Ben Lindley is a researcher at the Engineering Design Centre (EDC). He works on using closed thorium based fuel cycles in conventional or advanced light water reactors (LWRs) to incinerate a very high proportion of transuranic nuclear waste. His main research interests are reactor physics and thermal hydraulics of PWRs and reduced-moderation water reactors. A patent application has been filed on a method of potentially incinerating a very large proportion of nuclear waste using thorium in conventional or modified LWRs. Ben also works with other EDC researchers on Accelerator Driven Subcritical Reactors.
