There has been a lot of press speculation about the future of URENCO over the last six months.
Some of this speculation concerns the sale of the company, while much of it is far more worrying.
Here is a quick summary of it all.
Urenco has just published its financial report for 2014.
This report has just appeared on their website.
Selling the Company.
There has also been a lot of press speculation during the last half year about the possible sale of URENCO
See for example: –

While over at the Capenhurst plant it was announced that:-
It was also headlined in the Liverpool Echo that:-
Urenco’s Tails Management Facility in Capenhurst near Chester will not become operational until 2017
This will mean that all the drums of depleted Uranium in the form of Uranium Hexafluoride will be left around the plants for a much longer time. This is despite the assurances of URENCO that the new plant to safely deal with this waste would be up and running this year.
