Catherine Clifford of CNBC writes on nuclear startup Oklo.

The C3 Take
  • Oklo is a 22-person Silicon Valley startup that is creating nuclear reactors that run off of nuclear waste.
  • By running on nuclear waste, Oklo’s reactors are more energy-efficient than traditional nuclear reactors.
  • Oklo has recently partnered with the Department of Energy to commercialize its groundbreaking technology.
  • Free market innovation is creating a cleaner energy future.

“The face of nuclear energy is changing, and one of the companies working to redefine what nuclear energy looks like is Oklo. The 22-person Silicon Valley start-up has a plan to build mini-nuclear reactors, powered by the waste of conventional nuclear reactors and housed in aesthetically pleasing A-frame structures.”
