Short Description: Thorium Fuelled Accelerator Driven Subcritical Reactors for Power Generation
This EPSRC responsive mode project concerned the economic and technical feasibility of a possible new type of nuclear power station fuelled with thorium and made functional by the addition of neutrons from a particle accelerator-based process. The work complemented to a wider set of UK activities coordinated by the Thorium Energy Amplifier Association (ThorEA) and disseminated through 3 working papers.
