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.
BETHESDA, Md. - Centrus Energy Corp. (NYSE American: LEU) is providing an update on construction of the nation’s first production facility for High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) in Piketon, Ohio.
“Despite the impact of the pandemic and the extraordinary steps we have taken to protect our workforce – including limiting the number of people who can be on the construction site at any one time – we have kept construction on track and expect to begin producing HALEU by next year,” said Centrus President and CEO Daniel B. Poneman. “We believe this first-of-a-kind facility can play a critical role in meeting both government and commercial requirements for HALEU, powering America’s nuclear leadership as the world turns to a new generation of advanced reactors and advanced nuclear fuels.”
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.
BETHESDA, Md. — Centrus Energy Corp. (NYSE American: LEU) today announced that the Company’s application to produce High-Assay Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) at its Piketon, Ohio, facility has been accepted by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for formal review. HALEU-based fuels will be required for most of the advanced reactor designs currently under development and may […]
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."
