Uranium Supply Is Limited PDF Print E-mail

Nuclear reactors mainly use uranium as a fuel.  Known uranium resources can provide about  80 years of fuel for today's reactors at current worldwide levels of use.  Generation IV nuclear reactors under development will use 1/50 as much uranium so current known supplies will last 5,000 years.  The U.S. Department of Energy expects Generation IV reactors to be available for commercial use in 2030.  The U.S. gets only 10% of its uranium from domestic mines, mostly in Wyoming and New Mexico.  U.S. and world uranium supplies will last much longer if we can use other renewable resources as much as possible until the Generation IV nuclear reactors are available.
