Nuclear power

The report's authors argue that federal agencies should be allowed to enter into power purchase agreements of up to 30 years for power purchased from SMRs. The report also makes policy recommendations that would essentially provide subsidies for SMRs. The report recommends authorization of the DOE Loan Program to include SMRs and recommends that nuclear power be included in the definition of "clean power" and, if the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan survives, a rule should be added that would encourage states to support SMRs by giving them "credit for the zero-carbon energy."

The report also recommends that the DOE and the Department of Defense collaborate to identify facilities that can benefit from hosting or having an SMR near the facility to achieve added energy resilience.

I'm aware this is a bit dry but let me put it into simpler terms: Trump is going to have the Dept. of Energy classify nuclear as clean power (crushing Democrats' balls in the process) while opening the door to government facilities being allowed to use SMRs for power starting in the 2030s. These would initially be large complexes like Homey Airfield or Cornell Hospital, but could easily be applied to things like electrified railroads (made plausible if Republicans rip apart antitrust laws and let RRs sell excess power to the grid) or EV plane charging stations (see NASA's recent X-57 program). This also puts on a longer, generation-spanning path to more exotic things like nuclear powered aircraft or trucks.

Tesla did not invent "free energy". There is no such thing.

Some nuclear reactor designs are better than other, more fail safe. The old GE models that have been pushed have never made a profit, and they are environmental disasters, each one. The new SMR designs were specifically designed to address those shortcomings. However, as we have seen, there can be a huge gulf between a nuclear engineer's promises, and what's delivered.

Additionally, in terms of nuclear fission, there seem to be energetic processes and emanations which we simply do not fully understand. These occasionally show up as 'anomalies'. Any new nuclear reactor design would have to be very, very safe before I would sign off on it.

There does remain an energy source readily available to us, yet untapped: deep geothermal. It requires alot of initial capital outlay, but it simply always works, works well, and is in every way safe. This solution has been around awhile…

Neat. Could extending fracking holes (if near a city) be a cheaper way of digging? Subsidies for this would probably be better than solar or wind 1000x, because you know, it actually works.

Waste isn't a problem if fucks are given to its disposal.

LFTRs have no high pressure to contain (no water coolant), generate no combustible or explosive materials;
A simple Freeze Plug melts in emergency, the molten fuel drains to passive cooling tanks where fission is impossible;
Reactor materials won’t melt under normal or emergency conditions, radioactive materials stay contained. (Even if a bomb or projectile breaks the reactor vessel, it makes a spill that cools to solid, doesn’t interact with air or water, with most fission products chemically bonded to the salt);
LFTRs can passively cool even without electricity (never uses water);
Salt coolant can’t boil away (boiling point much higher than reactor temperature), so loss of coolant accidents are physically impossible.
The molten fuel expands/contracts with temperature changes. Higher fission rate increases the temperature, which makes the fuel salt less dense, lowering the fission rate — all Molten Salt Reactors are very stable (high
Thorium is cheaper too. The lftrs are cheaper to build and maintain. They can also dispose of other nuclear materials (fast spectrum MSR). Easier to place, no steam containment, no water required.
They can be used to desalinize water. Hell, they can even use them to make fuel out of water and carbon dioxide.

We can eliminate it, it was just previously made illegal by Jimmy Carter due to proliferation concerns (plutonium is usully produced during reprocessing) .

Actual nuclear waste is comparatively much shorter lived and more energetic, and occurs at a much, much lower volume than the shit we're currently burying in yucca.

Nathan Perez

Compare that to Thorium. While the energy density of Uranium is "huge" it is inefficient as fuck as we can't get all that energy out of it.

Incorrect, you're confusing fuel cycles for the fuel. Fast-neutron reactors can take advantage of a multitude of fuels and are much more efficient than the traditional PWR and other related designs.

In order to understand the science behind nuclear energy, you need to understand and isotopes "neutron cross section," which is measured in barns; the isotope's decay chain (how long it's lived and what it breaks down into); and neutron speed and population.

Jordan Turner
Jordan Turner

There aren't any restrictions anymore, it's just prohibitively expensive to run any kind of plant. I think you're mistaking what I said in my post: I'm not advocating for vitrification and burying waste, I'm saying that stuff we're labeling as waste is actually fuel in fast-breeder reactors.

Over regulation is killing the industry.

Bentley Peterson
Bentley Peterson

That's what I get for trying to simplify it. We are currently discussing nuclear power as fuel and Trump declaring it "clean."
"Clean" is debatable for many reasons and they are being discussed both pro and con. We have NEW technology that we don't use because we want to keep weapons programs going. We use INEFFICIENT AS FUCK reactors and fuels for our power and weapon needs.
We have studies and comparisons comparing the fuel and ultimately USABLE energy. Uranium is an interesting substance, consisting overwhelmingly (99.3%) of an isotope, uranium-238, that is not fissile. But if uranium-238 captures a neutron it becomes plutonium-239, which is fissile. One more neutron into the plutonium and you get a fission reaction and energy. So you can imagine that it takes two neutrons to “burn” uranium-238. But there is a very small amount of uranium (0.7%) that consists of the isotope uranium-235, which is fissile and only requires one neutron to fission. Despite constituting such a small fraction of uranium, this U-235 is where nearly all of our nuclear energy comes from today. And the fact that we are burning up this small resource is one of the basic reasons that our nuclear infrastructure is not sustainable. It’s also one of the basic reasons that today’s reactors make so much nuclear waste.
Plus, every 18 months you have to put in another 33% fuel for a lot less output than what the same weight of thorium will give you.

It can go many ways. Devil is in the details and more often than not it's used to give corporations the carte blanche to do what they want. Libs take it to one extreme and the corporate shills take it to the other.
Hopefully this will allow more and newer technologies which ARE cleanER to be utilized without becoming prohibitively expensive.

Knew you'd be here, thoria shill.

First, I fucking hate that youtube poster. Always titles and thumbnails as if actually answering thorium shills. Yet video content is always just more thorium shilling itself. Thinks they're clever, and slowly spams out all other dissent. Guess thoria shills are worth their shekel salt, they do seem to be controlling the room.

Second, fuck you. Every single time. Fucking thorium lies. Academic shitposting for more currency to shitpost thorium ads – that's what thorium is, that's what thorium was in the 1960s, and that's all thorium ever will be (until Whites, not kike and designated academics, decide to solve it). Fact: Thorium and molten salt reactors are orders of magnitude more dangerous. Fact: Your coolant pumps will still fail (because you think salt plugs will save you, you'll go all Chernobyl and underbuild and underman, again). Fact: Your salt frozen plugs are shit and won't work, and now you'll have radiosalt pipe -and- radiosalt pump problems, which will fail outside your damn plugs. Every single time. More facts: You will never solve the exotic trace isotope poison separation problem, you will never attain efficiency because of it, and you are still crucially dependent on classical uranium to start your reactor anyway.

So I say again:
<Fuck you.
<Do not do it here.
<That X is where you are going to die (if any molten any salt any).
<That 2nd Modal is where your thoria ends (disaster by faster exotic reflector yields)
..
<Fuck you and your bait. Fuck you and your stupidity. Fuck you and your memetics. Take this, this post, as your reply. And fuck yourself with it. That X is -exactly- where you are going to die. It's where you died last time; It's where you died the time before that; It's where Monju died (pipe failure); It's incidentally related to where Chernobyl and 3Mile died (pump failure); It is where you are going to die, but significantly faster than all of these peers. Because you are, in fact, somehow more stupid.
..
<Your pipes will fail. Your pumps will fail. Your containment ice-butt plug will be pointless, in the wrong spot, and hopelessly outmatched by your sheer stupidity. Your inane and putrid simulations of thought are incomplete firstly, incorrect secondly, and racked full of confabulation.
..
<Fuck you.
<Do not do it here.
<Period. Complete.
<End message.

We just need to Colonize the Moon and mine Helium-3. This gas is emitted by the sun and can be used as fuel for a cold fusion reactor (cold means, no radioactive waste or radiation).

This means atomic rockets and space faring civilization. The cost of the moon base would be 1/3 of the Iraq War….. think about that….

Respectfully I question this "Free Energy" Tesla thing. If it was real, someone would have tried to emulate it on some degree.

It just takes one breakthrough, then he could share it on the web. Instantly everyone would copy it and have free energy.

I don't think anybody today could get it. Also, he's been buried; very few people even knew about him before about 10 years ago when the internet got big.

Thorium does not fail in an uncontrolled manner like uranium reactions. The uranium fuel rods needs to be kept cooled, even the "spent" rods. Thorium needs to be kept energized/bred to kick it up to produce energy. It fails into an automatic shutdown. Further there are different types of thorium reactors and you shouldn't confuse the technology. Molten Salt Fueled reactors are different from molten salt COOLED reactors.

The liquid fluoride thorium reactor (acronym LFTR; often pronounced lifter) is a type of molten salt reactor.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molten_salt_reactor
A molten salt reactor (MSR) is a class of generation IV nuclear fission reactor in which the primary nuclear reactor coolant, or even the fuel itself, is a molten salt mixture. MSRs can run at higher temperatures than water-cooled reactors for a higher thermodynamic efficiency, while staying at low vapour pressure.

If you knew anything about the military, you'd know that radiation is the least harmful thing they are likely to come in contact with. The dust from all sorts of heavy metals, unburned propellant, and explosive chemicals are first and foremost what you should suspect to be causing soldiers problems while they are still in the service. The exception for this is people in the navy that are tasked with pushing barrels full of mystery off of ships into the middle of the ocean.

Things like depleted uranium are first and foremost a toxic chemical hazard. The minor amount of radiation it gives off is a red herring, and only comes into play when it's a fine dust that sticks in the lungs for a few decades. The vast bulk of short and long term affects attributed to it, are from it's toxicity rather than radiation. Tungsten, which replaced DU due to being non-radiative, has very similar effects.

If the US military is given a choice between a chemical or material that is mostly safe, vs an alternative that produces horrific mutations and diseases for a 10% increase in efficacy and 10 times the cost, it'll take the second one pretty much every time.

And now you understand why it's so hard to contain highly radioactive materials. The are constantly transmuting into different (often highly reactive) chemicals (some of which are gasses), and the neutrons they give off destroy not only their chemical structure, but the structure of anything around it. A chunk of malleable radioactive metal will become brittle and porous with enough time. Really nasty stuff, and why every containment effort will always fail and start leaking, to the complete "surprise" of the people that designed it.

99% of what you see regarding nuke plants is marketing horseshit. In the engineering business you have to quickly come to terms with the huge difference between what the people selling new designs claim and what they can actually deliver. That is why utilities spend billions testing these things before putting them into production. If all these meme reactor designs lived up to the hype, they would already be in service. Sales Engineers are completely full of shit.

Cameron Kelly

Nuclear reactors are extremley efficient and safe, if your worried about alittle radiation, know that people living closer to coal plants are exposed to higher amounts of radiation than reactors. Also what about all those nuclear bombs we sleep on every night, just waiting to completley destroy the world?

Fuck off you nuke shills poisoning white populations.
Nukes = kikes. Simple as fuck.

nukes aren't going away, and thanks to SMRs it's much more likely your individual town will own one by 2050 than ever before

With all the space the US has, it's probably going to be the other way around, Build an NPP and then a town for the workers.

dubs checked. the first nuclear reactor in moorpark ca used KaP because it could transfer a lot of heat. There was a melt down at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory which was the USA's first reactor. KaP didn't work out so well because of the meltdown so they don't use that for heat exchange in reactors anymore.

You should look up molten salt reactors using thorium, user. the jews just use uranium so they can make it into nukes.

Can you elaborate on this Antarctic reactor stuff? Is there any more evidence?

We just need to Colonize the Moon
Wrong. We either need our robots to colonize the moon, or we need to colonize the Kuiper belt. The moon is rich in titanium oxide which can be processed for near-Earth space construction. However, long term space exploration and colonization means asteroid mining.

Fuck LEO space stations. We need factories in the Kuiper belt. Plus it would be nice to have a few billion miles of space with a couple gas giants and lots of moons between us and any potential space industry catastrophe.

Reminder that the more radioactive the waste, the less time it remains radioactive, higher radiation means it's giving off lots of energy very fast and depletes itself rapidly.
You can either have highly radioactive waste that burns itself off in a few years, or waste that's radioactive for a hundred years because it's decaying very slowly.

General ban on Nuclear development and research? General stigma on nuclear development and research?

Oh but user,using thorium in LFTR would require a large amount of people to quit being retarded
and that is impossible
instead i have hopes for putting cheaper than ever solar panels and batteries on people's properties

waiting decades - if not centuries for a negligible return on the REM used to put the mining/processing equipment+fuel in the kuiper belt
