The Long Road: From Eisenhower's 1953 "Atoms for Peace" to the IAEA Low Enriched Uranium Bank in Kazakhstan — •Tariq Rauf — Vienna

On 8th December 1953, US President Eisenhower in his "Atoms for Peace" speech at the UN called on States to make joint contributions from their stockpiles of natural uranium and fissionable materials to an International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA]"[to] provide special safe conditions under which such a bank of fissionable material" would be allocated to "provide abundant electrical energy in the power-starved areas of the world." A half century later, in 2003, IAEA Director-General ElBaradei called for a new approach to the sensitive parts of the nuclear fuel cycle "uranium enrichment and plutonium separation" that would assure supplies of low enriched uranium (LEU) for civilian uses and preserve States" nuclear fuel cycle options while minimizing the establishment of additional enrichment and reprocessing capabilities. On 29 August 2017, the storage facility for the IAEA LEU Bank was inaugurated at the Ulba Metallurgical Plant in Kazakhstan. This presentation will describe the evolution and development of the IAEA LEU Bank
