Molten Salts – The Future of Nuclear?

NI 150The NI North West Branch are delighted to present the next talk in their lecture series ‘Molten Salts – The Future of Nuclear?’. 

Speaker: David Graham, National Nuclear Laboratory

Date: Tuesday 24th February 2015, 6:30pm (refreshments from 6:00pm)

Venue: The Centre, Birchwood Park, Warrington, WA3 6YN

With prototype reactors originally developed in the 1950’s and 60’s before being forgotten, Molten Salt Reactors are currently enjoying a resurgence in interest as one of the Generation IV reactor concepts, with a number of concept designs produced globally.

Molten salt reprocessing is currently being developed as an alternative to standard aqueous methods, such as PUREX currently utilised at THORP. It hopes to provide a simpler and cleaner method of reprocessing spent fuel, and is particularly useful for closing a fast reactor fuel cycle.

The talk will give a summary of the current molten salt reactor and reprocessing technologies and their applicability to the future of the UK nuclear landscape.

Register: No registration is required and all are welcome to attend.

This is a FREE event which is open to all and can be used as part of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
