The determination covers the Department’s sales or transfers of no more than 2,705 metric tons (MTU) of natural uranium (NU) or NU equivalent in a calendar year.  The proposed transfers include up to 650 MTU per year by the National Nuclear Security Administration in support of highly enriched uranium down blending activities, with the remainder of up to 2,705 MTU per year supporting accelerated cleanup activities by the Office of Environmental Management. These amounts are consistent with the principles and policies set forth in the 2012 Secretarial Determination and the Department’s Excess Uranium Inventory Management Plan released in July 2013.
