In recognition of service provided to the Depleted Uranium Hexaflouride (DUF6) Tails Re-Enrichment Project at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Paducah, Kentucky, during FY12. The teamâs efforts to develop and gain approval for a plan to continue enrichment operations at USECâs Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant led to utilization of a portion of the Departmentâs depleted uranium inventory in a way that brings together the public and private sector to advance Americaâs national security interests at a reduced cost to taxpayers. This is the only enrichment facility operating domestically that uses U.S. origin technology and meets the treaty obligations for the U.S. nuclear deterrent.
