AUGUST 16, 2020
a Seattle-based start-up company developing a next-generation modular nuclear reactor with an innovative approach to advancing cost-effective, flexible, and commercially scalable fusion. Nuclear fusion occurs when nuclei of lightweight elements (typically hydrogen) collide with enough force to fuse and form a heavier element—a process that releases substantial amounts of energy with no greenhouse gas emissions and limited long-lived radioactive waste.
