ADES is a unique combination of molten salt reactor and accelerator driven system technology

ADES (Accelerator Driven Energy Source) combines a water-free thorium-based fuel cycle with molten salt for cooling & heat distribution, excluding vapor pressure.

The compact design fits in a standard shipping container, providing convenient mobility to various locations.

Additionally, the technology uses a disrupting particle accelerator based injector system instead of an uranium based chain reaction limiting radiation to a minimum.

The heat produced within the system can be converted to electricity, hydrogen or any other form of energy.

1

Particle injection

The injector, operating as a particle accelerator, stimulates Thorium-232, inducing its transmutation into Uranium-233.

2

Amplification

The Uranium-233 fission in the molten salt loop releases energy and generates temperatures of up to 900 °C.

3

Heat exchanger

First and second level heat exchangers transfer energy to either electricity generation or hydrogen generation.

4

Electricity

A tertiary loop drives a turbine for electricity generation.

5

Hydrogen

750 to 900°C heat allows the generation of hydrogen.

ADES offers clean and safe technology.

ON/OFF switch

  • ADES has a passive-safe ON/OFF control unit.

AI-powered optimization

  • ADES leverages AI to adjust its power output based on the installation location.

  • ADES thereby ensures optimal performance in diverse environments.

No traditional nuclear waste

  • 80% of thorium is converted into energy. Even the remainder contains raw materials that can be reused. No final repository for nuclear waste is hence necessary.

  • ADES produces 0% transuranic waste of Plutonium, Neptunium, Americium and Curium, … known as “nuclear waste”.

No chain reaction

  • ADES runs subcritically.

  • When the injector impulses the thorium, it causes a reaction - but not a chain reaction - making ADES much safer than conventional nuclear power plants

Minimum maintenance

  • The final ADES module will not need to be serviced continuously.

  • A Safety Security Environment Software will ensure safe control.

ADES is a small, scalable and risk-optimized solution to energy generation
