An organization focused on applying creative engineering experience with state-of-the-art tools to provide clean energy to the US and the world.
MsNB design is based on
the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment operated at Oak Ridge in the 1960s
But, MsNB has been simplified by removing pumps and valves for enhanced reliability and safety
Recent SAM Modeling demonstrates "walk-away" safe for station blackout transient (see MSNB TECHNOLOGY "Computational Models")
Stable high temperature output to power high-efficiency energy conversion systems to produce electricity and hydrogen
Microreactor with a 10 year operating Life
Versatile nuclear battery energy source
Uninterrupted electricity production to support microgrid stability
Security hardened bunker design
Support regional hydrogen generation for distribution
Explore what we know! We have done our homework.
Explore our Creative Engineering Approach:
Modular-type reactor of less than 20MW
Salt mixtures include fluoride, sodium, lithium, and for MsNB dissolved fuel, that provides a stable liquid at very high temperatures, and atmospheric pressure.
Reactor battery returned to reprocessing facility to recover usable fuel. 95% of the fuel is still available at the end of 10 years!
The MsNB is a novel advanced nuclear power system that will provide clean, safe, reliable energy to the world.
The MicroNuclear team continues to cost-effectively develop and refine the MsNB design producing demonstrated results.
Dr. Marotta provides his unique insight into development of advanced nuclear energy and how the MsNB can support a carbon free energy transition
