The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the world’s centre of cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up as the world’s “Atoms for Peace” organization in 1957 within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies.
The IAEA has published its Analysis of Uranium Supply to 2050. The document’s foreword comments “It has been nearly a decade since the IAEA prepared its forecast of uranium supply to 2035. Since the preparation of that study uranium supply has become more complex, and the uranium mining and milling industry has changed dramatically. The importance of the secondary, or non-production, supply has increased, while becoming more diversified. Therefore it was essential that a new analysis be completed to provide the information required for making strategic decisions related to nuclear power and its fuel supply. This study should be useful for government and industry planners, policy and decision makers, and project managers. Potential users include both consumers and producers of nuclear fuel.
