Solving Energy Hunger with Molten Salt Reactors, Friday, February 8

Ondrej Chvala, research assistant professor of nuclear engineering, will present “Solving Energy Hunger with Molten Salt Reactors” Friday, February 8.

The world is rapidly increasing energy consumption as we raise people from absolute poverty at an unprecedented rate, mostly by an increase in fossil fuel combustion. Professor Chvala will discuss how an advanced form of nuclear power, molten salt reactors, could contribute to cleaner energy in the future.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, February 8 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac. If you would like to receive a permit by US mail in advance of the meeting, please send an email before 10 a.m. Tuesday, February 5 and include your mailing address.
