Лазер и хвосты

ATOMINFO.RU, ОПУБЛИКОВАНО 17.11.2016Министерство энергетики США заключило соглашение с компанией GLE [Global Laser Enrichment, продвигающей технологию лазерного обогащения урана - tnenergy] на дообогащение приблизительно 300 тысяч тонн обеднённого урана, в то время как крупнейший акционер по-прежнему намерен выйти из состава владельцев компании.Такими красивыми картинками Silex иллюстрирует свою технологию. Интересно, картинка имеет отношение к реальности?300 тысяч тонн хвостовО соглашении, заключённом после почти трёх лет эксклюзивных переговоров, на данный момент известно следующее.Министерство ежегодно будет поставлять в течение 40 лет партии обеднённого урана, объём которых составит в пересчёте на природный уран 2000 тонн. Компания в ответ будет поставлять министерству гексафторид урана природного обогащения. В дальнейшем министерство продаст его по рыночным ценам.Коммерческие условия сделки стороны не разглашают, но, по некоторой информации, GLE будет передавать природный уран министерству по цене не менее 5 миллионов долларов в год (сведения могут оказаться неточными). Всего за 40 лет, как ожидается, компания должна поставить порядка 100 тысяч тонн природного урана, а оставшиеся 200 тысяч тонн хвостов должны быть возвращены министерству. Известно также, что у большей части передаваемого компании обеднённого урана содержание 235U составляет от 0,2% до 0.4%.[Интересно прикинуть, что если в 300 тысячах тоннах урана содержится в среднем 0,3% U235 - т.е. 900 тонн 235 изотопа, а выдать надо 100 тысяч тонн с содержанием 0,71%, т.е. 710 тонн, то в отвал пойдет 200 тысяч тонн урана с 200 тоннами U235, т.е. концентрацией меньше 0,1% - весьма неплохой результат - tnenergy]Предполагается, что GLE должна дообогащать отвальный уран на лазерном разделительном заводе, который компания собирается построить в Падуке. В то же время, пока непонятно, что последует, если завод не будет построен или не будет функционировать как ожидалось. В министерстве комментируют более чем скупо - мы продаём им материал, а они решают, что они хотят с ним сделать.А вот фотография реальной лабораторной установки лазерного обогащения урана по технологии ALVIS в LLNL. Эта технология в свое время "не пошла"Судьба компанииКомпания GLE принадлежит трём известным компаниям - "General Electric" (51%), "Hitachi" (25%) и "Cameco" (24%).Две первых из них в апреле 2016 года анонсировали планы отказаться от дальнейшего участия в проекте и продать свои акции. По предварительной информации, достигнутое соглашение с министерством пока никак не сказалось на настроениях GE и "Hitachi". Дело, в частности, и в том, что соглашение никак не решает одну из основных проблем - компании GLE требуется изыскать примерно 1 миллиард долларов для того, чтобы построить лазерный завод PLEF (Paducah Laser Enrichment Facility). [а 100 тысяч тонн природного урана сегодня стоят ~6 миллиардов долларов - tnenergy]В комментарии от GEH - совместного предприятия GE и "Hitachi", которому принадлежат совокупные акции GLE обеих компаний - говорится предельно ясно: "GEH продолжает работать с "Cameco", "Silex" и другими потенциальными инвесторами над реструктуризацией деятельности GLE"."Silex Systems" - австралийская компания, передавшая в GLE права на технологию лазерного обогащения урана. В этом году австралийцы достигли с GEH соглашения о передаче им эксклюзивных прав на выкуп её доли в GLE (76%). Австралийцы утверждают, что у них есть потенциальные инвесторы, способные перекупить в дальнейшем долю GEH, и что весь процесс реструктуризации может закончиться до конца года. В то же время, на одном из семинаров в октябре во Флориде представители "Silex" честно признались - на кону стоит вопрос о выживании их компании и дальнейшей судьбе лазерного обогащения.Лазерный завод PLEF должен быть построен в начале 20-ых годов, считают в "Silex". Соответственно, до этого срока компании GLE нужно найти 1 миллиард долларов. Не исключено, что поддержка может прийти со стороны новой администрации США - в GLE надеются получить от неё для своего завода госгарантии. Австралийцы позиционируют проект PLEF не как разделительный завод, а как урановый рудник. Что, в общем-то, вполне логично, так как в Падуке предполагается производить не обогащённый, а природный уран.Но попытка сдвинуться в соседний сектор головы топливного цикла, из обогащения в добычу, встречается в отрасли с большим скептицизмом. В успех проекта мало кто верит. Против него играют низкие цены на уран и технологические риски, связанные с внедрением новой технологии.==Небольшой ликбез про лазерное обогащение урана. В целом это пучок технологий основанный на селективном возбуждении атомов U235 (только этого изотопа) точно настроенным лазером с последующей селекцией каким-либо методом. Активно исследовалась в 70х...90х с опробованием массы вариантов как методов сепарации, так и мишеней для возбуждения (атомы, молекулы, химические комплексы и т.п.). В чистом виде эта технология не оправдана экономически - производительность невысока, ресурс лазеров низок, короче дорого. Считается (подробности засекречены), что Silex предложили технологию индуцированных реакций - некое химическое соединение урана под воздействием лазера активируется и реагирует с другим веществом, после чего химическими методами уводится из среды. Однако за много лет проект так и не вышел за рамки обещаний.

Bill Gates And Other Billionaires Backing A Nuclear Renaissance

Submitted by James Stafford via OilPrice.com, Let’s for a second imagine a world without nuclear energy. That’s a tough one but let’s try. No nuclear bombs, of course, no Chernobyl and Fukushima, no worries about Iran and North Korea. A wonderful world, maybe? Probably not, because without nuclear energy we would have burned millions more tons of coal and billions more barrels of oil. This would have brought about climate change of such proportions that what we have today would have seemed negligible. Nuclear energy and uranium, which feeds it, are controversial enough even without any actual accident happening. Radioactivity is dangerous. Nobody is arguing against it. When an accident does take place, the public backlash is understandably huge. What many opponents of uranium forget to mention, however, are the benefits of nuclear energy and the fact that the statistical probability of serious accidents is pretty low. They focus on the “What if?” and neglect the other side of the coin. But let’s try to see both sides of the issue. The positive side of nuclear energy definitely deserves more attention than it’s currently getting. Uranium-fueled power is obscenely greener than fossil fuels. It’s also cheaper and, perhaps surprisingly for many, it is actually lower in carbon emissions than solar and biomass. This means that the construction of a nuclear plant, including materials used and the work itself plus the operation of the plant over its lifecycle, produces fewer greenhouse gases than the construction and operation of a solar farm. What’s perhaps more important is that nuclear energy is much more easily scalable than other low or zero-carbon energy sources. And that isn’t just some claim from the nuclear industry – that’s something climate scientists and environmentalists are saying. Here’s a public appeal by several such scientists, urging greater support for nuclear energy, noting that “While it may be theoretically possible to stabilize the climate without nuclear power, in the real world there is no credible path to climate stabilization that does not include a substantial role for nuclear power.” The uranium mining industry is certainly aware of these attitudes and it’s also aware of a global trend: countries are building new nuclear plants and upgrading existing ones. Forget about Germany and its plans to go nuclear-free – plans that will cost it tens of billions, by the way. None other than Sweden--the poster child of renewable energy, the country that vowed to become the first fossil-free state in the world--is not only choosing to maintain its nuclear fleet; it is updating them. China is building 20 new reactors, South Korea is working on four; and even Japan is restarting some of the capacity shut down after the Fukushima disaster and building new reactors. The growth of nuclear power around the world will cause demand for uranium to surge, and uranium prices are set to double over the next two years. “Reality is finally trumping negative sentiment,” says Paul D. Gray, CEO of uranium and lithium miner Zadar Ventures Ltd. “And the reality is that we can’t wean ourselves off fossil fuels without nuclear power.” Uranium will be needed in prodigious volumes to power up new nuclear reactors, and much of it will come from the Athabasca Basin in Canada. This area, rich in high-grade uranium, is being targeted by both public giants like Cameco (TSX:COO) and Areva (EPA:AREVA) and smaller miners such as Zadar Ventures, CanAlaska Uranium and Mega Uranium. Yet what about those notorious safety risks? Nuclear energy may be green, but it is also more dangerous than, say, wind energy. Again, nobody in nuclear power is contesting that. What they are doing instead is working on new, safer reactors. Welcome to the next generation—reactors that are much safer than their predecessors. But they will still need uranium. The U.S. government recently announced an $82-million funding program for next-generation nuclear reactor development. The UK is even more generous, pledging last year £250 million over five years for research and development in the nuclear energy field. Private investors such as Bill Gates, D. E. Shaw, and Chinese billionaire Li Kashing have been pouring money in such research – and uranium mining – for years now. The nuclear reactors of tomorrow will not only be safer than the ones we already have – which are themselves safer than many believe – they will be much more efficient. Bill Gates’ TerraPower, for instance, has designed a traveling wave reactor, which utilizes nuclear waste. Another design, by two MIT researchers, again uses waste, mixed into molten salt. In short, the nuclear reactors of the future will utilize not just regular uranium but will take care of the waste as well – the same waste that raises so much concern among environmentalists and the general public. So it’s the Athabasca Basin that will be ground zero in the nuclear energy rebound. Some even call the Athabasca Basin the “Persian Gulf of uranium”. It not only contains some of the highest-grade uranium in the world, it is also home to two of the top seven deposits in terms of metal content. The basin has a well developed power, transport and processing infrastructure, too, which makes it all the more attractive for miners and mining investors. Athabasca will be one of the places to watch in the coming years as the uranium market swings from a glut into a deficit. The glut was caused by the sharp drop in demand following the Fukushima events in 2011. Now the pendulum is moving back, with a deficit in the making as uranium miners curbed exploration and production due to falling prices. Back in 2012, Bill Gates noted that “When you have fission, you have a million times more energy than when you burn hydrocarbons. That's a nice advantage to have.” Today, it’s getting increasingly clear that it’s more than “nice”. Nuclear power is unique among zero-carbon energy sources: its production is consistent as it doesn’t depend on sunlight or wind. This, coupled with affordability and safety – whatever environmental extremists say – makes nuclear energy an indispensable element of the global renewable energy mix for the future. It also suggests uranium is more than likely to take the center stage it deserves as fossil fuels relinquish the spotlight. The Athabasca basin will be in the undeniable spotlight sooner than you might think in what will be a boon for major Northern American operators as well as juniors, such as Zadar Ventures. “It’s impossible to find another natural resource that is so fundamentally necessary to our future,” says Zadar’s Gray. “This will be the year of the uranium rebound, and nuclear energy’s next-generation safeguards will rewrite the global energy map once again.”

Uranium Prices Set To Double By 2018

With prices set to double by 2018, we've seen the bottom of the uranium market, and the negative sentiment that has followed this resource around despite strong fundamentals, is starting to change. Billionaire investors sense it, and they're always the first to anticipate change and take advantage of the rally before it becomes a reality. The turning point is where all the money is made, and there are plenty of indications that the uranium recovery is already underway. It's been a very tough few years for uranium. But it now looks like we've reached the bottom, and the future demand equation says there's nowhere to go but up--significantly up. Uranium analyst David Talbot of Dundee Capital Markets is forecasting 6 percent compound annual demand growth through 2020, which is enough, he says, to "kick-start" uranium prices up to and beyond 2007 levels. Morningstar analyst David Wang predicts prices will double within the next two years. Mining Weekly expects "the period from 2017-2020 to be a landmark period for the nuclear sector and uranium stocks, as the global operating nuclear reactor fleet expands." "It's impossible to find another natural resource that is so fundamentally necessary and yet has carried such negative sentiment as uranium. The market has been skewed by negative sentiments that ignore the supply and demand fundamentals," says Paul D. Gray, President and CEO of Zadar Ventures Ltd., a North American uranium and lithium explorer. But the toxicity levels have dissipated, and nuclear energy is rebounding as a cleaner power source with next generation safeguards. The fundamentals are again ruling the day, and this will be the key year for uranium," Gray told Oilprice.com. Why Sentiment is Changing: Born in Chernobyl, Raised in Japan The negative sentiment on uranium was largely made in Japan. The 2011 disaster at Fukushima created an irrational disconnect between sentiment and uranium fundamentals. Now that enough time has passed since Fukushima, this negative sentiment is losing steam as it appears that Japan has succeeded in bringing some of its reactors back online - four of its reactors have already restarted operations. So the world is refocusing on what are arguably brilliant fundamentals, which actually have been there all along. First and foremost, the world is building more nuclear reactors right now than ever before, despite Fukushima. A total of 65 new reactors are already going up, another 165 are planned and yet another 331 proposed. Powering all of these developments will require an impressive amount of uranium. Right now, existing nuclear reactors use 174 million pounds of uranium every year. That will increase by a dramatic one-fifth with the new reactors under construction. But in the meantime, uranium producers have reduced output due to market prices and put caps on expansion. As a result, supplies are dwindling. Currently, the world is increasingly recognizing nuclear energy as the cheaper, cleaner, and greener option--as indicated by the number of reactors being built. As the specter of nuclear accidents wanes in the aftermath of Fukushima and climate change fears move to the top of the chain, uranium is set for a global sentiment transformation. As Scientific American opines, "Nuclear energy's clean bona fides may be its saving grace in a wobbling global energy market that is trying to balance climate change ambitions, skittish economies and low prices for oil and natural gas." According to Bloomberg, in Asia alone, approximately $800 billion in new reactors are being developed. Related: After 350,000 Layoffs Oil Companies Now Face Worker Shortages The market hasn't quite caught on yet to what this massive nuclear development means for uranium because it's still stuck in the Fukushima sentiment--but the cracks are showing and it's about to break free. At the same time, the uranium industry is not producing the uranium needed to feed the hundreds of new reactors slated to come online. Not even close. The uranium is not being produced because producers can't turn a profit at today's spot prices. The minute the market catches on to the massive amount of reactors coming online combined with the pending uranium supply shortage, uranium will experience a price surge like no other commodity before it. Up to 20 percent of the uranium supply needed to operate the world's existing 437 nuclear reactors for the rest of this year and next is not covered, according to uranium market analyst David Talbot. The market has recognized the pending lithium boom, for instance, as heralded by the electric vehicle (EV), battery storage and powerwall push. But the market is sleeping when it comes to uranium, which has even more obviously bullish fundamentals. That's why when this sleeping giant awakens suddenly with the start-up of new reactors around the world, it will be with a roar that rewards those savvy enough to sneak around the irrational sentiment. Determining when the break-out will come, exactly, is part and parcel of playing this rally with an eye to massive returns (for which you can thank the negative sentiment if you're already onto uranium). But all bets are that this year we'll see the first new reactors come online, and then it will snowball from there, transforming from a buyers' market into a sellers' market. The Billionaires' Sixth Sense Billionaire investors are lining up behind uranium with major acquisitions, betting that they are on the edge of a price break-out. Earlier in June, Hong Kong billionaire investor Li Kashing, though his CK Hutchinson Holdings and CEF holdings, said he would buy $60 million in convertible bonds from NexGen Energy targeting uranium projects in Canada's Saskatchewan province. "The current spot prices seem low, but the fundamentals indicate there's going to be a very large demand and supply gap -- that's what you're making a call on," NexGen CEO Leigh Curyer said of the deal. NexGen is slated to start production in the 2020s. Mr. Li's $60-million bet on Saskatchewan uranium is near another uranium company, Zadar Ventures Ltd, which has four projects in Saskatchewan and one in Alberta, and stands to benefit from the high-dollar renewed focus on this resource. The Athabasca Basin is elephant country in terms of uranium deposits. It represents the world's highest-grade uranium deposits and is the home to all of the major uranium producers, developers and explorers. If your going to look for the world's next uranium mine, the Athabasca Basin is the place to do so. Considering that nearly half of the U.S.' 57 million pounds of uranium imports last year came from Canada and Kazakhstan, with Canada providing 17 million pounds--these producers are extremely well-positioned for what comes next. Talbot predicts that the Uranium pound price could reach $65 within two years, and notes that some mines will be extremely profitable at this price--particularly those in the Athabasca Basin and in the western and southwestern U.S., while development of uranium deposits in Africa will require higher prices. The Athabasca Basin is precisely where Zadar and NexGen operate, along with other promising contenders, including Cameco Corp. (TSX:CCO) and Denison Mines Corp. (DML:TSX). Last month, billionaire D.E. Shaw let us all know that he'd acquired 1.4 million shares in Cameco, eyeing rising uranium prices, tightening supplies and growing demand--and joining the ranks alongside George Soros. And others have lined up, too, including well-known money managers Ken Griffin, Ray Dalio and Steve Cohen. Then we have Bill Gates--who has jumped on the uranium bandwagon with great determination. Through his TerraPower company, Gates is developing a Fourth Generation nuclear reactor that would run on depleted uranium, rather than enriched uranium. Increasingly, this is shaping up to be the the Year of Uranium, but while the market sleeps, big investors don't: They'll be all set when uranium experiences a violent upswing, and those operating around the Athabasca Basin are likely to be among the first to benefit from the upward price trend and shrinking supply.

Is Kazakhstan About To Nationalize More Uranium Assets?

I wrote in March about world’s top uranium nation, Kazakhstan, making thinly-veiled threats against uranium miners. And this past week, we may have seen the first moves on this front. On Friday, the world’s top public uranium producer, Cameco, announced that it is restructuring its mining operations in Kazakhstan. With some major changes coming for the firm’s operations here. The biggest shift is a reduction in Cameco’s ownership of the Inkai project — a joint venture between the Canadian firm and Kazakh state uranium…
