Thorium Reactors: Fact and Fiction

Jan 24, 2017However, thorium is not fissile. Thorium is the fertile element of the fuel; it still needs a fissile element to get it started. And here is one place the thorium-uranium fuel cycle differs from the uranium-plutonium fuel cycle. Most thorium-fueled designs are breeder reactors, meaning they produce more fissile material than they consume.

But uranium doesn't deserve it's image as one of the periodic table's nasties. Much of the internal heat of the earth is considered to be due to the decay of natural uranium and thorium deposits. Perhaps those looking to improve the public image of nuclear power should demand the relabelling of geothermal ground-source heat pumps as nuclear?

Uranium and thorium are two of the most frequent radioactive elements existing in the crust of the Earth. These elements can be absorbed by the human body due to their widespread presence in air, soil, water, and food, of which drinking water is the major intake mode for uranium (ATSDR, 1990).

One of the saddest things I had read recently was the decision by the DOE and ORNL to "downblend" and effectively destroy their small stockpile of uranium-233.

The Nuclear Green Revolution: Uranium or Thorium?

Apr 29, 2012We have seen that the total amount of uranium in the DMSR is 17,500 kgs, compaired to around 100,000 kgs of thorium. Thus we have a little more than a 5 to 1 thorium to uranium to thorium ratio, and a .13 to one U-238 to Th-232 ratio. Thus it is far more likely that a fission produced neutron will hit a thorium than it will hit a U-238 atom.
