About Us

Who We Are

At Flibe Energy, we believe in a sustainable, nuclear-powered future. The key to unlocking this future can be found in the tiny thorium atom. Since our founding, our mission has remained the same – create a power source that will revolutionize the way we experience energy. This mantra will always guide our actions as a company. 

Flibe Energy was founded in 2011 by Kirk Sorensen after he had spent over a decade studying and independently exploring the technical basis and design of molten-salt reactors. He conceived of the LFTR in 2006 as a modern incarnation of molten-salt reactor technology that incorporates the best principles of safety, performance, and economic versatility in order to provide a sustainable future for generations to come.

Kirk currently serves as the President and Chief Technologist at Flibe Energy and has grown the company to include a team of engineers, chemists, and nuclear physicists who are working together to bring this revolutionary technology to market. Kirk still remains a public advocate for thorium energy, and frequently speaks at conferences and forums all around the world about the advantages of thorium technology.
