X-energy’s CEO, J. Clay Sell, and a group of nuclear energy leaders met yesterday with the President to discuss a path forward to regain U.S. leadership in the international nuclear generation world.
Sell stated the following: “I believe X-energy’s advanced reactor technology, with its intrinsically safe design and meltdown proof core, promises safety and improved economics that will lead the resurgence of the U.S. industry into the global market. As such, I was pleased to join my fellow CEO’s in the meeting with President Trump.
“As world population surges and economies expand, we will be left with a serious energy crisis. We simply cannot do what has always been done and must reclaim global nuclear leadership for our own energy security, national security and to ensure the highest standards of safety for the world. We support the President and his call to win the global nuclear technology race.”
X-energy is an advanced nuclear reactor design and TRISO-based fuel fabrication company. Our high temperature gas-cooled pebble bed reactors require less time to construct, use factory-produced components, cannot melt down, and are “walk-away” safe without operator intervention. In concert with our reactor designs, X-energy is actively producing TRISO-based fuel forms and is implementing pilot scale manufacturing capacities
