F*-ing inspiring!
With their fast reactor program, they could be in a situation where they are able to *export* U-233! Yeah!

Excellent video.

Here's a thought.

If the US is going to get rid of its U-233 supplies and can't be persuaded to do otherwise; perhaps the it could be persuaded to simply give the U-233 to India instead of going to great expense to denature it and make it permanently inaccessible?

Hi Charles.

Saurav here.

India pretty much wants to set up a thorium GNEP in the future.

However the substantial introduction of Th-232 blankets in FBRs will begin probably in the 2025-2032.

It is felt that its better to first reach the second stage of our program reach a critical mass before introducing thorium in a big way.

Four more FBRs will come up by 2020. There is also a move to build bigger FBRs in the 1000 MWe category. Doubling time will be reduced by using metallic fuels.
