SFU Surrey 2740Dual Fluid Reactor: A novel design that will revolutionize nuclear power
Abstract:The Dual Fluid Reactor, DFR, is a novel nuclear reactor concept based on the Generation IV Molten-Salt Reactor (MSR) concept and the liquid-metal cooled reactors (SFR, LFR) with the major improvement that the molten-salt fuel is not used as coolant but the heat is removed in a separate liquid-lead loop. It is a fast reactor, that consumes all fissionable materials like U235, U238, Pu239, natural Thorium, etc. It has much simpler design, and produces much less nuclear waste than currently used nuclear power reactors. It does not emit any radioactivity or green house gases during operation. It costs as much as a coal fired power station to construct and operate. There are more benefits that will be discussed in the talk.
