Our inspiration comes from Dr. Alvin Weinberg. Dr. Weinberg was a pioneering nuclear physicist, who worked on the Manhattan Project and later became the director of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He later served on the US governments President’s Science Advisory Committee under both Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.
To make this energy source both clean and extremely cheap, Dr. Weinberg believed the link between nuclear power and nuclear weapons would have to be severed. And the way to break that link was the Thorium Molten Salt Burner.Richard Martin, MIT Technology Review, 2 August 2016

Now is the time for Planet Earth
…for everyone to become involved in a worldwide movement to reduce or reverse the effects of climate change.
Now is the time that the merging of technologies makes it possible to make a real impact and benefit to our planet.
Power generation from Thorium Molten Salt technology combined with blockchain technology seamlessly maximises the advances in both. What is created is transparency and openness for worldwide energy supply.
This will revolutionise the way energy works in the world and set the scene for many hundreds of years to come.
It can be done.
It has been done before.
We are doing it again.
A Blockchain for Thorium
We have built the world’s first fission fuel delivery energy and management system based on Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technology. We call it Honey BadgerTM.
Honey BadgerTM provides transparency, openness and security to energy production for fission from molten salt technology.
Using blockchain technology we are put the energy from Thorium into the public domain, forever.
Why use Thorium?
A properly configured machine that burns Thorium is called a Molten Salt Burner. Heat is generated by burning the Thorium in a fission process. This heat can be used to make electricity and can also be used for additional purposes like industrial heating or centralised domestic heating systems. Power generators that use Thorium Molten Salt as their fuel have three important differences to traditional solid fission fuel generators:
- The Thorium fission energy process makes it very difficult to make weapons. It is intrinsically proliferation resistant
- Thorium Molten Salt Burners can not have a meltdown – they are already molten
- Thorium Molten Salt Burners can not explode sending material into the environment
There is more than 1,000 years of Thorium supply on our planet, for everyone.
Compared to other fuels, Thorium Molten Salt is simply incredible at releasing energy:
- Energy from Thorium Molten Salt has an energy return ratio of 2,000 to 1
- For solid fuel fission, it is 75
- For coal and gas, it is around 30
- For wind it is a mere 3.9
- For solar it is only 1.6

Two more significant advantages of Thorium Molten Salt Burners is that they can burn up the existing stockpiles of current spent nuclear fuel and the tiny amount that remains needs only 300 years containment, rather than 200,000 years!
What about renewable energy?
Renewable energy is only part of the solution to the looming energy crisis. In this short clip Bill Gates shows his frustration that some people do not understand that renewables alone are not the answer.
Note this is from someone that invested $1bn of his own money into the renewable energy sector.
