Zero Carbon Energy World According to Bill Gates

Bill Gates' startup TerraPower is partnering with Toshiba to build a traveling-wave reactor for carbon emissions reduction.

Food insecurity is predicted for a temperature increase and more volatile weather. Food insecurity leads to distressed populations and increased violence. With the worlds 6.5 billion people growing to a projected 9 billion, the numbers and energy use grow quickly.

The solution, according to Bill Gates, systems entrepreneur and one of the world's leading philanthropists with distressed populations -- yes, the solution is net zero energy. Zero carbon emissions from energy production. How? Nuclear.

Traveling-wave Reactor for Nuclear Energy Generation

Gates' startup TerraPower is partnering with Toshiba to build a traveling-wave reactor.

These traveling-wave reactors run on depleted uranium, rather than the enriched uranium found in light-water reactors, only have to be refueled every 60 to 100 years, and are small enough to fit in a hot tub. it is all part of Gates' quest for zero carbon emissions in the next 40 years.

Focused on burning the "other" 99% of uranium, U238, instead of the 1% U235, you overcome some of the cost factors of nuclear energy generation. Today's supercomputer design tools have made it possible to model the potential use of this fuel source stored in spent-fuel depots.
