In 2012, GLE obtained a combined construction and operating license (COL) from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for an enrichment plant of up to 6 million separative work units (SWU – the unit for enrichment) planned for Wilmington, North Carolina. The Wilmington plant COL approval is the first license granted in the world for a commercial laser enrichment facility.

Domestic enrichment capacity in the US is currently approximately one third of the total US enrichment requirements.  In this light, there remains considerable interest from US utilities in the possibility of a new US-based enrichment supplier as the enrichment market recovers. GLE and Silex will continue to monitor enrichment market conditions as the Wilmington enrichment plant opportunity evolves.
