WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today released a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) analyzing potential impacts of the Department’s proposed action to acquire high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU). The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to securing a domestic supply of HALEU, a key material needed for most U.S. advanced reactors to achieve smaller designs, longer operating cycles, and increased efficiencies over current nuclear energy technologies. HALEU is not currently available from domestic suppliers, which could significantly impact the deployment of advanced reactors.
