Submission + - China starts molten salt nuclear reactor project (energyfromthorium.com)

greg_barton writes: The blog Energy From Thorium blog reports, "The People’s Republic of China has initiated a research and development project in thorium molten-salt reactor technology, it was announced in the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) annual conference on Tuesday, January 25." The liquid-fluoride thorium reactor is an alternative reactor design that 1) burns existing nuclear waste, 2) uses abundant thorium as a base fuel, 3) produces far less toxic, shorter lived waste than existing designs, and 4) can be mass produced, run unattended for years, and installed underground for safety.
