The Y-12 National Security Complex of the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) filed a request with NRC for an amendment of a license XSNM3622, issued in 2010, to export HEU to Europe. The new request, XSNM3622/01, was submitted on May 30, 2012.
The new request covers two separate amounts of U-235. The first was covered by the original 2010 license - "87.3 kg of U-235 contained in maximum of 93.5 kg of uranium enriched to maximum of 93.35% in the form of broken metal." It is listed as "previously shipped in 10/2010." It was used as driver fuel in the BR2 reactor in Belgium.
The additional amount of HEU - "5.8 kg of U-235 contained in maximum of 6.2 kg of uranium enriched to maximum of 93.35% [maximum enrichment is also listed as 93.2%] in the form of broken metal" - will be shipped to the Institute for Radioelements (IRE) in Belgium. The material will be used to produce targets for medical isotope production in the following reactors: BR2 in Belgium, HFR Petten in the Netherlands, OSIRIS in France, and LVR-15 in Czech Republic.
