Lightbridge Corporation is developing next-generation nuclear fuel technology, Lightbridge Fuel™, to improve the economics, safety, and proliferation resistance of existing and new reactors. Our primary focus is on new metallic fuel rods that we believe are significantly more economical and safer than traditional fuel.
Using Lightbridge Fuel™ results in a lower reactor operating temperature and we believe, adds incremental electricity at a lower cost than any other means of generating baseload electric power.
Power uprate and increased time between refueling outages for existing pressurized water reactors (from 18 to 24 months).
Power uprate without increasing time between refueling outages for existing pressurized water reactors.
Power uprate without increasing time between refueling outages for new build pressurized water reactors.
The global population and its energy needs climb every year. Meanwhile, the climate is a growing concern. The world’s energy and climate demands can only be met if nuclear energy becomes a bigger part of the energy-generating mix.
Our transformational fuel technology can meet rising energy needs. Our fuel design increases safety and capacity while reducing carbon emissions and operator costs.
