Molten Salt Lab
We aim to be the forerunner in innovation and establish strategic partnerships with Institut Teknologi Bandung to build a Molten Fuel Salt Purification Laboratory.
Mr. Bob S. Effendi (COO of ThorCon Power Indonesia) and Prof. I Gede Wenten (Vice Rector for Research and Innovation of ITB) signed the contract on July 2022.
Established at the esteemed ITB Jatinangor, this laboratory spanning a 600 sqm will serve as the incubator for the center of excellence in molten fuel salt technology in Asia. This project will be periodically upscaled to a capacity of 50 tons per batch by 2028, with the governmental entities and state-owned companies as potential stakeholders.
This project is a paragon of collaborative innovation. It is a tangible evidence of the triple-helix program, fostering a harmonious synergy between industry, academia, and government.
ThorCon prides itself on maintaining the utmost safety standards, even at the laboratory level. ThorCon use multiple physical barriers, not to mention high-level safety and security instruments.
