Yesterday, an editorial in the Aiken Standard spotlighted the important work taking place at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina.

“The Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility at SRS is to turn some 34 tons of weapons grade plutonium into a component for fuel rod assemblies that will power nuclear reactors to generate electricity.”

“In addition to working toward a goal of removing the 34 tons of plutonium from the nuclear weapons arsenal, Shaw AREVA MOX (Services LLC) has become a solid corporate citizen, giving back to the communities which provide homes for many of its employees.”

For more information on the progress of construction at the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility─ which just celebrated its two year milestone─ or to find out more on what is MOX fuel and its non-proliferation benefits, check out the website here.

We also recommend you have a look at the rest of the piece, “MOX Facility Taking Shape.”
