How Does Uranium Become The Source Of Nuclear Plant? Here’s What You Need To Know

Uranium is very dense element and relatively weak, nonrefactory metal. Its metallic properties appeared to be in between the silver and other true metal and of those metallic elements. The major value of uranium is in the radioactive and fission properties of its isotopes. In nature almost all metals consists uranium-235 and this is only element can directly fissionable by neutron irradiation.

In producing energy from Uranium in a nuclear reactor, it passes in different series of processes to complete the set of nuclear fuel. The complete set process is called front end of the fuel cycle. The processes in the front end are mining and milling, conversion enrichment and fuel fabrication. After producing energy, the fuel become spent fuel and the spent fuel undergone a series of processes in a storage facility being recycled.
