Seaborg Technologies is a Danish startup company working to develop and commercialize thorium-based molten salt reactors.[1] Founded in 2015 and based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Seaborg Technologies emerged as a collaboration between a small team of physicists, chemists and engineers with educational roots at the Niels Bohr Institute, CERN, ESS (European Spallation Source) and DTU Center of Nuclear Technologies sharing a common vision of sustainable and cheap nuclear power.[2] Recently Seaborg Technologies and nuclear power (see also energy in Denmark) has seen increased media interest in Denmark,[3] and the Danish government platform includes a statement about removing barriers to research into thorium-based technologies.[4] Seaborg Technologies is named after the American nuclear chemist and Nobel laureate Glenn T. Seaborg.
