that could power our country for thousands of years!
Energy from Thorium also produces Medicines
that could be used to fight some of the worst cancers
Energy from Thorium could enable
Lower Energy Costs for America's Manufacturers
and Greater Competitiveness!
Energy from Thorium Used in a LFTR
could generate electricity and desalinate sea water .
OSU Nuclear Power Forum
Thank You to everyone who attended and helped to make this event a huge success.
Julian Rosenman MD PhD
Dr. Julian Rosenman gives lecture on the great potential of Alpha-immunotherapy and its ability to eradicate cancer with the proper delivery system. Alpha-immunoherapy utilizes Actinium 225 which can be produced by a LFTR. Currently, Actinium is rare and very expensive.
Kirk speaks o the crowd at OSU about the need to develop a LFTR and why LFTR, up till now, has not been developed.
Dr. Heather Willauer
Dr. Heather Willauer talks to Ohio State attendees about how her team has successfully turned seawater into jet fuel. The high heat needed for this process could be an application for LFTR.
Dr. Robert Hargraves
Dr. Robert Hargraves makes the economic and humanitarian case for a Thorium based MSR (Molten Salt Reactor)
Dr. Charles Forsberg
Dr. Charles Forsberg of MIT and ORNL explains the benefits of MSRs (Molten Salt Reactors)
Dr. Henry Cialone
Dr. Henry Cialone of EWI makes the case for Ohio to develop SMRs (Small Modular Reactors)

Chernobyl, Nuclear Safety, and the Central Role of the Temperature Coefficient 20 Years Ago Twenty years ago, the worst nuclear power accident in history took place in the Ukraine at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station. The details of the accident are described extensively on a number of different w
Dual Fluid LFTR’s are easy to Reprocess The nuclear materials of a properly-designed, two-fluid (LFTR) Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor are extremely easy to process. This is because the fuel (one-fluid) and the fertile blanket (the other fluid) are already liquids. This immediately eliminates
Don’t throw away U233! When I learned that the entire National Defense Stockpile of thorium (3216 metric tonnes) was slated for burial in the Nevada desert, that was bad enough. But the destruction of our U233 really breaks my heart and hurts so much worse. Uranium-233 is the ideal fuel to sta
How to waste a LOT of Thorium to make very little energy Another semi-recent story concerns the use of thorium as a “fuel” in typical, light-water reactors. I put “fuel” in quotations because the only way to truly utilize the thorium resources of the world is to follow the th
Getting out from between “MOX” and a “Hard Place” In 2003, an article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Between MOX and a Hard Place, described the difficulty of disposing of the vast amounts of weapons-grade plutonium and uranium left over from the Cold War. &
LFTR Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor Development of an Innovative Thorium Reactor The LFTR is an innovative design for a thermal breeder reactor that was developed from the 1950s through the 1970s at ORNL Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The reactor utilized a fluid-fuel form,
In the late 1940s, excitement and enthusiasm about all things “atomic” was common among military planners. Having “harnessed” the energy of the atom for nuclear weapons, naturally they began to imagine how this energy could be used to drive other military activities. About th
Welcome to the Energy From Thorium Foundation! This weblog is intended to be a location for discussion and education about the value of thorium as a future energy source. Despite the fact that our world is desperately searching for new sources of energy, the value of thorium is not well-understood,
