Statement: Inflation Reduction Act Makes Critical Investment in HALEU Enrichment


BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Centrus Energy Corp. (NYSE American: LEU) President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel Poneman made the following statement about the nuclear energy related investments in the Inflation Reduction Act signed into law earlier this week:

"The Inflation Reduction Act makes a historic commitment to combating climate change while restoring America's nuclear leadership on the world stage. In addition to providing critical support to our existing fleet of reactors, the new law includes a $700 million appropriation to help jump-start domestic production of High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) ? an advanced fuel that's needed to power the next generation of nuclear reactors.

"Establishing the necessary infrastructure to produce and transport HALEU will take sustained public and private investment over several years.  The $700 million in the new law represents a critical down payment on this effort. 

"In the meantime, with the only U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission license for HALEU production, Centrus is strongly committed to serving this market and helping to fuel the future of nuclear energy around the world so that we can achieve our net-zero climate goals."
