ABSTRACT

Conventional fuel sources for power generation are to be replacing by nuclear power sources like nuclear fuel Uranium. But Uranium-235 is the only fissile fuel which is in 0.72 % found in nature as an isotope of Uranium-238. U-238 is abundant in nature which is not fissile, while U-239 by alpha –decay naturally converted to Uranium- 235. For accompanying this nuclear fuel, there is another nuclear fuel Thorium is present in nature is abundant can be used as nuclear fuel and is as much as safe and portable like U-235.
