Treaty of Almelo

The Treaty of Almelo marked the start of a new age in uranium enrichment for civil purposes.

Since the signing of the Treaty, URENCO has fully justified the negotiations and decisions of 1970. Five decades on, the agreement remains the cornerstone of international collaboration on non-proliferation, while URENCO has grown considerably to extend its international relationships to include the US and France.

URENCO has realised the original vision of the Treaty of Almelo, becoming a model of international co-operation ensuring a safe, secure and commercially attractive supply of nuclear fuel for the peaceful production of nuclear power.
