Presenting a little 40 MW Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactor

Thorenco LLC presents a little 40 MW Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactor

Introducing a Small Nuclear reactor design that is portable, affordable, safe, and guaranteed to make the most ardent anti-nuke's head explode. The reactor core is about a foot and a half wide and about 20 inches tall, lasts 10 years and is returned to the manufacturer for reprocessing when it is spent. Best of all, the reactor produces very little plutonium which makes it ideal for use in certain countries that we don't want to have plutonium.

Let's hope that we see some of these really soon.


  1. We can call it "Mr. Fission".

  2. Not quite, but if they can find a way to downsize it to about 1% of current that should be more than enough to power an electric car for 10 years.

    I think they are targeting for industrial use right now. :)

  3. Can I get one and sell the power to the neighbours?

  4. If it were me, I'd say absolutely. Unfortunately you might have to have a chat with the company when it gets something on the market.
