How many Thorium m&m's do you Consume?


Rusty Towell, a professor in Physics at ACU, presents the benefits of the LFTR (Molten Salt Reactor) in a recent TEDx speech.
He starts by using a comparison to m&m's to describe the...

Seminar – Can Thorium Reactors Produce Electricity Efficiently?

What are the opportunities for future thorium-based power generation? This question will be discussed in a seminar organized by the famous Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences.

The Organic Farmer’s Solution: add some Thorium

If you have had the pleasure to meet Trevor Blench, surely you would agree that the words 'kind' and 'humble' describe him best. He speaks with a calm voice, is very thoughtful, and glows a certain joy for life that is truly extraordinary.

Third Announcement - New Dates - ThEC15 in Mumbai


Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in association with International Thorium Energy Organisation (IThEO) and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) proudly announces the international Thorium Energy Conference - ThEC15 under the aegis of Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI) in Mumbai, India during October 12-15, 2015.

New dates for ThEC15 in Mumbai: 12-15 October, 2015


For a very special reason we are able to...

Europe has a Thorium MSR Project - SAMOFAR

TU-Delft, host to a symposium on the perspectives of Thorium in the Molten Salt Reactor in Deft today, presented the European Thorium MSR Project - SAMOFAR - due to start in August 2015.

This announcement is clear sign of European interest in Thorium MSRs. It cannot be seen as a national program like the ones in China and India but is a good start and hopefully will lead to a host nation within EU stepping in as a major actor.

Indian Molten Salt Breeder Reactor (IMSBR) Initiated

India has both the world’s largest thorium reserves and program to utilize it. The program is famously divided into three stages of which the ‘ready to be built’ Advanced Heavy Water Reactor (AHWR) is the beginning of the third stage.

In the newly published Thorium Energy Report (ThoriumEnergyReport.org) India reported that it has initiated studies on a conceptual design of the Indian Molten Salt Breeder Reactor (IMBSR).

Thorium In a Nutshell

Kurzgesagt is German for “in a nutshell” and the name of a group who makes science storytelling beautiful.
Their latest video gives you 3 reasons why we should continue using nuclear energy:

1 Saves lives: best energy source in energy per deaths.

2 Reduces CO2: 64 giga tonnes less CO2 because of nuclear.

3 New technologies: Thorium Reactors could maybe solve the problems altogether.

ThE Report provides an overview of all achievements in 2014 and the goals for 2015. Here are some of the highlights...

Thorium Energy Report

The Thorium Energy Report is in the making. It will cover all major efforts in the field, presenting a comprehensive overview. Target audiences are non-scientific leaders in all related fields. It will be marketed and made freely available online to secure the best possible outreach. The first report will be published soon, with new reports published on a regular basis.


We would very much like to help promote all outstanding efforts, yours especially. Please email us at info (at) itheo.org for instruction how to participate.
