Mark Halpers travels along the


Thorium Trail

The lady and the thorium

Baroness Bryony Worthington, the Thorium Lord

DOE-China Collaboration

High temperature, molten salt COOLED. Not fuelled.


However

Westinghouse - Commercial
Adviser

Regis Matzie, retired Westinghouse CTO,


chairs Westinghouse-led DOE-China
commercial advisory panel. MOLTEN SALT
COOLED

This is a slide of a slide


Chinas expected molten salt cooled and fueled
timeline as of Aug., 2012

This would change a few months later when in


October.

Chinas Xu Hongjie indicated


not so fast

A slide of Xu Hongjies slide,


Oct. 30, 2012

Presented at Thorium Energy Confernce, Shanghai

Taking the heat

Jiang Mianheng: China will use TMSRs for electricty


AND heat. Will assist in coal gasification, hydrogen
production, etc

Do they run Twitter?

No - Its Transatomic Power

Fast talk

Ive got a reactor for you

Nuclear Power Icebreaker

Not so moderate

Geoff Parks and Ben Lindley from the University of Cambridge


say thorium will last a long time in a reduced moderation water
reactor.

Kinoshita

Nuclear hear: Good on paper

The Norske Skog paper mill next door to Halden


uses heat from the test reactor for industrial
processes.

Kids say the darndest things

Thorium is the future. Even 13-year-olds such


as Katie Hudek (12 in this picture) know that.

Addendum
Will add:
- About 5 slides of details on the different
reactors from Terrestrial, TTS, Transatomic,
etc
- Maybe something about The Good Reactor
