Nuclear fuel companies Lightbridge Corporation and Centrus Energy have announced a contract to conduct a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study to add a dedicated Lightbridge Pilot Fuel Fabrication Facility (LPFFF) at Centrus’s American Centrifuge Plant in Piketon, Ohio.
Lightbridge chief executive officer Seth Grae and Centrus CEO Daniel Poneman inked the agreement yesterday at the COP28 conference, currently underway in the United Arab Emirates.
The FEED study, according to the joint announcement, will identify infrastructure and licensing requirements as well as the estimated cost and construction schedule for the LPFFF. Centrus’s wholly owned subsidiary, American Centrifuge Operating, will lead the study, which is expected to be completed sometime next year.

Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World
In 2018, ANS set the ambitious goal of ensuring every teacher and student in America has access to fact-based nuclear science and technology resources. Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World™, the K-12 nuclear science and energy curriculum created in partnership with Discovery Education and lead funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy, was a first step in achieving that goal. The program has reached more than 1.6 million students since its launch.
