Thorium World Nuclear Association

Thorium is much more abundant in nature than uranium. Thorium can be used as a nuclear fuel through breeding to uranium233 (U233). When this thorium fuel cycle is used, much less plutonium and other transuranic elements are produced, compared with uranium fuel cycles. Several thoriumfuelled reactor concepts are under consideration.
