HALEU is more desirable for use in nuclear power reactor designs because it allows for smaller designs, longer life cores, increased fuel efficiency and less waste.
"The projected demand for HALEU far exceeds the current supply," said HALEU Program Manager
The facility has begun preparations for the pending mission, which will include equipment repair, training, procedure revisions and environmental impact analysis. Support is also being provided by the SRNL to complete a detailed set of sample analyses to ensure the HALEU meets reactor material specifications and to certify the shipping containers for material transport. Down-blending is expected to begin in 2025.
"This approval is a win-win," said Hasty. "
