Energy source with future potential

Thorium is an energy source with a great potential to replace Uranium long term. It's a cheaper, cleaner and safer alternative to uranium. A tonne of thorium can produce as much energy as 200 tonnes of uranium, or 3,500,000 tonnes of coal.

Reactors using Thorium are less expensive by up to as much as 20 % compared to tradition nuclear sites, additional savings occur because the design reduces the storage of nuclear waste by up to 50%.
