Cameco's Role

Cameco has no role in the spent fuel management industry.

Cameco is, of course, supportive of nuclear industry solutions for long-term storage that meet stringent criteria for safety, environmental protection and the acceptance and benefit of host communities. However, we are not a participant in siting processes in any of the countries in which we operate.

One ton of natural uranium can produce more than 40 million kilowatt-hours of electricity. This is equivalent to burning 16,000 tons of coal or 80,000 barrels of oil.
