The accelerator-driven thorium reactor power station

Additionally the accelerator-driven thorium reactor can burn waste actinides generated in uranium-fuelled reactors, providing sustainable energy for future civilisation. Choosing a sub-critical accelerator-driven system provides safe operating margins for the thorium fuel cycle.

Fuel breeding and waste burnup capabilities of an

Fuel breeding and waste actinide burnup capabilities of a lead‐cooled accelerator‐driven system were evaluated using thorium and reprocessed fuels. The subcritical core simulated was filled with a hexagonal lattice formed by 232 ThO 2 rods and reprocessed fuel rods.

Prospects for Accelerator-Driven Thorium Systems

PROSPECTS FOR ACCELERATOR- DRIVEN THORIUM SYSTEMS Jean-Pierre Revol, Centro Fermi, Rome, Italy & international Thorium Energy Committee (iThEC), Geneva, Switzerland Abstract To meet the tremendous world energy needs, systematic R&D has to be pursued to replace fossil fuels. Nuclear energy, which produces no green house gases and no air pollution, should be a leading candidate.

Accelerator driven thermal nuclear reactor ScienceDirect

01/06/2008· Accelerator driven thermal thorium reactors (ADTTR) The ADNES are energetically feasible, and have some important advantages over the conventional reactors. ADTTR is a particular type in which thorium is used as a fuel instead of uranium. The basic idea behind the concept of this reactor is that neutrons are supplied by an external neutron source (like a spallation 238 U source) to a thermal

Simulation of an Accelerator Driven Subcritical Core with

Accelerator Driven Thorium Reactor (ADTR) has some special properties that make it different from classic reactors. All AD systems consist of three main components: a Subcritical Core (SC), a spallation targets (ST) and an accelerator coupled with SC. Physics of AD reactors, in both structure and operation method, is quite different from other reactors. No control rod is used in these systems

The accelerator-driven thorium reactor power station

The accelerator-driven thorium reactor power station . Erratum . An important erratum to the original paper should be noted. As part of Jacobs' acquisition of the majority of the operations within Aker Solutions' Process and Construction business area in 2011, the company took ownership of the ADTR Power Station. Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical

Cycle du combustible nucléaire au thorium — Wikipédia

Le cycle du combustible au thorium décrit l'utilisation du thorium (232 Th), un élément abondant dans la nature, comme matériau fertile permettant d'alimenter un réacteur nucléaire. Le cycle du thorium présente de nombreux avantages théoriques par rapport à un cycle à l'uranium : le thorium est trois à quatre fois plus abondant que l'uranium, et notamment dans les pays qui sont
