Rising cost of the Uranium Processing Facility in the United States

A recently completed Department of Defense's Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation has suggested that the cost of Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) could be between $10 and $12 billion, and under a worst case scenario that involves funding constraints and technical issues that would stretch out construction of the project, it could cost up to $19 billion. This is significantly higher than the current estimate of $6.5 billion.
