ABOUT KRONOS FUSION
BUILDING MICRO FUSION GENERATORS FOR A CLEAN + LIMITLESS ENERGY FUTURE
Nuclear fusion power — harnessing the power of the stars here on Earth — has long been seen as the ultimate fix for Earth’s energy woes. And no wonder. The hydrogen fuel needed for fusion can be obtained in essentially limitless quantities from seawater. And while power plants that burn fossil fuels spew carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the only waste produced by fusion is helium — a commercially valuable gas.
“Fusion will have one of the smallest possible environmental footprints of any power source,” says Dennis Whyte, director of the Plasma Science and Fusion Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It will be sustainable for the foreseeable future of mankind.”
