Billionaires’ advanced ”Natrium” nuclear reactors planned for Wyoming.

Power companies run by billionaire friends Bill Gates and Warren Buffett
have chosen Wyoming to launch the first Natrium nuclear reactor project on
the site of a retiring coal plant. TerraPower, founded by Gates about 15
years ago, and power company PacifiCorp, owned by Warren Buffett’s
Berkshire Hathaway, said on Wednesday that the exact site of the Natrium
reactor demonstration plant was expected to be announced by the end of the
year.

Nuclear power experts have warned that advanced reactors could have higher risks than
conventional ones. Fuel for many advanced reactors would have to be
enriched at a much higher rate than conventional fuel, meaning the fuel
supply chain could be an attractive target for militants looking to create
a crude nuclear weapon, a recent report said
.
