Uranium Milling Refining And Conversion

The mill then concentrates the extracted uranium to produce a material, which is called yellowcake because of its yellowish color. Finally, the yellowcake is transported to a uranium conversion facility, where it is processed through the stages of the nuclear fuel

    Uranium Recovery

    Sep 21, 2020 As the precursor to the nuclear fuel cycle, uranium recovery focuses on extracting (or mining) natural uranium ore from the Earth and concentrating (or milling) that ore. These recovery operations produce a product, called yellowcake , which is then transported to a fuel cycle facility. There, the yellowcake is transformed into fuel for
