Flibe Energy was incorporated in April 2011 to develop and commercialize the liquid-fluoride thorium reactor. Although based in Huntsville, Alabama, USA, it also has business development operations in Singapore. LFTR technology has excited the world and is becoming synonymous with the more general term “thorium reactor”. Flibe representatives are frequently requested to present at venues across the world.
Flibe Energy is currently completing a conceptual study of the LFTR funded by a major non-profit research institute in the United States.

Headquarters: Huntsville, USA
Reactor type: LFTR

The Molten Salt Reactor Experiment was built in five years when we knew far less about the technology than we do now. We can proceed quickly too.
