Oranges, Orange Juice and Enriching Yellowcake: The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Explained


Gene Clark’s presentation at the recent China Power and Alternative Energy Summit in Beijing drew strong applause. has re-published an excerpt in the current Market Outlook Journal. Clark compares enriching uranium with making orange juice in his easy-to-understand description of the front-end of the nuclear fuel cycle.

Clark wrote in today’s Market Outlook Journal, “The uranium enrichment process is analogous to the process of squeezing oranges to make orange juice. The raw oranges are like the feed to the enrichment process; the orange juice itself is like the product of enrichment; the resulting orange pulp and rind is like the waste stream of the enrichment process.”
