Features & Benefits

GEH plans to deploy a commercial enrichment facility in the near future, with an increase of approximately one million SWU per year thereafter. The initial commercial cascade would then be expanded in modules to a larger commercial facility, with an expected capacity of 3.5 to 6 million SWU per year.

Third-Generation Enrichment Technology - Uranium hexafluoride is vaporized into a gaseous form and exposed to a laser beam that preferentially excites the 235-UF6 isotope, which enables separation of natural uranium into enriched and depleted uranium. The process operation, while technically complex, is potentially more efficient than existing second-generation centrifuge enrichment technology.
