One program at the American Centrifuge Plant converts weapons grade uranium from Soviet Union nuclear warheads into low enriched uranium fuel to generate electricity in commercial nuclear power plants.
In a July 11, 2012 announcement USEC announced that its Megatons to Megawatts program has converted 450 metric tons of former Soviet Union nuclear warheads in the last two decades. By the end of 2013, the Megatons to Megawatts program will have “downblended” the equivalent of 20,000 nuclear warheads into nuclear fuel by the end of 2013. Nuclear fuel represents about 10% of the electricity generated in the U.S. It is the equivalent of 193 billion gallons of gasoline. The U.S. consumes that amount of gasoline about every 17 months.
A new contract has been signed that runs from 2013-2022. These Russian deliveries will come from that country’s uranium enrichment activities, not Russian weapons material.
