The safe transportation of depleted UF6 cylinders and of the depleted uranium conversion products following conversion will be a vital component of the conversion program.
The conversion program will require the shipment of depleted UF6 cylinders to one or both of the conversion plants.
The shipment of radioactive materials may take place by truck, rail, or barge.
The EIS for the conversion project will include a detailed evaluation of the risks associated with the transportation of the depleted uranium materials.
