Synthos and Ultra Safe to cooperate on microreactors for commercial use

Synthos Green Energy of Poland and US-based Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation have signed an agreement to assess the feasibility of using Ultra Safe’s 15-MW micro modular reactor (MMR) energy system to generate hydrogen, heat and power for use in Synthos’s chemical plants and for wider commercial use by various regional industrial manufacturing companies.

Synthos said the agreement is the latest step in its strategy to generate zero carbon emissions at its facilities. The MMR energy system will replace existing plants that use coal or natural gas. In developing the system, Ultra Safe is partnering with multiple, global industrial heavyweights including Hyundai Engineering.
