Nature’s Cornerstone Advantage of Economics of Fuelcor’s Inventions

NOTE: Data that follows are of common engineering knowledge

ENERGY DENSITY IN FUELS, in MJ/kg

Uranium (in breeder) – fission 80,620,000
Thorium (in breeder) -fission 79,420,000
Fuel oil, residential – burning 48

 

WORLD MARKET PURCHASE COST in 2015, in US$/kg

Uranium 115
Thorium 80
Fuel oil 0.7

NATURE’S ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE

ENERGY ADVANTAGE:
AVERAGE NUCLEAR FUEL
FUEL OIL
80,000,000
48
= 1,667,000
COST DISADVANTAGE:
AVERAGE NUCLEAR FUEL

97
0.7
= 139
ECONOMIC ADAVANTAGE:

1,667,000
139
= ~ 12,000

NUCLEAR FUEL

CONTAINS NEAR 12,000 TIMES (!) MORE ENERGY PER US$

THEN OIL

Using this natural advantage, any technical entrepreneur/innovator that is worth his qualification, can realize orders of magnitude reduction in production cost of oil. This is not the matter of risk, but the matter of planning and execution.
