Why TAE is Pursuing Hydrogen-Boron Fusion

Why TAE is Pursuing Hydrogen-Boron Fusion

Reporting on challenges with tritium fuel for fusion, Science notes TAE Technologies has “decided to simply forgo tritium” to “use plain hydrogen and boron.” TAE’s hydrogen-boron fusion will “require higher temperatures than [deuterium-tritium], but the [company thinks] that’s a price worth paying to avoid tritium hassles” and produce the cleanest, safest fusion reaction.

Working on nuclear fusion is a ‘moral obligation’ for this CEO

Michl Binderbauer has made an audacious promise. Within the next decade, his company, TAE Technologies, will create a nuclear fusion reactor that delivers energy to the power grid.
“It’s not false confidence,” said Binderbauer, the CEO of TAE. “The building blocks we need — they’re coming.”

The promise of fusion

Google-backed TAE Technologies, which has raised $880m (£650m), predicts its reactors will be commercialized within ten years. In experiments, the company has already reached more than 50 million degrees Celsius, and a new prototype will operate at more than 100 million degrees Celsius. “Our livelihoods depend on delivering – or we’re gone,” says Michl Binderbauer, chief executive of TAE Technologies, which has operated since 1998.

Fusion race kicked into high gear by smart tech

Fusion race kicked into high gear by smart tech

A US company is speeding up the path to practical fusion energy by using Google’s vast computing power. By applying software that can improve on its own, TAE Technologies has cut down tasks that once took two months to just a few hours. Google has lent the firm its expertise in “machine learning” in order to help accelerate the timeline for fusion. “I want to deliver fusion first, but anyone who does it is a hero,” TAE’s chief executive Dr Michl Binderbauer told BBC News.

Another Step Towards Breakeven Fusion

Another Step Towards Breakeven Fusion

With Google’s assistance using machine optimization and data science, TAE achieved the major goals for their fusion platform, Norman, which brings us a step closer to the goal of breakeven fusion. They have completed a design for an even more powerful machine, which they hope will demonstrate the conditions necessary for breakeven fusion before the end of the decade. TAE has succeeded with two complete machine builds during our collaboration, and we are really excited to see the third.
