Molten Salt Reactors have greater safety and lower construction costs than India’s Advanced Heavy Water Reactor.
Molten Salt Reactors can’t get hot enough to melt reactor vessel, liquid fuel expands w/heat, reducing fission; materials safely handle hottest reactor gets.
Can Use LFTRs to Consume Nuclear Waste. Instead of Yucca Mountain storage, completely fission the radioactive materials in spent fuel rods, depleted uranium from fuel rod assembly, and nuclear weapons. LFTRs fission over 99% of their fuel.
Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor uses a Liquid fuel, not Solid fuel. Meltdown can’t happen, fuel gets completely consumed (vs. 1-2% in a solid fueled reactor).
