With its gas centrifugation isotope separation process, using state-of-the-art centrifuges, Orano Stable Isotopes is able to enrich xenon up to 99,99%, for each one of its 9 natural isotopes (124, 126, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 134, 136). Orano offers a reliable, proven and efficient solution for xenon enrichment.
This solution is completed with deconversion services in the chemical form required.
The stable isotopes production uses technologies and know-how developed for uranium over the past 60 years. With its 1900 employees, an R&D center with about 50 experts, and state-of-the-art industrial tools (the Philippe Coste plant for fluorine chemistry, the George Besse II factories using the most advanced centrifugation technology), the Tricastin has naturally been chosen to host Orano’s stable isotopes production, which benefits from all the advantages provided by this industrial platform.
