- can sustain over 2,000 degrees Centigrade without showing any effect of strain
- can withstand the intense neutron environment in a nuclear reactor
- can reduce the price of electricity by 40% relative to current reactors
- 80% less nuclear waste (1)
New Ceramic Material for a Qualitative Improvement of Nuclear Reactors
Energy Multiplier Module
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2)
- operates at high temperatures yielding approximately 50 percent greater efficiency and a corresponding one-third reduction in materials requirements than that of current nuclear reactors.
- The EM2 utilizes used nuclear fuel, also referred to as “spent fuel” from light water reactors.
- By using spent nuclear waste and depleted uranium stockpiles as its fuel source, a large-scale deployment of the EM2 is expected to reduce the long-term need for uranium enrichment and eliminate conventional nuclear reprocessing.
- EM2 technology is designed to be inherently safe and to automatically shut down using the natural laws of physics.
