Funding
Investment and crowdfunding round

On September 23, 2019 Moltex Energy completed an investment round with £6 in funding from undisclosed investors and crowdfunding from approximately 170 investors through the Shadow Foundr platform. The business development director of Moltex Energy, Simon Newton, made the following statement regarding the company's funding:

Moltex is pioneering a different form of nuclear power generation; it’s fission, but not as the world knows it. Our plants are inherently safe, very cheap and will use up the stockpiles of nuclear waste generated by the current industry. We’re delighted to have so many new investors supporting our mission both to tackle climate change and reduce energy prices.
