WESTMINSTER, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2022 / BioLargo, Inc. (OTCQB:BLGO), a developer of sustainable cleantech technologies and full-service environmental engineering company, announced that its engineering subsidiary located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, has been working with Ultra Safe Nuclear to help produce the first prototype fuel production systems for the company’s revolutionary new Micro Modular Reactor (MMR®).
A Seattle-based nuclear energy innovator, Ultra Safe Nuclear has invented a “fission battery” – a fourth generation modular nuclear reactor – that can deliver safe, zero-carbon, cost-effective energy anywhere. The MMR® uses ceramic-encapsulated nuclear fuel – Fully Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM®) – an extremely rugged and stable fuel with extraordinary high temperature stability.
Ultra Safe Nuclear recently opened a facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and reports that it will invest approximately $13 million in the community. The facility is focused on building production systems that can efficiently manufacture the ceramic-encapsulated nuclear fuel used in their reactors.
BioLargo Engineering, Science & Technologies (BioLargo Engineering) has been retained to provide engineering design support, fabrication, and integration for the company’s prototype fuel production systems. Thus far, BioLargo has been contracted for work in the range of a half million dollars, to be completed over several months.
Randall Moore, President of BioLargo Engineering, said, “Ultra Safe Nuclear’s reactor represents the cutting edge in clean, safe nuclear energy. At BioLargo, we are focused on sustainable, clean technologies, and we’re thrilled to assist in developing the fuel systems for this impressive technology. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Ultra Safe Nuclear.”
