The U.S. nuclear defense program has created a large inventory of depleted uranium hexafluoride (UF6), a bi-product of the uranium enrichment process. Some 700,000 metric tons are being stored at three DOE sites.
At Southwest Laboratories, Commodore has proven that the SET process is ideal for the conversion of UF6 to uranium oxide (UO), a stable, recyclable product. The Company's SET process is the simplest – converting UF6 to oxide form in one step. It is also the least expensive of the technologies available.
The market for treatment of UF6 is expected to be over $4 billion – $6 billion over the next 15 years. Commodore is in discussions with major teaming partners for this market.
