  • US Nuclear and MIFTI Ready With Fusion System In 36 Months

    Oil Companies Under Pressure By Activists Investing in Fusion Energy US Nuclear and MIFTI Ready with Fusion System in 36 Months

    Los Angeles, CA.  June 3, 2021 – US Nuclear’s (OTCQB: UCLE) partner MIFTI expects within 18 months, to be generating over 1,000 trillion neutrons per pulse in a compact 10 MegaAmpere device with the goal of achieving net energy gain for the first time in the history of humankind. The most important criteria for the successful creation of controlled thermonuclear fusion energy is the generation of thousands of trillions of neutrons; enough to perpetuate a reaction that would achieve breakeven or net-energy-gain, thus generating energy much greater than the energy required to produce the effect. MIFTI’s Staged Z-pinch (SZP) fusion generator is comparatively simple, cost-effective, scalable, and fueled by a low-cost isotope of hydrogen from seawater. All experimental testing strongly indicates that MIFTI’s invention is a viable answer for cost-effective carbon-free power production.

    MIFTI has already achieved extraordinary success, repeatedly generating over 50 billion neutrons per pulse on a 1 MegaAmpere machine and achieving the required temperature, stability, and confinement time.  Advanced computer simulation codes MACH2 and HYDRA predicted 50 billion neutron generation on MIFTI’s 1 MA machine, and MIFTI achieved those numbers repeatedly. Now, MACH2 and HYDRA predict that MIFTI’s 10 MegaAmpere machines will produce over 1,000 trillion neutrons per pulse, and once demonstrated, the transformation of our power production systems should ensue. In addition, MIFTI’s SZP thermonuclear fusion technology will have immediate utility for the cost-effective production of radiopharmaceuticals used in nuclear medicine through their MIFTEC division.

    MIFTI has been awarded a $5 million ARPA-E grant and was recently granted the INFUSE award so that Lawrence Livermore National Lab could use MIFTI’s technology to create a large neutron flux that LLNL requires for the development of their neutron detector. This is significant because it is logical that LLNL would have selected the technology that creates the most neutrons and they selected MIFTI. Estimates indicate that one $25 million US Nuclear and MIFTI 20 MegaAmp SZP Fusion Generator should deliver more neutrons than billion-dollar nuclear fission reactors do.

    In recent news, major oil companies, under mounting pressure to protect the climate, have been investing in nuclear fusion technology. Chevron, ENI, and other major oil companies have already invested in companies developing fusion power generation. Three of the largest oil companies recently faced blows over climate change: a Dutch court told Royal Dutch Shell to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by a staggering 45% by 2030, 60% of Chevron shareholders voted on a resolution reducing emissions, and ExxonMobil lost two board seats to an activist hedge fund.

    MIFTI is at the forefront of the fusion power generation revolution, and its goal is to achieve net energy gain for the first time in history within 18 months. US Nuclear is an investor, strategic partner, and prime contractor, owning 10% of MIFTEC and exclusive manufacturing and sales rights for the medical isotope generators in North America and Asia, and a smaller percentage of MIFTI.

  • US Nuclear and Grapheton’s New Supercapacitors Could Charge Electric Vehicles

    US Nuclear and Grapheton’s New Supercapacitors Could Charge Your Next Electric Vehicle In Seconds

    Los Angeles, CA.  May 24, 2021 – US Nuclear’s (OTCQB: UCLE) partner Grapheton has developed the next generation of supercapacitors using a special patented glassy carbon material. Featuring remarkable charge storage capacity and power density, Grapheton’s supercapacitors could be used in powering and rapidly charging electric vehicle systems. A typical electric vehicle running on lithium-ion batteries takes about 8 hours to fully charge, but a supercapacitor system could be fully charged in under a minute. Batteries still retain the advantage when it comes to higher energy density (ability to store energy), but new advances in supercapacitor technology, such as those made by Grapheton, could allow supercapacitors to hold the same amount of charge like a battery and deliver the charge in just seconds. Grapheton’s unique glassy carbon supercapacitors can have up to 3 million times more capacitance than commercial off-the-shelf capacitors. 

    Supercapacitors have numerous advantages over traditional batteries, such as:

    1. Supercapacitors can be recharged with little to no degradation (supercapacitors can handle over 1 million charge/discharge cycles vs 2000-3000 cycles with regular batteries), which means huge savings in materials and costs
    2. Almost instant charge and discharge times
    3. Weigh less than traditional batteries
    4. Supercapacitors are eco-friendly and don’t contain toxic metals or harmful materials and so avoid the risks of poisoning workers, car owners, or the environment.

    There are already some electric vehicles in trial operation that run off supercapacitors, such as the capabus, which is a new type of electric bus that runs on supercapacitors (or in some versions, a hybrid of batteries and supercapacitors). The capabus runs without continuous lines overhead and instead rapidly charges the supercapacitors at each bus stop along the route- a collector raises from the top of the bus and touches an overhead charging line, which only takes about 30-80 seconds to fully charge. It is estimated that this type of bus has 1/10th the energy cost of a diesel bus which can lead to a lifetime fuel savings of $200,000. The capabuses use 40% less electricity than even an electric trolley bus and cost about 40% less than a lithium-ion bus. Buses are the logical choice for supercapacitor systems for now as they have predictable routes and stop frequently. Advances in supercapacitor energy density could, over time, replace batteries altogether and be used in all forms of portable electronics.

  • US Nuclear Marks Beginning of Age of Space Mining as it Signs Historic Trade Agreement

    US Nuclear Marks Beginning Of Age Of Space Mining As It Signs Historic Trade Agreement

    US Nuclear Proposes Automated Tritium Monitoring System To TEPCO For Huge Fukushima Tank Water Release ProgramLos Angeles, CA.  April 28, 2021 – On April 15, 2021, US Nuclear Corp. (OTCQB: UCLE) signed a historic trade agreement with Solar System Resources Corporation that marked the beginning of the age of space trade and mining.  The new agreement sets preliminary prices for the high-value materials to be extracted.  It also establishes and expands our cislunar and solar system value chain and adds SatRevolution as a new partner.  The agreement is a continuation of the Letter of Intent signed on February 5, 2021, and outlines how US Nuclear and Solar Systems Resources Corp. plan to cooperate building a value chain starting with mining and selling valuable helium-3 and lanthanide metals and other materials from space deposits.

    Solar Systems Resources Corporation Sp. z o. o. is a space mining company that conducts localization, in-situ verification, and mining of space resources.  A third strategic partner, SatRevolution S.A., a leading provider of nanosatellites, is also participating in the construction of the value chain mentioned in the agreement.  The deal, if completed in full, could be worth many hundreds of billions of dollars and will pave the way to a new frontier mining resources in space.

    The agreement is in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding, and highlights include:

    1. Delivery of 500kg of extremely rare helium-3 isotope from space deposits in 2028-2032. The current market price of helium-3 is $16.6 billion per ton.
    2. Deliveries of helium-3 in subsequent years of 300kg (or more) per year.
    3. US Nuclear has received exclusive rights to use, sell, and resell helium-3 and the rare lanthanide metals in North America (including future Artemis Accords non-conflict zones in space), provided by Solar System Resources Corp. from space deposits.
    4. Solar System Resources Corp. received exclusive rights to use, sell, and resell space-related products and services developed by US Nuclear Corp (and current/future subsidiaries) in the European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Middle East, as well as sales made where both buyer and seller are on the Moon, on Mars or in space.
    5. The joint construction of the value chain has begun, starting from space resources to space infrastructure, transport, fusion energy and space propulsion, products and services, and ending with end-to-end business and individual customers on Earth and in space. To this end, the parties will actively seek and invite investors and business partners interested in creating and participating in such a value chain.
    6. In addition to stocking and selling appropriate high-tech products, the parties will carry out joint space mining missions, process and refine extracted materials, and supply other services related to space mining which will allow much higher margins than from the raw space resources alone.
    7. The parties will endeavor to support the US (and allies), the NATO military, and the development of the operational capabilities of the US Space Force.
    8. By 2050, the parties will endeavor to establish a network of space reserves available for civil operations, in particular, the US government/Space Force, including:
      1. Networks of power stations that store electricity and allow for quick charging of docking ships that have been granted access to the reserve.
      2. Liquified gases: O2, H2, CH4, technical gases.
      3. 500 tons of helium-3 isotope, which at the current Earth’s price of $16.6 billion / ton is $8,300 billion, or 39.65% of the US GDP in 2020.
      4. Metals critical to the US economy and security. Planned reserve value reaching up to 1% of US GDP.
      5. Water: the predicted value of the water reserve is 0.1% of the US GDP in 2020 ($ 20.93 trillion), which at a predicted (WGM Report) lunar water price of $0.5 million/ton, equals 41,865 m3 of water.

    Perhaps it is surprising that the parties include regular water as a scarce and valuable trade good.  However, it is predicted that spacers will be willing to pay high prices to vendors who can find, collect, and make deliveries of H2O.

    In addition to water for drinking, water will be needed for industrial and chemical processes.  Water is also useful as a source of deuterium as fuel for nuclear fusion power, and a source of hydrogen for fuel cells in many anticipated tools and equipment for space exploration.

    The polish company SatRevolusion S.A. is already participating in the construction of the value chain mentioned in the contract as a third strategic partner.  SatRevolution S.A. (http://satrevolution.com) is one of the most innovative companies in the field of small satellites, operates globally, has successfully deployed several nano-satellites, and is working on its own mega constellation of earth observation satellites called REC.  The addition of SatRevolution S.A. to the value chain is only the beginning, and US Nuclear and Solar System Resources Corp. are also in talks with other partners from different continents and various industries.

  • Power Makes the World Go Round

    Power Makes the World Go Round

    There is no substitute for power. Where does this power come from?  Oil, gas, coal, water, wind, solar, biomass, and nuclear. As we move ever forward in the development of clean energy our power needs are increasing every year and far outweigh the ability for water, solar, and wind to fully provide the requirements demanded of the global energy grid. Just the effort in reducing pollution by replacing gas-driven vehicles with electric will result in a huge uptick in demand. Where is the power coming from that recharges the batteries in these vehicles? From the power grid fueled by existing energy production.

    The solution is nuclear power. However, nuclear power is currently fission-based with its own risks and waste materials, this is not the ultimate solution.

    Currently, the power grid in the United States is fueled by:

    It is obvious by looking at this chart the primary non-renewable energy sources are enormous and conceiving their full replacement by wind and solar does not currently seem possible.

    Expanding nuclear power is a reasonable solution to producing clean renewable energy. Fission power is a known technology for producing power, requiring highly toxic chemicals which are mined and, in their acquisition, and in the processing required to produce fissile material, expensive. Although fission-fueled nuclear power is a non-carbon producer it also has the critical tradeoff of radioactive waste disposal.

    Fusion nuclear power is a clean option using hydrogen derived from water as fuel resulting in no waste or pollution. Globally, many efforts are currently working on bringing fusion power into a viable energy production solution. This eventuality is considered many years down the road.

    MIFTI (Magneto Inertial Fusion Technologies, Inc.), a US Nuclear Corp partner, has developed a new type of fusion energy production that will bring fusion power to the marketplace years earlier than other efforts.  MIFTI has developed a unique and cutting-edge design for producing fusion power. It will be available for SMR’s (small modular reactors), a current nuclear energy solution proposed using fission-produced nuclear power. The MIFTI design is a clean energy solution without producing waste.

    Vehicles for space exploration require fuel that is not solid or liquid. The new US Space Force requires a clean, high-powered, compact, and safe energy source for spacecraft propulsion. It is currently looking at nuclear power, however, the downside of fission-based nuclear power is the risk, expense, and waste disposal. Fusion power, the power that fuels the sun, derived from water is the solution. Fusion-based nuclear power will eventually replace the non-renewable energy resources in use today.

  • US Nuclear Proposes Automated Tritium Monitoring System To TEPCO

    US Nuclear Proposes Automated Tritium Monitoring System To TEPCO For Huge Fukushima Tank Water Release Program

    Los Angeles, CA.  April 6, 2021 – US Nuclear Corp. (OTCQB: UCLE) has now proposed its unique automated, continuous, ultra-sensitive tritium-in-water monitoring system to Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) for the massive project of monitoring the safe release of the radioactive/contaminated water being stored from the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  There is currently a staggering 1.24 million tons of water containing radioactive tritium being held in more than 1,000 storage tanks across Fukushima- and the 1.37-million-ton storage capacity will be full by 2022.  Japan aims to finalize plans and begin the water release before they run out of time.  US Nuclear believes their tritium water monitoring equipment will provide an effective method of continuously monitoring the release of the tank water and seawater in the area to ensure that the concentration of tritium is safe and does not pose any danger.

    Us Nuclear Proposes Automated Tritium Monitoring System To TEPCOOn March 11, 2011, a rare and powerful 9.0 magnitude earthquake was detected by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which automatically shut down the reactor and started emergency diesel generators to power the pumps which would continue to cool down the fission reactor.  Unfortunately, a 14 meter (46 ft) high tsunami arrived shortly afterward which swept easily over the seawall and flooded the plant and the emergency generators, causing the pumps and cooling to fail, leading to three nuclear meltdowns, three hydrogen explosions, and the release of radioactive contamination. In the decade since the disaster, cooling water has been leaking from the primary containment vessels into the basements of the reactor buildings, with new water being pumped into the reactors to cool the melted fuel.  The cooling water is treated using an advanced filtration system to remove most all of the contaminants, but unfortunately, it cannot remove the tritium contamination, which is why the water has been stored in tanks.

    Japan’s current plan is to slowly release and dilute the tritium contaminated water into the sea, though this plan has been met with wariness by the local fishery industry as well as other nearby countries. Japan is determined to resolve the issue in a safe and effective manner and recently reached out to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on March 23, 2021, for help in reviewing how to safely release the contaminated water.

    To help TEPCO effectively monitor the release of the water, US Nuclear has recently proposed their revolutionary Model Trimaran-H2O which is an automated, continuous fresh or seawater monitoring system capable of measuring tritium in water all the way down to 500 Bq/L (14,000 pCi/L), below the US EPA’s drinking water limit of 740 Bq/L or 20,000 pCi/L.  Except for US Nuclear, there is no other automated, continuous, and real-time tritium in water monitors on the market capable of measuring below safe drinking water limits for tritium due to the complexity of measuring tritium in water.  US Nuclear’s Model Trimaran-H2O utilizes an electrolytic separator and a special sample enrichment feature to iteratively concentrate the tritium and allow for ultra-low-level measurements not possible in other equipment. Furthermore, the system operates using gas proportional counting technology, which is just as sensitive as traditional laboratory techniques using liquid scintillation counting, but does not produce any hazardous mixed waste or requires an expensive scintillation cocktail.

    It is projected that it could take 30-40 years of continuous releases to safely discharge all of the Fukushima storage tank water.

  • US Nuclear Completes $256,626 Shipment To China, Signs New Agreement With CNNC Subsidiary

    US Nuclear Completes $256,626 Shipment To China, Signs New Agreement With CNNC Subsidiary

    Los Angeles, CA. March 22, 2021 – US Nuclear Corp. (OTCQB: UCLE) recently completed a shipment to China of USN’S popular tritium and carbon-14 air samplers as well as portable tritium monitors worth a total of $256,626.

    Furthermore, as part of US Nuclear’s expansion into the Chinese market, US Nuclear signed a new “Cooperation Agreement” on March 1, 2021, with Dalian Zhonghe Scientific and Technological Development Co., a subsidiary of China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC). Together, the companies will work to design the perfect instrumentation to outfit Chinese nuclear power plants. The instruments are planned to be built at a local factory in China to be cost-competitive and will be optimized for Chinese operators based on the local regulations and procedures. This can be a game-changer since currently 80% of nuclear instruments purchased are imported into China at a high cost, and the functionality often does not fit local procedures, regulations, and language.

    US Nuclear already has a local sales office in Beijing, China, and this new cooperation agreement with Dalian Zhonghe will help US Nuclear capture even more of the burgeoning market for nuclear power and radiation detection equipment in China.

    The China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) controls most nuclear sector business including R&D, engineering design, uranium exploration and mining, enrichment, fuel fabrication, reprocessing, and waste disposal. It is also said to be the major investor in all nuclear plants in China.

    China’s Nuclear Power Measurement Market

    China is by far the world’s most active builder of nuclear power with plans to surpass the U.S. as the world’s top producer of nuclear energy by as early as 2030 and expects that nuclear power will account for about 10% of the country’s total electricity generation capacity by 2035 as the country shifts away from coal. China currently has 50 nuclear power plants in operation (48,659 MWe), 15 under construction (14,745 MWe), 39 planned (43,085 MWe), and 168 proposed. Each of these nuclear power plants going into operation requires about $10 million worth of radiation and detection equipment.

    China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) designs and builds nuclear power plants and oversees all aspects of China’s civilian and military nuclear programs.

    US Nuclear’s popular, high sensitivity air samplers are used to continuously collect tritium and carbon-14 from the air in sample collection vials over a period of time. After sample collection is complete, the vials are measured to determine the concentration of radionuclides collected based on the sampling time and flow rate. Air samplers are often used as compliance monitors to ensure that there are no harmful levels of radionuclides exposed to workers or released into the environment.

  • Water and Power at Risk

    Water and Power at Risk

    Drinking water is always at risk.  The EPA states ‘The Safe Drinking Water Act defines the term “contaminant” as meaning any physical, chemical, biological, or radiological substance or matter in water. Therefore, the law defines “contaminant” very broadly as being anything other than water molecules. Drinking water may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. Some drinking water contaminants may be harmful if consumed at certain levels in drinking water while others may be harmless. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.’

    Water and Power at RiskSurface water from lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and groundwater is the primary source of drinking water in the United States. Typically drinking water is treated before moving into the municipal delivery system from which at least 80% of the U.S. population receives drinking water. Approximately 14% of the population relies on private groundwater wells, cisterns, and springs.

    Treated water is subject to the EPA Safe Drinking Water Act and goes through treatment protocols to ensure safety to the public. Private water is primarily in rural areas and is not regulated as is municipal water.  The safety of private water is solely the responsibility of the owner. If any regulation is required it is on a limited state basis.

    There are many sources of potential contamination for drinking water, municipal or private. Naturally, occurring contamination can pose a health risk: bacteria, viruses, nitrate, arsenic, chromium, and fluoride. Radiological contaminants such as uranium, radium, and radon are naturally present in rock formations, subsequently ending up in the water supply.

    Other water contamination sources can include:

    • Terrorist activity
    • Improper waste disposal from hospitals, research facilities, etc.
    • Treatment or leakage from storage sites.
    • Discharges from factories, industrial sites, or sewage treatment facilities.
    • Leaching from aerial or land application of pesticides and fertilizers on yards or fields.
    • Fracking mining from both mining practices and fracking wastewater disposal being reinjected into deep geologic formations via wells specifically designed for that purpose, which in turn contaminates groundwater tables.
    • Accidental chemical spills.
    • Underground storage tank leakage.
    • Improper disposal of household wastes such as cleaning fluids, paint, and motor oil.

    Without appropriate detection, monitoring, and remediation drinking water is always at risk. US Nuclear Corp’s division, Technical Associates, has developed a suite of water detectors providing detection and monitoring of radiological, chemical, and biological contamination. This includes both freshwater, well water, saltwater, and wastewater. These instruments are continuously real-time installed and portable.

  • Think About Taking Your First Fusion Powered Trip To Mars And Back

    LOS ANGELES, CA / March 1, 2021 /

    On February 18, 2021, NASA’s advanced Perseverance rover touched down on Mars and is now seeking evidence of native life on the red planet.  Sooner than you think, human engineers and adventurers may be building the first town on Mars.  While we have made great strides in robotics technology, the next step in the journey is sending humans to Mars.  In order to send a crewed mission to Mars, NASA is focusing on nuclear electric or nuclear thermal propulsion systems for minimizing the time and fuel it takes to travel to Mars and back.

    Jim Reuter, the associate administrator of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate, said NASA is “investing in technologies that could enable crewed missions to Mars, and looks forward to seeing what innovations industry offer in nuclear propulsion.”  NASA released a solicitation on February 12, 2021 asking the industry for preliminary reactor design concepts for a nuclear thermal propulsion system.  Technology development has already begun for sending a crewed mission to Mars as early as the 2030s.  US Nuclear (OTCQB: UCLE) and MIFTI’s fusion power generator would be ideal for this application, as its nuclear fusion power uses a lightweight, safe, and low-cost fuel.  It generates four times as much energy as nuclear fission, and 10,000,000 times as much as chemical rocket fuels.
