Who We Are

NANO Nuclear Energy Inc. is an emerging microreactor technology company led by a world class nuclear engineering team developing smaller, cheaper and safer advanced portable carbon free energy solutions utilizing proprietary novel reactor designs. NANO Nuclear is committed to incorporating the latest technology into its own proprietary novel reactor designs, intellectual properties, and research methods. NANO Nuclear’s subsidiary, HALEU Energy Fuel Inc., will focus on the future development of a domestic source for a High-Assay Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) fuel fabrication pipeline for the broader advanced nuclear reactor industry and providing fuel to power NANO Nuclear reactors. NANO Nuclear’s products in technical development are “ZEUS”, a solid core battery reactor, and “ODIN”, a low-pressure coolant reactor, each of which represent advanced developments in portable, on-demand capable, advanced nuclear micro reactors.

Our Vision

NANO Nuclear Energy is looking to enter the µSMR market by focusing on designing its own nano nuclear reactors which could be deployed to remote locations to provide energy to residential, commercial, major mining, industrial, shipping, oil and gas, military, medical use and construction projects. Additionally, the Company has the bandwidth to invest in optimization research for µSMRs, and seeks collaborative partnerships to which it can deploy financing, provide personnel, and advance technology and development opportunities.

NANO Nuclear Energy intends to progress its collaborative research projects towards development, rigs and models, zero-power reactors, and ultimately towards reactor manufacture and deployments. The Company envisions readily replaceable mobile reactors which it can provide to customers, along with operative personnel, to power projects, residential and commercial enterprises, and major development projects.

About Flexile Classic

“SMRs offer a range of different benefits which complement large reactors. Given their size, small reactors are well-suited for remote areas and in grids that are too small to host a gigawatt-scale nuclear reactor.”

“A further benefit of SMRs is the prospect of so-called modularity, with most, if not all, components of the reactors being manufactured and assembled in a factory before being shipped to a site to be installed.”

Introducing ZEUS – NANO Nuclear Portable Advanced Micro Reactor

Featuring a fully solid core, removing heat through thermal conduction, eliminating the need for coolant and pumps. The reactor utilizes the simplest design with the least moving components and ensures the immobilization of fission products. ZEUS represents the future evolution of µSMRs and nuclear energy generation. The novel compact design will fit within an ISO container, taking advantage of the existing transportation infrastructure to allow for easier shipping and delivery to customers. The reactor will be modular and able to connect with local power grids or power systems, so multiple reactors can be deployed to an area.

µSMRs produce between 1 and 20 megawatts of thermal energy that could be used directly as heat or converted to electric power. Generating clean and reliable electricity for commercial use or for non-electric applications such as district heating, water desalination and hydrogen fuel production, µSMRs are a highly adaptable and portable alternative to traditional nuclear reactors.
