DBI

DBI reactors offer a clean, green, safe and cost effective nuclear solution to the energy crisis and global climate change.

Since the late 1960’s, Hector A. D’Auvergne, DBI’s founder, has been conducting research on the use of the element thorium as a primary nuclear fuel that has the potential to reduce and ultimately eliminate the need for uranium as a nuclear fuel.
