GE Hitachi's GLE receives license to build laser enrichment facility

GE Hitachi's Global Laser Enrichment announced Tuesday the receipt of its license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to build a groundbreaking laser enrichment facility in Wilmington.

The license allows GLE to build a first-of-its-kind uranium enrichment facility using lasers. The press release said most of enriched uranium made to produce nuclear fuel in the U.S. comes from foreign or government supplemented sources. This new license will allow the plant to produce up to six million single work units per year.
