Certrec Market Research

May Poll Insights

Last month, we asked our audience What type of nuclear reactor is designed to use thorium as a fuel instead of uranium? Overall, the most voted for answer was Molten Salt Reactors at 72 percent of the vote. Gas-Cooled Reactors received the second most votes at 14 percent. Finally, tied in last place were Light-Water Reactors and Solid Fuel Reactors at 7 percent.

The correct answer is Molten Salt Reactors. Thorium has gained attention as a potential alternative fuel due to its abundance and potential advantages in terms of reduced nuclear waste and proliferation resistance compared to conventional uranium-based reactors. Molten salt reactors are well suited to thorium fuel, as normal fuel fabrication is avoided.
