About Us

As a key player shaping the nuclear industry, with revenues of approximately €4 billion in 2017 and 16,000 employees, Orano is committed to adding more value through nuclear energy in China and worldwide.

Taking China towards greener, safer and more cost-effective energy

Accompanying China's Energy Development

China is experiencing rapid economic and social development as the world's 2nd largest economy by nominal GDP. Like France, China has chosen a closed nuclear fuel cycle policy to satisfy its growing energy needs safely and sustainably. As part of a long-term partnership, Orano puts its deep nuclear fuel cycle expertise at the service of the Chinese nuclear industry to meet the energy challenges generated by this growth.

Adding value across the Nuclear Fuel Cycle

Orano’s cooperation with China and key nuclear industry players is deep-rooted and based on more than 30 years of close collaboration. By drawing on the know-how of a sector expert, China hopes to achieve the ambitious nuclear development goal of ensuring a secure, sustainable and affordable energy supply:

  • Mining / Supply of Uranium
  • Uranium Conversion & Enrichment
  • Used Fuel Recycling
  • Logistics Solutions & Services
  • Nuclear Engineering
  • Dismantling, Decommissioning & Waste Management

Committing to sustainability

Both Orano and China aim is to develop nuclear as a safe, sustainable and cost-effective energy source for today and the future. China is already committed to the environment and low carbon energy alternatives and, in September 2016, ratified the Paris climate agreement. Leveraging high potential of nuclear energy, China has pledged to add 20% non-fossil fuels to its energy mix by 2030.
