Over the next few months I will publish four extracts from the book Plentiful Energy — The story of the Integral Fast Reactor by Chuck Till and Yoon Chang.
Reproduced with permission of the authors, these sections describe
and justify some of the key design choices that went into the making the
IFR a different — and highly successful — approach to fast neutron
reactor technology and its associated fuel recycling.
These excerpts not only provide a fascinating insight into a truly
sustainable form nuclear power; they also provide excellent reference
material for refuting many of the spurious claims on the internet about
IFR by people who don’t understand (or choose to wilfully misrepresent)
this critically important technology.
The first extract, on Fuel Choice, comes from pages 104-108 of Plentiful Energy. To buy the book ($18 US) and get the full story, go to Amazon or CreateSpace.
