Approximately 704,000 metric tons of depleted UF6 is stored in about 57,600 steel cylinders at three sites in the U.S.:

  • Paducah, KY
  • Portsmouth, OH
  • Oak Ridge, TN

Depleted UF6 is stored in steel cylinders that hold 9 - 12 metric tons of depleted UF6. The cylinders are stored in large outdoor areas called "cylinder yards."

A program of regular surveillance and maintenance activities assures the safety of continued cylinder storage.
