Creating a New Standard

Safety

The StarCore Small Modular Reactor (SMR) uses a unique type of nuclear fuel called TRISO fuel. Each fuel particle is wrapped in three layers of protective graphite and ceramic materials. contains multiple physical layers of protection. This shell prevents the fuel from melting, even under the most extreme heat conditions.

Disaster Proof

StarCore wants to dismantle misconceptions about nuclear power. This isn’t Cold War-era nuclear energy. StarCore’s innovative nuclear technology is deemed Inherently Safe, and it far exceeds rigorous safety requirements.

“If you take these reactor designs and combine them with a fuel that can handle the heat, you essentially have an accident-proof reactor.”

Paul Demkowicz, Idaho National Laboratory

International Atomic Safety Study

The high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) design is classified as Inherently Safe by the International Atomic Energy Agency

A Better Process

Adding Community Value

The adoption of a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) in a remote community or mine site will bring safe, affordable, and carbon-free electricity to that location. Other benefits to the community include high-speed internet, fresh water and year-round, locally-grown produce.
