Yes J I too find it an interesting tech that I watch as a passing interest.Very clever stuff.

I must admit Clocker's thoughts also crossed my mind as a possibility.

Hi Henrietta,

Plenty of pundits got this wrong, including yours truly, who took a bath today again on this stock when I finally got fed up after so many years holding and trading and decided enough was enough.

No doubt there will be plenty of theories thrown around, including the one I have about the Americans looking to drive Silex to the point where they end up selling the technology, which will save GLE from paying fat royalties to Silex in perpetuity. This practice is so very typical and unfortunately Australian companies have been on the receiving end more often than not.

GLE cite adverse market conditions for the pull back. Haven't we been in adverse conditions since Fukushima, during which GLE continued to hire staff and spend vast amounts of money to advance the technology. Give me a break, we have been screwed.

Sorry for the rant, but too much of my time and money has gone into this stock over the years (yes, my fault) and I am just feeling a bit washed out and pissed off at the moment.

Cheers

Had a few SLX for a short time many moons ago, and have kept a passing interest in the technology.

Cheers

I've no skin is this game H but that is awful news for holders.The market for enrichment must be quite bad. Some U stocks have putting on a bit of an up move lately. Maybe a bit early?

DOE announced Wednesday that it had selected the GE-Hitachi plan for reuse of the plant site. The plan, submitted by General Electric Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment, would use laser technology to re-enrich high-assay depleted uranium tails.

"Paducah is a proud city, and we are thrilled GE has placed its confidence in the people of Paducah to host this new state-of-the-art facility," the federal delegation Sen. Mitch McConnell, Sen. Rand Paul and Congressman Ed Whitfield wrote in a press release. "Paducah has a bright future ahead, and we are genuinely grateful to be a part of it."

Chad Chancellor, CEO of Paducah Economic Development, said he is excited by the news. He said it took a team effort to make the deal happen. Although it is a giant step forward, Chancellor said this is only the first step.

"We still have to go through contract negotiations, permitting and the building, but it's great news," Chancellor said. "We are committed to making this successful on the local level."

A representative from Gov. Steve Beshear's office said the governor spoke to the U.S. Department of Energy this morning, and he expects good news later in the day. We will have more information on this story as it becomes available.

The UK Govt in a smart move are selling their stake in Urenco. They know it is time to get out before the GLE plant becomes operational. They can see the writing on the wall. 2nd generation technology will be hopelessly outdated and rendered uneconomic by 3rd generation Silex laser Enrichment.

UK to sell stake in Urenco nuclear fuel firm
Urenko is jointly owned by the UK, the Netherlands and two German companies

The UK government is preparing to sell its one-third stake in Urenco, the world's second-largest provider of nuclear fuel.

The uranium enrichment company is estimated to be worth about 10bn euros ($13bn; 8.6bn).

Business and Energy Minister Michael Fallon said the "time is right" for the sale, adding it made "good commercial sense".

Several buyers are said to be interested in buying the stake.

They include French nuclear group Areva, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and reactor builder Westinghouse.

The remainder of Urenco is owned by the government of the Netherlands, as well as by the German power companies E.On and RWE.

"The decision to proceed towards a sale comes after the government secured agreement from its Dutch and German partners," the UK's Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said.

As yet, no decisions have been taken with regards to how or when the sale will happen.

"Any sale will only be concluded if the government is satisfied that the UK's security and non-proliferation interests can be protected and that value for money is achieved for the UK taxpayer," the department said.

As Urenco owns top secret uranium enrichment centrifuge technology, which the authorities are eager to protect from falling into the wrong hands, all three countries would need to approve any sale of a stake.

Nuclear power should be on the table: BCA Date April 17, 2013 - 4:04PM
Nuclear power should be put back on the national agenda, women should occupy 50 per cent of executive positions, and the teaching of Asian language should be compulsory in schools, Australia's peak business body says.

Describing the next six months as "critical" for Australia, the Business Council of Australia - representing the chief executives of Australia's largest companies - has slammed the lack of political focus on "creating jobs, raising living standards and securing long-term prosperity".

"In Australia, it's a choice. A choice that no-one seems intent to be making at the moment," BCA president Tony Shepherd told the National Press Club in Canberra today.

"Australia's current preparation for the future is somewhere between half-hearted and non-existent," he said. "Even though some of these challenges are well and truly upon us, we talk about them as though there's still some time.

Advertisement "We must act now, while we can secure national prosperity through careful and incremental change."

Mr Shepherd listed Australia's natural and intellectual endowments, strong business sector and institutions, social cohesion and social safety net, and proximity to the Asian economic powerhouses as key national assets.

But poor labour productivity, high costs, challenges to competitiveness, flat confidence and a weakening fiscal positioning needed solutions, he said.

"How many major projects have to fail or be deferred ... how many Australian businesses have to shut down ... how many Australians have to lose their jobs ... How many budget deficits are we going to run ... before we take action?" he said.

Speaking ahead of the release of a BCA report identifying nine areas for reform, including tax and regulation, infrastructure, energy, education and foreign investment, Mr Shepherd said Australia should:

  • Deliver consistent budget surpluses;
  • Introduce a hard cap on the size of government;
  • Produce an intergenerational report and green paper on tax that includes discussion of the GST;
  • Ditch COAG and Renewable Energy Targets;
  • Sell further infrastructure assets, including energy assets;
  • Make "practical" and "sensible" changes to the Fair Work Act;
  • Develop a "more nuanced approach" to investment from state-owned enterprises and sovereign wealth funds; and
  • Establish a retail bond market and a liquid institutional credit market.
On the politically contentious issue of energy and global warming, Mr Shepherd said both political parties needed to "accept the lowest cost method of encouraging the reduction of greenhouse emissions". The Coalition has promised to repeal the carbon tax if it wins the election.

He added: "Action of climate change shouldn't put our business competitiveness at a disadvantage by moving ahead of the rest of the world. And there should be no policy restrictions on the type of technology we use to lower emissions. Nuclear, gas and clean coal should all be on the table - not excluded on ideological grounds."

Other BCA aspirations are an increase in unemployment benefits, a "sustainably funded" national disability scheme, an end to long commutes in Sydney and Melbourne, and ensuring a diversified economy, including a "high-tech" manufacturing sector.

The BCA president also called for:

  • Australia to be in the top 5 countries for income per capita;
  • 90 per cent of students to complete year 12 or equivalent;
  • More than 95 per cent of year 9 students meeting literacy and numeracy standards;
  • The introduction of performance-based pay for teachers; and
  • A closing of the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.
The speech coincides with a launch of full-page ads by the council, urging leaders to focus on Australia's prosperity in the long term ''not just the next six months''. The federal election will be on September 14, four months after a budget in which a $10 billion deficit is expected.

Mr Shepherd told reporters that its plan "requires political leaders who are prepared to lose their jobs to get things done."

"The test of reform for us is whether it advances national prosperity over the long term. Not whether it advances the attainment or retention of power," he said.

"And it will unashamedly put business at the centre of maintaining and growing our national prosperity."

The council's members include Mike Smith of ANZ Banking Group, Origin Energy's Grant King

A poster who calls himself Toby10 posted this on HC, I don't think he posts here or hasn't for some time so I will repost it here with credit to him.

I post it because it shows that the Uranium Enrichment Plant/s appear to be going ahead with possibly not one plant but two and maybe more in the future?


It also seems clear to me that they intend to use the laser system for enriching Uranium for more than just reprocessing tails or normal new UF6 which comes from the mines and is then treated to become UF6, I believe that this new advancement they are talking of is for special nuclear fuel from the Advanced Recycling Centre that GE talks about.

Happy days ..
