Russia: Westinghouse Asks EU To Break Dependence On Nuclear Fuel

Westinghouse, the Japan-U.S. atomic group, is urging the European Union to create new competition regulations with the goal of ending European dependence on nuclear fuel from Russia, the Financial Times reported Aug. 21. Russia reportedly covers 36 percent of EU uranium-enriching requirements, and according to Westinghouse several eastern Europe reactors are dependent on custom-made fuel rods from Russia for operation. The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria all depend on Russian atomic fuel, and Finland is a significant consumer of Russian fuel.
