American Centrifuge Lead Cascade Facility to be decommissioned

The company that operated the American Centrifuge Lead Cascade Facility, Centrus, began the process of decommissioning the facility. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission received a license amendment application and initiated a public review of the decommissioning plan.

The cascade began operations in March 2010 and was shut down in 2015. The American Centrifuge Project, of which this cascade was a part, was terminated in 2016.
