I thought it might be worthwhile to post a few links to some very interesting and advanced research on the MSR Fuel Cycle in the Czech Republic. This research is being conducted at the Nuclear Physics Institute in Rez (which is just north of Prague).

http://www.ujf.cas.cz/index.php

The first link is to a paper by Jan Uhlir et al, entitled "R&D of Molten Salt Reactor Fuel Cycle in the Czech Republic"

The second link is to paper by Hron et al, entitled "R&D Program on Partitioning and Transmutation in the Czech Republic"

The last link is to a joint paper between researchers in Moscow and Prague, by Alekseev et al, entitled "Concept of the Demonstration Molten Salt Unit for the Transuranium Element Transmutation"

This topic was initiated in 2007, 5 years ago. The links are dead now but this shows that the Czech research on MSR's was ongoing quite a while ago. In light of the exciting news lately of cooperation between CR and the DOE on MSR's, does anyone have any idea how far this research has gone in 5 years? What is a reasonable/unreasonable guesstimate of how long it might take to get a pilot up and critical now that the DOE has joined the team? Do you believe the Chinese MSRP have the advantage over the CR/DOE research at this point or will the CR/DOE guys have a significant edge in research/talent? Thanks for your highly speculative input.

If you visit the Czech Nuclear Research Institute's web site http://www.nri.cz/web/ujv/hlavni-strana, you'll see two images on the left; one "Annual Report" and another "Professional Publications".

Download the latter. It contains a number of technical overviews from 2010 in a single PDF.

One paper by Jan Uhlir "Fuel Cycle Aspects of Molten Salt Reactor System" describes and compares the merits of single and two-fluid systems.
