EPRI Report on LFTR Published

For most of the past year, I have been working steadily on inputs to this report, now published by the Electric Power Research Institute.

EPRI: Program on Technology Innovation: Technology Assessment of a Molten Salt Reactor Design — The Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR)

It contains the most comprehensive description of the liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) concept to date, along with the results of an exercise in possible effects from various failures or operational anomalies.

Thanks go out to EPRI and Southern Company for providing the funding for the study, and to Teledyne Brown Engineering for the administration of the research contract.
