http://thoriumremix.com/ Kirk Sorensen for harnessing the power of the atom using Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors (LFTR).
LFTR offers greater efficiency and safety over today's operating reactors, and even proposed light water / boiling water reactors. LFTR also provides spare processes heat and valuable isotopes as a byproduct of normal operation, something today's reactors can not, due to their low operating temperature.
Topics emphasized by Kirk at TEAC4:
- Economic and political situation of medical isotope production and applications.
- Use as a reliable energy production method of US military bases explained in their jargon.
- Desalination enabled by the high temperatures possible when using ionic salts instead of covalently bonded molecules to transfer heat.
Kirk Sorensen's talk was one of many at Thorium Energy Alliance Conference #4 in Chicago.
