NEI's Uranium Fuel Seminar

(Conferences) Permanent link

WNA's Ian Emsley participated in the Nuclear Energy Institute’s Uranium Fuel Seminar in Scottsdale, Arizona (24-26 October). An address by Commissioner William Magwood (NRC) provided an opportunity for NEI members to obtain clarification of the NRC policy and approach. The NEI was able to record that nuclear power has largely recovered its overall favourable rating in US public opinion, while a number of presentations pointed to the difficulties and increased costs of mining uranium in the US and elsewhere.
