Three all-metal fuel variants:

Up to 10% power uprates and 24-month operating cycles in existing Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs)

Up to 17% power uprates and 18-month operating cycles in existing PWRs

Up to 30% power uprates and 18-month operating cycles in new-build PWRs

Two seed & blanked fuel variants:

Uranium-Zirconium Seed & Thorium-Uranium Blanket
Proliferation resistant and less spent fuel

Plutonium-Zirconium Seed and Thorium-Uranium Blanket
Disposes of reactor-grade plutonium that has been extracted from spent fuel of commercial reactors. Can also dispose of weapons-grade plutonium from military stockpiles.

Currently, Lightbridge has two fuel product lines under development, with each fuel design utilizing Lightbridge’s proprietary metallic fuel rod technology designed for both existing and new build reactors.
