The indicated benefits of Lightbridge’s fuel include:
- A 1,000°C reduction in average fuel operating temperature, compared to conventional uranium dioxide pellet fuel, resulting in dramatic safety improvements;
- Improved heat transfer and fluid flow, increased structural strength, and improved performance during accidents and transients (changes in reactor coolant system temperature and/or pressure attributed to a change in the reactor’s power output)
- 10% more power and longer fuel cycles or up to 17% more power with the same fuel cycle length for existing pressurized water reactors (PWRs);
- Increased revenue and improved profit margins for existing nuclear power units;
- Up to 30% more power with the same fuel cycle length for new build PWRs;
