The concept of MSFR


The CNRS has been involved in molten salt reactors since 1997. Starting from the Molten Salt Breeder Reactor project of Oak-Ridge, an innovative concept called Molten Salt Fast Reactor or MSFR has been proposed, resulting from extensive parametric studies in which various core arranyements, reepieomlScientssm caltogieomleen ienecto, easery -n/servihe i Speititssiuemifiedum fuel cyc…)us anR hathuhas beea-sSpeedumatogurn tric studiebyin th">GenevatioIV ">IntervatiniaFoctrud i="28.p>
