High-temperature modular reactors (850 degrees Celsius), GT-MHRs are cooled using helium, an inert gas, and not water, so avoiding the risk of corrosion.
Work on GT-MHRs began in l993 involving the American company General Atomics (GA), Minatom, the Russian Ministry for Atomic Energy and Russian nuclear manufacturers.
Nicola Ermakov of Minatom indicated that GT-MHRs are regarded as the most efficient option for eliminating plutonium.
