1. Thorium
Thorium is much more abundant in nature than uranium. Thorium can be used as a nuclear fuel through breeding to uranium-233 (U-233). When this thorium fuel cycle is used, much less plutonium and other transuranic elements are produced, compared with uranium fuel cycles. Several thorium-fuelled reactor concepts are under consideration.

2. Thinking about thorium | Roger Helmer MEP
I have previously written about thorium, a metal which offers an alternative to uranium for nuclear energy. Its supporters argue that it offers benefits in terms of safety, very little radioactive waste, no material suitable for weapons, and fuel availability not for centuries but for millennia. The biggest barrier to thorium development is not technical, but commercial. Existing players in the nuclear business have a massive investment in uranium technology, and would need big incentives to develop what is, in essence, a parallel substitute technology.

6. Is Thorium the Biggest Energy Breakthrough Since Fire? Possibly. - Forbes
Image via Wikipedia For the past several months, a friend of mine has been telling me about the potentially game-changing implications of an obscure (at least to me) metal named Thorium after the Norse god of thunder, Thor. It seems like he is not the only person who believes thorium, a naturally-occurring, slightly [...]

8. Completion date slips for China’s thorium molten salt reactor - The Weinberg Foundation
SHANGHAI – China has pushed back the intended completion date for its test thorium molten salt reactor, from 2017 to 2020, the head of the project indicated here today.In a presentation at the Thorium Energy Conference 2012, Xu Hongjie, director of the TMSR Center at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), showed a slide stating a 2020 completion date for the 2-megawatt reactor.That’s three years later than the 2017 set out by CAS’ Dr. Chen Kun last August in his TMSR presentation to a group of academics at the University of California Berkeley.According to Dr. Xu’s slide today, CAS has also pushed back the target date for a 2-megawatt molten salt cooled, solid fuel thorium pebble bed reactor, from the original 2015 to 2017 – although Xu seemed to say 2015 in his talk.

9. Safe nuclear does exist, and China is leading the way with thorium - Telegraph
A few weeks before the tsunami struck Fukushima’s uranium reactors and shattered public faith in nuclear power, China revealed that it was launching a rival technology to build a safer, cleaner, and ultimately cheaper network of reactors based on thorium.

12. Chinese scientists urged to develop new thorium nuclear reactors by 2024 | South China Morning...
The deadline to develop a new design of nuclear power plant has been brought forward by 15 years as the central government tries to reduce the nation's reliance on smog-producing coal-fired power stations.A team of scientists in Shanghai had originally been given 25 years to try to develop the world's first nuclear plant using the radioactive element thorium as fuel rather than uranium, but they have now been told they have 10, the researchers said."In the past the government was interested in nuclear power because of the energy shortage. Now they are more interested because of smog," said Professor Li Zhong, a scientist working on the project.

This paper outlines the investigations into molten salt reactors undertaken at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in the 1960s and 1970s. The advantages of the thorium cycle are described and the reason why the work was not taken further is given.The paper outlines the thorium cycle and assesses its potential for warship propulsion by illustrating how a medium sized surface warship might be powered by a reactor plant based on the molten-salt demonstration reactor plant designed by ORNL.

15. Coal Ash Is More Radioactive than Nuclear Waste: Scientific American
The popular conception of nuclear power is straight out of The Simpsons: Springfield abounds with signs of radioactivity, from the strange glow surrounding Mr. Burn's nuclear power plant workers to Homer's low sperm count. Then there's the local superhero, Radioactive Man, who fires beams of "nuclear heat" from his eyes. Nuclear power, many people think, is inseparable from a volatile, invariably lime-green, mutant-making radioactivity.Coal, meanwhile, is believed responsible for a host of more quotidian problems, such as mining accidents, acid rain and greenhouse gas emissions. But it isn't supposed to spawn three-eyed fish like Blinky.
