The Bill mentioned, when enacted, will be in affect for 12 years. I have yet to research the status of the Bill.
Due to the implied, and hopefully soon to be proven, laser enrichment process, it appears that Silex would be well positioned to capitalize on the future "tailings" availability. - If you read the links you would know, (or perhaps you have known) prior to the Bill, the DOE could not disperse the "tailings".
Another reason I raise this subject is due to the long range contracts Energy Companies have. GLE's possession of a proven technology would not necessarily mean a sudden influx of sign-ons by Energy Companies. Apart from the written agreements GLE has, the US Government may well be one of GLE's biggest immediate customers.
I will not, nor have I presumed ShareScene posters haven't already discussed the subject matter I am sharing here. The Silex ShareScene Forum appears to be top notch in my opinion.
I have not joined in the discussion group due to the time frame (16, 17 hour difference).
I'll share my opinion with you on the "spent fuel" problem at a later date. - Needless to say my opinion is based on the implied efficiency of the Silex laser enrichment technology.
Thanks again to you, Moose, and to all the ShareScene posters.
