Re: Why are thorium reactors not feasible?
i was reading something about the decay rate or it needs more fuel put in then it puts out.

Is it really because you cant make bomb material from it?

Re: Why are thorium reactors not feasible?
All the metal used to make a reactor eventually has to be buried.1000yrs for half-life of steel.
And it eventually ruins from the decay.
That's why Pentax is so popular.they bury that metal.very radioactive.

Re: Why are thorium reactors not feasible?
The power generators run on steam which means you need heat and it needs to be controllable.

Maybe thorium is hard to control.

He thinks it works like a gas engine when it works like a steam engine.

Neutrons are easily managed but alpha and beta are bad news.
This why fusion.aluminum can be used and aluminum has a half life of 2minutes.

Re: Why are thorium reactors not feasible?
The prototype reactor is expected to be completed next month, with the first tests beginning as early as September. This will pave the way for the building of the first commercial reactor, slated for construction by 2030.

2030 come on man thats too slow

Thorium breeder reactors are feasible and possible and china is standing up several, likely in large part to massively expand their nuclear weapons program.

Re: Why are thorium reactors not feasible?
It's completely feasible yes

and probably the future of energy, will be molten salt reactor

small size, not pressurised water, safe

managed by private companies



Like probably container size molten salt reactor


Instead of having one big risky nuclear plot


it will be many small reactors, with almost no maintenance changing the thorium fuel once every 10/20 years

something like that

Thorium is Way more Abundant then Uranium Therefore It lacks the Price Control of Rarity and Can NOT be used for Weapons.

However on the Flip side, A Thorium Reactor can be Fueled with Radioactive waste as in what Uranium Breeder Reactors have as Waste/Spent Fuel.

Thorium Reactors are the Answer to Radioactive Waste Disposal.

Will it Happen? Only if The Current Scheme of Things Changes.

Free Energy has All ready been Given to Mankind and Has been Hidden away from the General Public by the Money people Who Control the World.

Can use waste material from uran reactors, they can even dig out the old waste contained in led concrete underground storage facilities, whats the downside, no downside.

dream on. to make electricity you need to boil water to make steam then the steam needs to spin a turbine. there is no way that a steam boiler, turbine, and electric generator setup will be "almost no maintenance". unless you really enjoy explosions and fires
