Solving Energy Hunger with Molten Salt Reactors

Ondrej Chvala, research assistant professor of nuclear engineering, will present "Solving Energy Hunger with Molten Salt Reactors" Friday, September 13.

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 Chevala 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 Fridays 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, visit our website at
