiting Thorium Energy – The Future of Nuclear Power?

Will thorium reactors be the future of renewable energy? While nuclear power raises fear among many of us, it’s considered one of our better options for a reliable, carbon-free renewable energy future. Alongside small modular reactors, molten salt reactors (MSRs) that use Thorium as a fuel, are considered cheaper, cleaner and safer options to the traditional nuclear reactors. With experimental tests scheduled for a Thorium-reactor in China and US companies developing projects that should be spinning up in the next few years, let’s revisit my previous video, Thorium explained, and molten-salt reactors, and when we’ll be able to see their impact. Could Thorium reactors build a cheaper and safer future for nuclear power?
