IAEA LOW-ENRICHED URANIUM BANK BECOMES OPERATIONAL IN KAZAKHSTAN

On 17th October, Nuclear Threat Initiative reported that the IAEA has advised that its new low enriched uranium (LEU) bank is now operational in Kazakhstan.  The LEU Bank will provide countries investing in nuclear power an assured supply of fuel to use for peaceful purposes without incurring the significant costs of building their own enrichment facilities and without adding to global proliferation risks.
