Clean, sustainable, low in waste, with no carbon emissions,
and plentiful fuel across the earth, nuclear fusion could be
the holy grail of energy that the world desperately needs
today. A first-of-its-kind in India, Project Sanlayan is a
private initiative that aims to deliver a compact volume
neutron source capable of producing medical isotopes,
breeding fission fuel, and burning radioactive waste; in
addition to providing energy from nuclear fusion for
generations to come.
A cleaner, sustainable source of energy that promises
