How a Canadian Small Reactor Will Support Industrial Decarbonization

Darrell Proctor of Power reports on a Canadian small modular reactor company.

The C3 Take
  • ARC Clean Technology Canada has recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Alberta government to deploy its small modular reactor (SMR) in the province.
  • ARC’s SMR, the ARC-100, is a sodium-cooled fast reactor which allows the reactor to operate more efficiently and at higher temperatures with lower pressure (which also improves safety).
  • The ARC-100 also has a small physical footprint which makes it ideal for industrial applications and rural locations.
  • The company will look to deploy its SMR in Canada in the early 2030s.

“The ARC-100 is an advanced small modular reactor (aSMR) with a very simple design and small footprint, approximately 10 acres. It is a sodium-cooled fast reactor (SFR) which uses liquid sodium as a coolant instead of water. This allows the coolant to operate at higher temperatures and lower pressures than current traditional reactors which improves the efficiency of the system.  Our technology is an advanced reactor and meets the goals for Generation IV nuclear technology: improved safety, sustainability, efficiency, and cost.”
