The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced an approximately $150 million cost-shared award with American Centrifuge Operating, LLC of Bethesda, Maryland, a subsidiary of Centrus Energy Corp, to demonstrate the nation’s ability to produce high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU)—a crucial material needed to develop and deploy advanced reactors in the United States.
Bethesda, Md. and Chicago – Centrus Energy Corp President and CEO Daniel B. Poneman today congratulated Clean Core Thorium Energy and Texas A&M on successfully fabricating the first sample pellets of a next-generation nuclear fuel called ANEEL (Advanced Nuclear Energy for Enriched Life). Centrus and Clean Core have been working together under a memorandum of understanding signed earlier this year to promote Clean Core’s advanced nuclear fuel, which will combine thorium with High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) produced by Centrus.
Oklo Inc. and Centrus Energy Corp. have signed a non-binding Letter of Intent to cooperate in the deployment of a High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium production facility. HALEU is an advanced fuel material that can be used to fuel both existing and advanced fission power plants. Both companies are committed to working toward establishing domestic HALEU production capabilities to support the commercialization of Oklo’s power plants.
Centrus Energy Corp. announced that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved the Company’s license amendment request to produce High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) at the Piketon, Ohio, enrichment facility. The Piketon plant is now the only U.S. facility licensed to enrich uranium up to 20 percent Uranium-235 (U-235) and expects to begin demonstrating HALEU production early next year.
Terrestrial Energy USA and Centrus Energy Corp. have signed a memorandum of understanding to secure fuel supply for a future fleet of Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) power plants. The two companies will evaluate the logistical, regulatory, and transportation requirements to establish fuel supply for Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) power plants, which use standard-assay low-enriched uranium (LEU).
TerraPower announced today its plans to team with Centrus Energy Corp. to establish commercial-scale, domestic production capabilities for high-assay, low-enriched uranium (HALEU), which will be needed to fuel many next-generation reactor designs including the recently announced Natrium™ Power Storage System designed by TerraPower and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy.
WASHINGTON, D.C. and BETHESDA, Md. — Advanced Reactor Concepts, LLC, and Centrus Energy Corp. (NYSE American: LEU) have signed a letter of intent to cooperate in supporting deployment of U.S. uranium enrichment capacity to produce High Assay, Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU) – an advanced nuclear fuel that could power both existing and next-generation nuclear reactors, […]
BETHESDA, Md. – Centrus Energy Corp. (NYSE American: LEU) welcomed the release of today’s report from the White House Nuclear Fuel Working Group Report, which calls for “immediate action to support domestic uranium miners and restore the viability of the entire front-end of the nuclear fuel cycle” so that we can meet our national security […]
Centrus signed a three-year contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to deploy a cascade of centrifuges to demonstrate production of high-assay, low-enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel for advanced reactors
“This practical, bipartisan legislation would leverage American innovation so that we can lead the way in building and fueling the next generation of advanced reactors here at home and around the world. Reclaiming America’s position as a major supplier of commercial nuclear technologies through the deployment of advanced reactors and fuel would create high-wage, clean energy jobs while supporting our energy security and nonproliferation efforts."
