M. Ragheb - Energy production by fast breeding remains the main goal of the Liquid Metal Fast Reactor (LMFR) to ensure a sustainable long term fissile fuel supply. In addition, the use of LMFRs allows the recycling of the Minor Actinides content of nuclear waste burning them to produce energy and reduce the amounts of disposed waste. Another advantage of the LMFR is its higher thermal efficiency compared with water-cooled reactors.
Less than 200 years earlier, people were walking 2,000 miles on foot, with ox drawn wagons across America to settle Oregon and California. People had been walking like that for the previous 100,000 years and more. With the development of nuclear power from fast breeder reactors, the world now has a limitless supply of clean, affordable, reliable energy to improve living standards and protect the environment.
