Kairos Power and Materion Partner to develop & to supply materials for high-temp molten salt reactors
Kairos Power and Materion Corporation have formed a strategic collaboration to develop a reliable and cost-effective supply of salt coolant for high temperature molten salt reactors.
This coolant is a key component of Kairos Power’s fluoride salt-cooled, high-temperature reactors (KP-FHR). Under the agreement, Materion will supply beryllium fluoride, expert technical consultation, key interfaces and support services.
The KP-FHR, an advanced reactor technology being commercialized by Kairos Power, is a zero-carbon source of electricity with cost targets that are competitive with natural gas combined cycle plants. Kairos Power recognizes the commercial potential of this technology and will work with Materion to enable its success.
