Fuel

The primary goal of the HTR fuel development programme at STL is to produce fuel spheres containing thorium and uranium for irradiation testing in the short term, as well as thorium and plutonium in the long term. Thorium based pellet fuels are being tested in the Halden Research Reactor in Norway with the aim of producing the data necessary for licensing of these fuels in the today's conventional reactors .....

Reactor

The HTMR100 Reactor is a High Temperature Gas Cooled Modular Reactor. This Reactor can facilitate a variety of different fuels using the same geometry. The engineering maturity of pebble bed reactors, supported by experimental facilities, makes the HTMR100 as a Generation IV reactor licensable within the next few years. Gas-cooled HTRs (pebble bed and prismatic block) are the only ceramic meltdown-proof nuclear reactors currently available. .....

About Steenkampskraal Thorium (Pty) Limited (STL Nuclear)

Steenkampskraal Thorium (Pty) Limited (STL Nuclear) is a privately owned company with a vision to provide clean, sustainable and safe energy to the world through the development and commercialization of Thorium as a fuel source.

Steenkampskraal Thorium (STL Nuclear) has embarked on a project to produce clean, safe, economical and accessible energy to a wide range of energy consumers. This project is known as the Thorium-100 Nuclear Power Plant (Th-100 NPP). The Th-100 NPP is an inherently safe, modular pebble bed type reactor that burns thorium as fuel and produces less and more acceptable waste compared to other nuclear power generation technologies. The Th-100 NPP can be constructed in a relatively short time at almost any location. It is predicted that the inherent safety features of the reactor simplify the licensing process significantly compared to other nuclear power generation technologies.

STL owns:

-  A concept design of the Th-100 (100 MWthermal ,35 MWelectrical) pebble bed reactor. The Th-100 is a high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) with a thorium-based fuel cycle.
