The Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) is a commercially viable MSR that is designed to meet today’s market need – cost competitive, scalable and grid independent civilian heat and power, heat and power at source of demand and not supply. The IMSR is a completely new narrative for civilian nuclear energy: safe, low levels of manageable waste and exemplary proliferation resistance.
Terrestrial Energy was founded in early 2013. Its business objective is to develop its patent-pending Integral Molten Salt Reactor (“IMSR”), and be ready for commercial deployment by the 2020s. The IMSR offers a completely new paradigm for civilian nuclear energy.
