End Dependence on Foreign Oil
A LCMSR (Liquid Core Molten Salt Reactor) can provide affordable heat to create cleaner and lower cost synthetic fuels (vs. oil derived gasoline).
Excluding electricity generation, liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon fuels comprise over 60% of US energy consumption. For many applications, these fuels will continue to be the most economical and highest performance energy source for decades to come even with rising petroleum and falling natural gas prices. If we produce gasoline from feedstocks other than oil, then we can help eliminate volatility in the gasoline market through diversity of sources.
