Molten Salt Reactor

What Is Molten Salt Reactor

A kind of nuclear fission reactor known as a molten salt reactor, or MSR for short, is one in which the main nuclear reactor coolant and/or the fuel is a mixture of molten salt. There have only ever been two MSRs in operation, and both of them were research reactors in the United States. The Molten-Salt Reactor Experiment of the 1960s aimed to prove the concept of a nuclear power plant that implements a thorium fuel cycle in a breeder reactor, whereas the Aircraft Reactor Experiment of the 1950s was primarily motivated by the compact size that the technique offers. The Aircraft Reactor Experiment was conducted in the 1950s. Increased research into Generation IV reactor designs started to reinvigorate interest in the technology, and as of September 2021, China was on the brink of beginning its TMSR-LF1 thorium MSR. This interest was sparked by the fact that numerous countries had projects using the technology.
