US nuclear industry asks White House to remove Russian uranium from sanctions

91

The American nuclear industry can "lay down" in the event of a cessation of Russian uranium supplies. A number of US companies involved in this industry are trying to put pressure on the White House to get uranium out of sanctions. The American media write about it.


Washington plans to introduce another package of sanctions due to the operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, where uranium supplies may end up. In this case, the nuclear industry, which is heavily dependent on Russian cheap uranium, will suffer the most. The thing is that the United States has not been mining uranium on its own for quite a long time, preferring to buy it, primarily from Russia.

American companies involved in this industry have repeatedly declared their intentions and ability to mine uranium themselves, but none of them have been able to do so. Against this background, the sanctions that are intended to be introduced will hit American nuclear scientists hard, leaving them without raw materials.

According to the press, citing anonymous sources, the companies are now trying to force the White House to withdraw uranium from the imposed restrictions. In particular, the electric power companies of the nuclear industry Duke Energy Corp and Exelon Corp are engaged in this.

The US National Energy Institute (NEI), which unites energy companies in the nuclear industry, said that it was necessary to expand the uranium market, look for new suppliers, etc., but admitted that the industry would not last long without Russian uranium. At the same time, several companies once again expressed their readiness to independently begin the extraction of strategic raw materials.

The HEU-LEU (highly enriched uranium - low enriched uranium) agreement was concluded between the United States and Russia on February 18, 1993. The agreement, and then the signed contract, provide for the irreversible processing of at least 500 tons of Russian weapons-grade uranium into low-enriched uranium for American nuclear power plants.

            Plutonium is obtained by irradiating uranium-238(!) with neutrons.
            But neutrons fly out of U-235 or from the same Pu-239.

        It is not at all clear from the article what this is about. The word "mining" flashes here and there - and it seems that we are talking about raw uranium, metal, or U3O8, or hexafluoride for subsequent enrichment. But at the end, the HEU-LEU agreement is mentioned for the supply of low-enriched uranium. In general, porridge.
        I must say that the American mining industry is very good, there are also deposits. It is not difficult to buy uranium, for example, in Africa or Australia - there it is higher than the roof, unlike Russia. But here's the problem: enrichment technologies in Russia are much better, and most importantly, cheaper than anywhere else. And the gap in this is calculated in years, if not decades. So, apparently, we are talking about enriched uranium. Shut off oxygen to the bastards, let them switch to coal power plants, to the evil of Greta Tumberg. Yes, and titanium, zirconium - our trump cards are no worse than uranium. strategic metals.

          Better and cheaper, yes. In terms of the cost of the SWU (units of separation work), Russia can put anyone in the belt. And America..... After AOK (the American enrichment company) was privatized and subsequently it went bankrupt, America is absent from the uranium enrichment market. From the word at all. Yes, and they had enrichment on "grids" - this is the technology of the middle of the last century ... Now they don't even have that ... So yes ... This is a critical issue for them .... Very. The problem of waste storage is more critical. But that's a completely different story.

            It is high time to stop deliveries of striped uranium for reasons of safety of the operation of Ukrainian nuclear power plants

            After the Russian troops took control of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the Zaporizhzhya nuclear scientists said that they made statements about the state of the nuclear power plant under pressure from their superiors and under threat. And in the near future they will roll out a statement (or official report) providing figures on the number of incidents with Westinghouse fuel assemblies. How many of them accumulated there for the number of fuel sessions (or cycles from replacement to replacement) that was, it's hard to say. But the statistics are going to be VERY distasteful for Westinhouse. VERY. And this is only suspected on the basis of statements by Czech nuclear scientists (yes, yes ... Dukovany) where there was already a sad experience with fuel assemblies of this Westinghouse miracle company. The Czechs abandoned the assemblies out of harm's way .... And the bosses in Ukroreikh .. already felt themselves in chocolate. I hope the situation will change. But at whose expense? TVELs are an expensive pleasure. The freebie for the supply of free fuel from the Russian Federation in exchange for Ukraine's nuclear-free status has already ended. However, like money in ukroreykha ...

          The second place in terms of uranium reserves belongs to Kazakhstan. The Asian country holds 11,81% of the world's fuel reserves, which is equal to 629000 tons of uranium.
          In first place is Australia, 30% of world reserves

    98 reactors in the USA. Enriched uranium market, 22% Kazakhstan and 11% Russia. It's funny, 100% of uranium mining and processing in Kazakhstan is Rosatom. uranium in the United States is degraded, and Hillary had a hand in this. Yes, and Rosatom made a fuss.

    A number of US companies involved in this industry are trying to put pressure on the White House to get uranium out of sanctions. The American media write about it.

    Here's the crap. Sanctions, so sanctions.

    Americans in their repertoire - we play here, we don't play here, here I wrapped fish. At the same time, tough sanctions are required from Europe, and those, as if under the gaze of a boa constrictor, themselves go to the fall of their economy. But that's their problem. Today, Europe has shown in full glory all its "principles" that it defends (in words), its "commitment to respect for human rights" (especially Russian), its terry Russophobia with open hatred. It will be very interesting to hear about our response beyond airspace closures. I hope that the illusions about the possibility of reaching an agreement with the West have finally disappeared.

    By the way, we are talking about enriched uranium for nuclear power plants .. The reason for the lack of technology for this in the United States is a very expensive product, in simple terms, the United States does not have gas centrifuges .. Don’t be fooled .. That's all you need to know about the technological superiority of the West ..
    rs: To get acquainted with the topic to a minimum extent, watch Boris Martsinkevich's series of programs on YouTube ..

      The market has decided. Why is it expensive to develop your own technology if you can buy it cheaply from the Russians.

      In the USA, there have never been centrifuges; there was a gas diffusion enrichment technology that was complex and rather inefficient.

        He writes about this, the Americans sort of undertook to develop new technologies, but they quickly abandoned it, it’s expensive, it’s easier to take ready-made uranium from the Russians.

      Well, do not belittle the power of the United States, they process as much as 7% of all their consumption. Modern nuclear processing technologies are too complicated for them.

    Russia is being blocked from all sides and by all available and illegal methods. But this is their decision. And where is ours, from Russia? Continued supplies of gas, mineral fertilizers, lumber, metal to Europe, uranium to the USA. This is what we see in open sources. What's this? But our liberal-American Nabiullina with her scabs raises the discount rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation by 20% for the speedy increase in prices for EVERYTHING!!! In our rear, officials behave worse than saboteurs, and it will be difficult to explain this to mothers, sisters, those soldiers and officers who destroy the Nazis in Ukraine. Maybe it's time for the Government of the Russian Federation (if it is popular) to declare a moratorium on the speculative economy and corrupt power in Russia for the period of the military operation?

    In response to the sanctions, it is also possible for Russia to impose a ban on the supply of critical materials such as titanium and uranium. It is more profitable not to prohibit the sale, but to sell only in exchange for the sale of the goods of interest to us. Such a kind of hidden barter.

    And the Britons announced the impending confiscation of yachts, the mansions of our oligarchs. "Civilized" Europe

    And we, and we will declare a hunger strike! We will support our bloodsucking oligarchs, we will not allow the adversary to deprive them of their cute trinkets. But seriously, our moneybags robbed Russia, withdrew money over the hill, and now this property will go to mattresses and small Britain? Yes, it's some kind of tent. Who is responsible for this multi-move? Why did the strategists not calculate the actions of the hegemon a couple of steps ahead?
    Why, for our authorities, the work of returning unfairly received benefits is performed not by the Liler Nation administration, but by the Biden administration. But he (Biden) will pour money from the sale of oligarchic toys of our bloodsuckers into the US economy.
    Was it not planned by non-patriots of Russia in advance?

    In this case, the nuclear industry, which is highly dependent on the Russian cheap uranium.

    The word "cheap" resonated very much. When will we stop being a source of "cheap" raw materials for the "rich" West? Uranus; gas; corn; wood, weapons... And what do we buy in the West for cheap? We trade with them for dollars and euros - and what can you buy from them for these paper candy wrappers?...

    HEU-LEU Agreement (highly enriched uranium - low enriched uranium)

    And here HEU-LEU, the program is completed and closed.
    And there will be buyers for Russian uranium, for example, Iran or North Korea will gladly buy it. Who should pump Ukraine with weapons to kill Russian people, who should shoot down Russian planes in Syria, and who should help the rivals of these ... "partners".

    Who cares, but I am personally opposed to considering the issue of the supply of nuclear raw materials separately from the entire complex of sanctions.
