The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is currently focusing on developing advanced nuclear reactors, which are smaller, more efficient, and flexible than traditional reactors. Advanced reactors require next-generation nuclear reactor fuels—uranium enriched up to 20%.
UUSA is poised to provide the essential enrichment services necessary to supply these new reactors with fuel for sustainable energy generation. Producing advanced fuels at UUSA is the most efficient and lowest cost enrichment option in the United States as producing next-generation fuels can be done building on our current activities. By leveraging our existing infrastructure, trained workforce, and Urenco’s 50+ years of operating experience, UUSA can support state and federal energy transition and clean energy goals.
