For the development of this technology, Thorizon will collaborate closely with several parties, such as the French company Orano, world leader in the recycling of nuclear materials, and NRG, the Dutch producer of medical isotopes and operator of nuclear research infrastructure. Together with EPZ, operator of the nuclear power plant in Borssele, Thorizon investigates the possibility of realising a first system on their site. A broader consortium of research institutions such as TU Delft and DIFFER, component suppliers, and industrial service providers is involved to support this development.
The investors are a strong team of private and public sector parties. The private investors are venture capital fund Positron Ventures(lead investor), impact investor Invest-NL, one private investor, and the company Huisman who not only invests but will also become an industrial supplier. The public sector investors are the two provincial funds PDENH (lead investor) and Impuls Zeeland. The parties invest in Thorizon because they view the company’s technology as a serious candidate to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral economy, through the development of a completely new, safe, virtually inexhaustible and CO2 free energy source.
