The Thorizon reactor is inherently safe by design:
- Safety by design and gravity: ‘walk away safe’ – when the pumps stop, the salt drops to the non-critical zone and the reactor shuts down.
- Operates at low pressure in all circumstances. Operation at low pressure significantly reduces risks of release of nuclear materials
- Higher temperature slows down reaction: the reactor regulates itself. The salt is already molten, a nuclear meltdown scenario is not possible
