To continue the process of global development, the need for powerful, carbon-free energy is greater than ever. That’s why #Orano is focusing all its expertise on the recovery of nuclear materials and the management of nuclear waste to generate safe, low-carbon electricity and deliver an effective response to the energy and environmental challenges of the 21st century.
Our unique and internationally recognized expertise in the nuclear fuel cycle allows us to offer our customers powerful products and solutions tailored to their needs at every stage, from mine through conversion, enrichment, recycling, logistics and engineering to decommissioning and dismantling.
Areva had participated in mining, uranium chemistry and enrichment, nuclear fuel recycling, and development of nuclear facilities. After undergoing restructuring a few years ago, it sold off most of its businesses and was acquired by the French government. The company now focuses solely on three commitments: completing a nuclear reactor project in Finland, closing its remaining renewable energy projects, and producing a nuclear product for external sale.
