An Introduction to the Physics of the Moltex FLEX and SSR-W Reactors


MoltexFLEX and Moltex Energy Canada are developing two advanced reactor designs using Moltex's Stable Salt Reactor technology. MoltexFLEX are developing a simple thermal reactor in the UK to provide flexible energy at low cost, to complement renewables. Moltex Energy Canada are developing a fast reactor fuelled with spent fuel waste to also address the issue of nuclear waste. In this webinar, Simon and Tom will describe the two molten salt reactors, focussing on the physics underpinning their design. They will describe the physical phenomena that must be understood, the differences compared to currently operating reactor designs and the resulting physics modelling challenges.
