MCFR Elysium Industries

I was wondering how Cl35 would affect a Molten Chloride Fast Reactor like EI's. Cl37 makes up 24% of the molar mass of chlorine. Is Elysium Industries going to enrich the fraction of Cl37 or is that necessary despite stable sulfur-36 accumulation (Cl35+n=S36)? Is the issue simply corrosion from sulfur?

Your question is not easy to understand without context. Please post some links to your sources and explain the context better.
 
Their website is a bit vague but a member of their company did go to throcon

Well, 90 seconds of Google searching found this.

It sounds like they plan to skip the Cl37 enrichment. It also sounds like their motivation for enrichment would be higher conversion/breeding.

Enriched Cl37 is unavailable or too costly
Develop supply chain, in discussions with Urenco and Centrus Energy, do not enrich chlorine and use larger core, accept lower conversion/breeding
 
That is a great resource, THX.I don't know how I couldn't find that pdf.
