Technology

Safe. Smart. Circular.

Nuclear reactors are a highly reliable source of energy that fundamentally complements intermittent wind and solar in a carbon-free energy system. We have developed cutting-edge nuclear technology that is inherently safe and can use existing nuclear waste as an energy source. This technology uses a different fuel and coolant type than traditional nuclear reactors: it is based on molten salt rather than on solid fuels and water. While molten salt reactors have proven to be a promising and feasible concept since the 1960s, only Thorizon holds the key to commercializing them with our unique cartridge-based design.
