Uranium and Nuclear Power play key role in decarbonization.

Question : Will EU Follow Finnish and French Lead or We allow to Moscow horde blackmail us for many years?

US is ready to help (as usual, God Bless the USA )

Cheap and always available electricity is the base of a modern economy.

Steelmelting you can not do it more efficient. Steelmelting is an over several thousand years optimized process.


Ideological energy gambling could lead to further deindustrialisation in Europe.


The nuclear waste can be stored and used like for liquid soduim reactors.

MoltexFLEX to launch new UK nuclear reactor


MoltexFLEX has unveiled its FLEX molten salt reactor, described as an advanced lower-cost nuclear technology and ‘ideal complement’ to wind and solar power.

Working in Warrington, North West England, MoltexFLEX’s team has developed the nuclear reactor which uses molten salt in an unprecedented way. As it has no moving parts, the FLEX reactor is simple in both design and operation, MoltexFLEX said. The company plans to have its first reactor operational by 2029.

According to Moltex, the reactor can respond to changes in energy demand, automatically entering an idle state or returning rapidly to full power. Additionally, it would take just 24 months to build a 500 MW power plant, the company said.

“We recognised the need for an energy supply that can support renewables when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow. In the FLEX reactor, we have a solution for consumers and countries alike,” commented David Landon, CEO, MoltexFLEX.

According to the company, the cost of electricity generated by the FLEX reactor will be comparable to that of wind at just £40 per MWh. The reactor uses a patented system with two molten salts: one acting as a fuel, the other circulating as a coolant. This allows the reactor’s heat to be extracted through natural convection, without the need for pumps.

Due to its simplicity, the FLEX reactor doesn’t require expansive steel and concrete structures, greatly reducing the operational and maintenance costs. Once online, it can be operated with the same skills and equipment used in a fossil fuel plant, and can last 60 years with only two scheduled breaks over that lifetime to refuel, MoltexFLEX confirmed.

“The FLEX reactor provides the safety net of affordable domestic energy, but is versatile enough for applications ranging from decarbonising heavy industry to powering cargo ships,” Landon added.

The 750°C heat produced by the reactor could also be used for water desalination and more efficient hydrogen production. Roughly the size of a two-storied house, each reactor has the potential to power 40,000 homes.

UK is building new types of reactors.

While the nuclear lobby is telling us that the safety of radioactive material can be guaranteed for xxx years, Western leaders are telling us that we avoided the radioactive contamination of Europe by a hair's breadth just a couple of days ago.



Chernobyl was a terrible design...

You can make reactors as safe as you want now, although there is a tradeoff between safety and efficiency.

Waste disposal is also entirely political. They can be easily and safely buried in geologically stable seabeds.

So sure, life is absurd, but it is less absurd with reliable power.

The Uranbolts are cooled with salt instead of water (much higher boiling point 750°C instead 100°C)

Nuclear energy option is not on the table due too many tree hugers in central Europe.


You opened this thread 6 months before the invsasion (respect). Can you forsee the future???
