In 2013, URENCO developed its Powerful Facts campaign to show how nuclear power is a low carbon source of electricity and a reliable, cost effective source of energy.
Many different comparisons are made between nuclear and other fuels. Our first Powerful Fact points out the efficiency of a tiny amount of uranium needed to produce as much energy as the equivalent of one tonne of coal. Given the vast resource of uranium that’s available worldwide, it’s a sustainable resource which can be relied upon for generations to come.
Cutting CO2 emissions is imperative for every nation as we seek to protect the planet for future generations. In our third Powerful Fact, we profile just how little CO2 is emitted in the production of nuclear energy. With nuclear energy as part of the energy mix, CO2 emissions can be kept at a responsible level.
Across the world more and more lifestyles have come to depend upon high volumes of energy and governments are rightly concerned about meeting these energy needs from a secure and dependable source. In our fourth Powerful Fact we demonstrate how energy independence can be gained with nuclear as it’s both abundant and low cost.
URENCO is not only committed to the production of clean, reliable and sustainable energy, but also to service excellence for its valued customers worldwide. With its leading centrifuge technology and dedicated workforce, URENCO is able to respond and adapt to the changing requirements of its customers and the wider industry. Our fifth Powerful Fact highlights our strong global reputation, and our continued focus on excellence in customer service.
The racing car is often seen as a symbol of engineering excellence. At URENCO, we view our centrifuges in the same way. Our experience, spanning more than 45 years, has resulted in a reputation as a leader in the global enrichment market. The sixth Powerful Fact was suggested by a URENCO employee, demonstrating our workforce’s enthusiasm and pride in both our business and the nuclear industry.
Our Stable Isotopes business based in the Netherlands, uses our centrifuge technology to produce a variety of other products. In particular, we focus on two specific areas of the medical market – diagnostics and therapy. Using isotopes generated by URENCO, images can be obtained via a gamma camera or a PET scan in nuclear diagnostics. Gamma cameras can accurately detect disease progression and staging in vital organs.
