Abstract

The first part of the book discusses the energy potential of thorium and future prospects. Many researchers believe that thorium is the nuclear energy source that, without CO2 emissions, can fill the energy shortfall caused by the depletion of hydrocarbons in the future. Therefore almost all developed countries in the world are currently working on the creation of thorium-powered generators and increasing its reserves. For a number of reasons, this important global issue has not yet been discussed at the state level in Georgia. Hence, for the first time in Georgia, we tried to explore thorium ore occurrences and evaluate the potential of its resources. The second part of the book discusses the results of this research in detail.
