Small nuclear power plants. Round table with Kirk Sorensen, Dan Yurman, Charles Barton, Rod Adams
Show 101 is a bit longer than normal, but I think you will want to listen carefully to every word. I invited some innovative thinkers and observers of the nuclear scene to discuss small nuclear power plants and their potential impact on the energy market.
Kirk Sorensen blogs at Energy from Thorium and is nearly finished with his MS in Nuclear Engineering.
Dan Yurman blogs at Idaho Samizdat: Nuke Notes and also writes for Fuel Cycle Week.
Our conversation ranged over a number of topics including the NuScale Power 45 MWe reactor, Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors, licensing issues, waste handling constructs, Dale Klein’s recent speech including his comments on small reactors, and radiation health effects.
Here are some links to articles or papers discussed:
