• Affordable

    Thorium is one of the most energy-dense elements found in nature spread over all the continents in large quantities. Abundant and efficient, can Thorium offer an affordable energy source?

  • Safe

    Are there safe methods of using Thorium with no risk of meltdowns or explosions? Can Thorium also be proliferation resistant?

  • Proven

    Research into the use of Thorium started in the 1960’s in the US government's atomic lab. Was it already then proven as a superior fuel?

  • Clean

    Reactors fuelled by Thorium create zero-emission energy. Is a drastic waste reduction in both amount and lifetime enough?

  • Sustainable

    If affordable, safe and clean, does Thorium offer a sustainable solution to the world’s energy problem?

  • Conference

    The best and brightest speakers in the field in world class locations – where will the next ThEC be held?

Greatest Hits: Asgard’s Fire

The Economist’s article, "Asgard’s Fire; Thorium, an element named after the Norse god of thunder, may soon contribute to the world’s electricity supply", made it into the list as one of the most-clicked science and technology article in 2014.

Back to the Future - Advanced Nuclear Energy and the Battle Against Climate Change

To clear their heads after long days and nights of reviewing neutron transport, the mathematics behind thermohydraulics, and other such subjects, they browsed through the crinkled pages of journals from the first days of their industry — the glory days…

The UK Could be onto Something

They were the first to split the atom, and opened the world's first commercial reactor at Calder Hall in 1956. Now, there is a renewed interest in civil nuclear research, based on new generation reactor designs. With a lack of vested interests and a principle-based regulatory the UK has an opportunity to innovate in thorium based nuclear energy.

Live Presentation: On Thorium for Sustainable Nuclear Energy

An excellent opportunity to learn more about the Indian Thorium Energy Program is given as Srikumar Banerjee, who is the former Chairman of Atomic Energy Commission of India, gives a live streamed presentation at TEDxCERN on the 24th of September titled 'On Thorium for Sustainable Nuclear Energy'.

Which One is the By-product: Thorium or Rare Earths?

India, the world leader in Thorium Energy development, and Japan, a high-tech products manufacturer, are now working together to separate Rare Earth Elements (REE) from India’s vast thorium reserves. This can become an important game changer in REE mining industry, where thorium has always been considered as the unfavorable by-product. The collaboration between India and Japan shows that Thorium Energy and high-tech products manufacturing can be sourced from the same ore.

A Thorium 'Battery' Startup

What is the definition of a nuclear battery? A new MIT startup wants to empower remote locations with their nano-nuclear battery at a price competitive with today’s dirty diesel generators.

India’s New Prime Minister Briefed at BARC

India has been making advances in the field of thorium-based fuels, working to design and develop a prototype for an atomic reactor using thorium and low-enriched uranium, a key part of India's three stage nuclear power programme.
