US DOE awards USD2.55M grant to Moltex Energy

Moltex Energy is delighted to announce that it has been awarded USD2.55M in funding by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy to develop Composite Structural Technologies (COST) for the Stable Salt Reactor (SSR). These technologies will be capable of shortening the construction timeline for plants to below three years – bringing the Stable Salt Reactor Wasteburner (SSR-W) even closer to market and quickening its global roll out to help mitigate the effects of climate change. This award follows a promising year for Moltex Energy Canada, which is leading the project to build a first-of-a-kind (FOAK) SSR-W in collaboration with New Brunswick Power.

Moltex will work in collaboration with Argonne National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, Purdue University and Vanderbilt University on the SSR, exploiting innovative technologies such as advanced structural composites and coatings to enable rapid construction.
