Advances in Thorium Nuclear Reactors

India and China have made considerable progress in developing thorium-based nuclear reactors, recognizing their potential as safer, more sustainable alternatives to uranium reactors. India’s program focuses on the Advanced Heavy Water Reactor using thorium and a small amount of uranium-233, while China’s involves pioneering molten salt technology in the Chinese Thorium Molten Salt Reactor project. Alongside, companies like Copenhagen Atomic are also advancing thorium technology, facing challenges like isotope production and corrosion-resistant materials.
