BNFL to quit hexafluroide production

22 February 2001

Meanwhile, BNFL has sold its uncommitted conversion capacity to Cameco, which will take over all of its marketing of UF6.

Due to the depressed market, the plant has run at about 5000t/yr over the last two years. This leaves four major converters in the market: Cameco, Converdyn, Comurhex, and Russia's Electrol, with a combined capacity of about 63,000tU/yr.
