What's LFTR > THE Answer to CO2 AND Energy !

LFTR Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor - "New" ( invented 60 years ago but discredited by "The Experts" Alternative Nuclear "Fusion" Energy Technology for Solving Long Term Energy "Crises" invented/protoyped AND "squashed" in the '60/70s in favor of "dirty" A-Bomb Technology Chromtech opens up a discussion not just for academic purposes but high tech input re Australia incolvement at the R&D level . . . perhaps In recent decades being resurrected by Kirk Sorensen and current bein"commercialise ( India, China and others ) NOT necessarily by the USA who are locked -in by "vested Interests and dirty" current Nuclear Technology" . . . once fossil fuel start to run out in a "few hundred" - 1000 years or more ! THAT's IF Ever "anthropogenic CO2 Warming comes to ANY realistic fruition ! . . . First ! > get rid of "The GREENIES" mentality ! LFTR > A " minor key" still perhaps is "materials technology" re corrosion "abatement" Containment Vessels; Piping, Pumps > a bit of R&D . . . but too Easy ! compared to "scare money" ! from the "sucker" tax-payers ! Governments ARE aware of New generation compact coventional Nuclear Plants are on the verge of being mass-produced but still relying on U235 and long term contamination / storage issues LFTR is low pressure (lower temperature 600degC) and hence infinitely safer and inherently demonstratably "fail-safe" Graphite "Control" Rods . . . now "common" technology materials in Nuclear Plant designs BeF and Thorium Fluoride salts; are highly corrosive and pose some decontamination issues ( residual HF and F2 impurities ( All far less severe an issue than in conventional Nuclear Power "Hot Water" designs )after long term live reactor use >Hastalloy-60 Generally high Ni low C alloys utilised in original prototypes seems to be accepted LFTR Cheap Energy and Climate Change re CO2 utilisation chemically industrially ?. . . if necessary ?

. . . see my previous "blog"

Chromtech Contribution to R&D Possibilities . . . more "thought bubbles" perhaps . . . but with some insight ? . . . hopefully before the normal "apathy" sets in ! Graphite Ferrules for high Temperature fitting seals ( currently by 2.0" ID - our production limit Silcoseteel - CR and derivatives from SilcoTEK low cost alternative approaching inertness of "Hastalloys" - unproven / unresearched Current exotic application : rocket nozzle coating ; anti-corrosion applications including marine LFTR pioneered by Alvin Weinberg '1950>70s but prematurely "discredited" and CANCELLED in favour of "dirty" A-Bomb technology Currently being resurrected by Kirk Sorenson and NOW under Industrial implementation by many Countries ( China, India ) and reluctantly it seems by the USA R&D altho' they are bogged down in "dirty Nuclear Power being commercialised by "vested interest GE ( Hitachi -Japan ? ) "stalled" . . . as there is simply too much NG and coal yet to exploit" once "the scares" have "arbitrarily" forced up the price of both "grossly" subsidised Renewables ( Wind & Solar ) AND those "nasty" Fossil Fuels ! The " conveniently forgotten" problem > Only now being realised > conceded by those "experts"? > the cost of land and disposable(s) after 15 to 20 years of those "renewables" AND the absurd cost of the infra-structure ( re Electricity GRIDS ). Also the limitation of "pumped Hydro" and potential Fusion Technology > by definition & cost > need to centralised IF IT is ever "perfected"

"Modular LFTR" IS THE ONLY "Realistic"ANSWER ! & justifiable ! . . . in "reasonable" affordable time THE EARH IS "DOOMED" > Anyway ! but more probably in millions (>billions?) of years ! . . . except for "natural "Climate events > volcanoes, tectonic plate shift, asteroid impacts, unexplained Ice Ages etc . . . ALL INEVITABLE ! . . . even without the current "expedient" "invented" CO2 "Climate Scam" ! see more > BLOG etc elsewhere !
