ADVANCED NUCLEAR 101 : Explains the different CHOICES we have to make nuclear power. Nuclear power can be done in many different ways with different fuels like thorium or spent fuel from Light Water reactors.
Advanced nuclear technologies are developing more rapidly than most experts expected. In 2015, 48 companies and institutions backed by more than $1.3 billion private capital are working to build the next generation of nuclear reactors. But what are these innovators trying to create? Here we provide a basic breakdown of the most promising designs, including how they work and what benefits they bring.

I think we need a combination of WAMSR, LFTR, and IFR reactors to make the best use of all the fissionables.

+Ike Bottema they are overly proud of there new AP 1000s wich get there top billing . For a PWR the AP 1000 is not a bad plant . I just wish they had other options for a NPP . The MCFR will probably be a Uranium Plutonium fuel cycle. It can use Thorium but it is unlikely as it gives no advantage & I think they want to burn up spent fuel from LWRs.
