Fukushima-Daiichi reactor failures had simple (and easily preventable) causes. The Light Water Reactors survived the earthquake and tsunami. What caused the damage? How would Molten Salt Reactors fare?
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.
With molten fuel (instead of solid fuel rods) LFTRs have No Chance of Nuclear Meltdown. Can’t get hot enough to melt reactor vessel. Read how!
LFTR – A Nuclear Reactor That Can’t Melt Down? No High-Pressure Coolant? Consumes Nuclear Waste? Yes!
We’ve been told nuclear power is great, and that it’s deadly. Few know that we’ve only been using one Type of nuclear reactor. We are using the type the fossil fuel industry wanted, not the type the nuclear engineers recommended. What are the safer, less expensive types of nuclear reactor, the Molten Salt Reactors?
