The Very High Temperature Reactor, for instance, is designed for much higher temperatures than past and current gas-cooled reactors
achieve, which would allow them to be used for high-temperature process heat applications--including hydrogen production-as well as for electricity production.

High-temperature gas-cooled reactor
(HTGR) is one of the six candidates of the Generation IV nuclear systems which attract many countries' interests.
Due to its inherent safety feature, the modular high temperature gas-cooled reactor
(MHTGR, such as HTR-Module designed in Germany and MHTGR designed in US) has been seen as one of the best candidates for the next-generation nuclear plants.
The gas-cooled reactor
technology had been developed into a 400MW thermal direct-cycle design by Eskom.
Using nuclear power was mentioned in the third article with reference to the development of the high-temperature gas-cooled reactor
(HTGR) in South Africa.
Modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactor
(HTGR) is a kind of safe and advanced nuclear energy system, which can efficiently provide electric power and high-temperature process-heat.
