FootPrints for Peace

A little history

The Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, located near Portsmouth, Ohio, began operations in 1954 as part of a U.S. government expansion program for the production of highly enriched uranium to fuel military reactors, nuclear weapons production and for use at the Y-12 plant in Oakridge TN.

In May 2001, USEC ceased uranium enrichment operations at Portsmouth and consolidated operations at the Paducah KY plant.

In January of 2004 USEC announced the selection of Piketon just north of Portsmouth as the expected site for its future American Centrifuge Plant. This commercial uranium enrichment facility is planned to have an annual production level of 3.8 million SWU.
