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.


Energy Independence

Anne Korin, Chair of the Set America Free Coalition and Co-director of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS), believes that one of the solutions to U.S. dependence on foreign supplies is fuel choice and competition of transportation fuels in the transportation sector. With a LFTR, synthetic gasoline and diesel fuel can be produced from a number of feedstocks, including coal, sewage, municipal waste, and Kerogen (oil shale), providing fuel diversity and versatility that will stabilize fuel supply markets.
