  1. Rod,

    Please tell me I did not just hear (@64 minutes) you suggest that Bruce Power used enriched uranium for its current reactors. Not even 1.5%. The Bruce reactors are standard CANDUs that operate using natural uranium, no enrichment required. What you might have been thinking of was the proposed ACR-1000, which I understand will use 1.3 or 1.5% slightly enriched uranium.

  2. Brad:

    Oops – you caught me and outed me. You are correct, the existing CANDUs run on natural uranium and I was confusing them with the ACR designs that I have studied a bit.

    Sorry it took so long to approve the comment, I temporarily forgot the admin password.
