The United States will create a nuclear fuel program to strengthen production
News » Science and Technology
The United States introduced a bipartisan bill requiring the nation's Department of Energy to create a nuclear fuel program to boost domestic production
According to the document, the priority is to increase the production of low-enriched uranium (HALEU) in the US and accelerating efforts to build capacity.
Legislators want to be sure that supply constraints or the absence of Russian uranium will not affect the development and operation of US light water reactors.
“US energy security and independence” is impossible if we continue to rely on Russia and Putin for the uranium we need to power our nuclear reactors. As Russia's war against Ukraine continues into its second year, it's time to take a close look at how we get the raw materials we need to power our country and develop advanced energy technologies. said Senator Joe Manchin, chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
