Orano partnering with WNA 2023

From September 6 to 8, 2023, the major players in the nuclear industry have been gathering in London, UK, for the World Nuclear Association (WNA) symposium. This annual forum provides a unique opportunity for industry professionals to exchange views and reinforce the role of nuclear power as a key resource for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

New partnership between Orano and Urenco

Coinciding with the WNA symposium, Orano and Urenco have announced the signing of a consortium agreement for the development of the new 30B-X cylinder designed to transport enriched natural uranium.

Nuclear, a key player for a sustainable world

The goals and challenges addressed by the WNA are aligned with the global stakes of meeting vital decarbonization objectives.  Access to affordable, uninterrupted low-carbon energy is one of the greatest challenges facing the world's population today. 

As a leading nuclear energy company, Orano is striving to reduce its carbon footprint throughout its operations, and continues to contribute to the production of lower-carbon electricity. 
The Group is making strong progress towards its ambitious target for 2025: a 50% reduction in its C02 emissions compared with 2015.

Between 2015 and 2022, Orano has already achieved a 46% reduction in C02 emissions.

See the interview with François Lurin, Senior Executive Vice President of the Chemistry-Enrichment Business Unit at Orano. Learn how the Group is responding to the world's growing energy needs, notably by increasing uranium enrichment capacity by almost 30% for production as early as 2028. 

The symposium also provided an opportunity to present the 2023 report on nuclear fuel, with a session featuring Pierre Joly, Vice President of Strategic Uranium Marketing at Orano.
