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 unprecedented versatility, TRUfuel™ provides stakeholders with a homegrown solution to fueling the reactors of tomorrow.
Facilitating the reduction of the major contributors of nuclear waste, TRUfuel™ shortens hazardous lifespan of nuclear waste by enabling the elimination of proliferation concerning materials. In tandem, TRUfuel™ exhibits higher burn rates at higher temperatures than other modern fuels, Primed for Molten Salt Reactors, resource and conversion efficiency become the norm, providing sustainable energy efficiency.
Composed of transuranic elements with some uranium TRUfuel™ is the ideal fuel element blend for fast spectrum nuclear reactors running without moderators. With a high burnup, primarily provided by high enrichment (>%20). TRUfuel™ has a greater neutron yield than fissile uranium isotopes providing a higher neutron economy opening the door to a thriving isotope economy.
The TRUfuel™ Potential
Produced through our very own NuCycle™ technology, TRUfuel™ offers a proliferation resistant profile, that can be fabricated in metallic, oxide, or molten salt form. In tandem TRUfuel™ is designed from the ground up to be self-protecting from any proliferation risk. Infused with lanthanides and other fission products that make diversion detectable, TRUfuel™ has a built in radioactive profile that creates a naturally hardened proliferation barrier.
With an approximate equivalence factor of 17 in comparison to 3.5 wt% enriched uranium, TRUfuel™ offers a higher level of efficiency in light water reactor then ever before.
With an approximate equivalence factor of 28 in comparison to 3.5 wt% enriched uranium, TRUfuel™ offers a super charged level of efficiency in fast reactor that will power the future.
