High-Value Fluorine Compounds

Baseline plans call for production of anhydrous or aqueous Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) from the DU hexafluoride conversion plant and subsequent recycle of these chemicals to industrial processes. These fluorine products are low-value commodity chemicals. This task will evaluate the chemistry and economics of producing a suite of higher-value fluorine compounds that may offer greater cost savings to DOE.
