Focusing on commercializing the case for a closed fuel cycle, CURIO® is going to CLOSE THE CYCLE® with NuCycle®, to the production of proliferation hardened plutonium-fueled reactors and alternate fuel based molten salt reactors, we envision a future where the USA leads the world in decarbonization.
The 850 metric tons of transuranic based isotopes accumulating annually in the American spent nuclear fuel represents the energy equivalency of 1% of the global capacity of natural gas reserves. With enormous potential for fast reactor breeding, UNLIMITED energy awaits.
With the aim of producing energy at a 90% capacity factor, an advanced 1GWe reactor can generate 7.88 billion kWh of annual electricity.
Coupling that with process heat and other next-gen applications; and the future of nuclear energy production is bright indeed.
CURIO™ offers innovative solutions addressing the main challenges in the nuclear sector.
With NuCycle®, CURIO® is committed to sustaining existing nuclear infrastructure and facilities, investing resources to keep reactors online and humming along.
