NRC Backgrounder on Uranium Enrichment

May 13, 2016Nuclear power plants use uranium for fuel. One type of uranium atom uranium-235 (U 235) is easily split to produce energy.U 235 makes up less than 1 percent of natural uranium. To make fuel for reactors, this natural uranium is enriched to increase the U 235 to between 3 and 5 percent.. The fuel cycle begins by mining and milling uranium ore into a powder.

Why is Uranium-235 ideal for nuclear power? HowStuffWorks

The answer is uranium. Nuclear fission occurs when one atom splits into two, creating energy. Spontaneous fission occurs all the time. Uranium undergoes spontaneous fission at a very slow rate, and emits radiation. Uranium-235 (U-235) is only found in about 0.7 percent of uranium found naturally, but it is well-suited for producing nuclear power.

Uranium-238, the most prevalent isotope in uranium ore, has a half-life of about 4.5 billion years; that is, half the atoms in any sample will decay in that amount of time. Uranium-238 decays by alpha emission into thorium-234, which itself decays by beta emission to protactinium-234, which decays by beta emission to uranium-234, and so on.

In 1952, the U Plant was given a new mission which was to recover uranium from the waste generated in the plutonium extraction process. For six years, U Plant crews removed uranium from the chemical separations process waste and then transferred that uranium to a support facility called 224-U/UA (224-U/UA was also called the UO3 or Uranium Trioxide Facility).
