Severe Accident Modeling and Safety Assessment for Fluid-fuel Energy Reactors

Project description

First tests on the safety of molten salt reactors

Molten salt reactors (MSRs) are one of several next-generation (Gen IV) nuclear reactor designs under development today. Efforts to revive older nuclear designs have been bubbling up in the EU, Russia and US, and many start-ups are trying to commercialise the technology. Further work is needed to test the safety of the reactor and the nuclear fuel cycle facilities, and demonstrate the path towards technology licensing and deployment. The EU-funded SAMOSAFER project will use advanced numerical and experimental techniques to prove the safety of MSRs. The project, which represents the first step towards large-scale validation and demonstration of the technology, aims to ensure that MSRs can comply with all expected safety requirements.
