"Funding Needed" R&D Tasks

  • DUO2 alteration chemistry
    • How DUO2 is altered to other uranium compounds by water with various compositions and cement
    • Keystone for repository uses and heavy concrete
  • High-value fluorine products
    • Other fluorine products (e.g., BF3, fluorocarbons) are worth many times HF
    • Need to develop a flowsheet to produce a mix of these high-value products that will not flood markets
  • Systems analysis
    • Needed to determine costs and benefits to various programs as a basis to establish costs and subsidies
