Re: Peak oil

A discussion on small, high temperature fast reactors is presently taking place here: http://newmars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=9169&p=11

This has interesting implications for biomass pyrolysis, steam cracking and depolymerisation, which would be greatly aided by a high temperature nuclear heat source able to supply high temperature steam to a cracking reactor along with quantities of hydrogen and oxygen.
