SHINE Technologies is a member of the Wisconsin Technology Council.

Orano and SHINE Technologies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) this week to cooperate in the development of a U.S. pilot plant with commercial-scale technology for recycling used nuclear fuel from light water reactors.

The recovered nuclear material can be made into new fuel for advanced and existing reactor designs along with using certain critical isotopes for medical and industrial purposes.

“This MOU aligns two innovative companies in the single pursuit of recycling 100 metric tons a year of used nuclear fuel into a valuable resource,” said Nicolas Maes, CEO of Orano. “For this initiative with SHINE, we bring more than 55 years of experience transporting and recycling used nuclear fuel in France and managing used fuel in the U.S.”
