The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

As society shifts to more sustainable energy forms, we are seeing an international resurgence of interest in Molten Salt Reactor Systems. The MSR concept is recognized as one of the few game-changing technologies that can overcome existing barriers to the adoption of commercial nuclear power. The closure of the fuel cycle, isotope recovery, production of clean water from desalination, and hydrogen, are also promising advancements and applications.
Panelists from several countries with expertise spanning salt chemistry, materials science, radionuclide release management from academia, national laboratories, and commercial organizations will present innovative technology-driven approaches aimed at accelerating MSR development and deployment.
