How long will the world's uranium supplies last

26-1-2009Using more enrichment work could reduce the uranium needs of LWRs by as much as 30 percent per metric ton of LEU And separating plutonium and uranium from spent LEU and using them to make fresh fuel could reduce requirements by another 30 percent Taking both steps would cut the uranium requirements of an LWR in half Get price


Thorium Reactor

Thorium reactors are based on the thorium fuel cycle and use thorium 232 as a fertile material During the fuel burning thorium 232 transforms into a fissile uranium 233 Unlike natural uranium natural thorium contains only trace amounts of fissile material (such as thorium 231) which are insufficient to initiate and sustain nuclear chain Get price


Thorium fuel cycle

Concerns about the limits of worldwide uranium resources motivated initial interest in the thorium fuel cycle It was envisioned that as uranium reserves were depleted thorium would supplement uranium as a fertile material However for most countries uranium was relatively abundant and research in thorium fuel cycles waned Get price

That's what a Utah-based startup believes it could do by using thorium as a core fuel instead of uranium in a nuclear reactor What Is Thorium Nuclear Energy? Alpha Tech Research Corp the startup in Utah has proposed a 30-megawatt test reactor would use thorium Seven counties in the state are considering participating Get price


Why thorium is a safer nuclear option

23-6-2019An alternative that is receiving serious attention from the nuclear stakeholders is using thorium instead of uranium as nuclear fuel Thorium is a non-fissile "fertile" slightly radioactive element Being non-fissile it cannot be split to create a nuclear chain reaction so it must be bred through nuclear reactors to produce fissile Get price

(Zie ook dit recente blog over thorium MSR) Hij was zelfs aangekondigd door ons Nationale Politiek Correcte Geweten Clairy Polak de bijeenkomst van de VVM in Nieuwspoort over het illustere thorium Als we de vele extatische websites mogen geloven is thorium de panacee voor al onze energiezorgen nu uranium opeens toch niet meer kan kolen []Get price


Solid Phase Extraction of Thorium and Uranium and their

Solid phase extraction and separation of thorium (Th) uranium (U) and lanthanides were achieved using a humic acid-modified silica gel (Si-HA) Adsorption capacity effect of contact time pH and adsorbent dose were examined at room temperature The maximum adsorbent capacities (pH = 3) for Th and U were 28 0 and 31 3 mg g -1 respectively Get price


Thorium salt reactor experiments resume after 40 years

24-8-2017Unfortunately thorium can't do this so thorium fuel must be mixed with uranium or subjected to an outside neutron source to start the reaction cycle From the 1960s until 1976 the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United States carried out reactor experiments using thorium fluoride dissolved in a molten salt instead of solid fuel elements Get price

In the distant past the abundances of thorium and uranium were enriched by the decay of plutonium and curium isotopes and thorium was enriched relative to uranium by the decay of 236 U to 232 Th and the natural depletion of 235 U but these sources have long since decayed and no longer contribute Get price
