The Product coming out of Paducah from the tails, will already be at UF6, but Centrus don't enrich Uranium themselves as far as I know? They pay the Russians to do that, I don't think that will sit well with the powers to be in the US and I don't reckon ACP will be a goer? simply because of costs, who's going to pay for a plant like that?
Centrus certainly don't have the money.
And what makes you the genius DER.
GK said he was going to the non oncology area when he left, Novogen has a stable full of IP related to non oncology stuff, that already have links to the Feinstein institute. the Cancer stuff will be fine.
You are a total hyporcrite, you post BS on hotcopper all of the time, don't try and tell me where to get off you dimwit.
Obviously there is something afoot, what does Centrus have that would be of any value to Converdyn?
There is only one thing that Centrus may have that may be of value to Converdyn going forward, it all has in my opinion links to what is happening at Global Laser Enrichment, they are working on recycling used nuclear fuel, GEH has indicated that it wants to reduce it's holding in GLE, I believe it is Hitachi that wants out to concentrate on it's core business PRISM, don't be suprised if they (GEH) get the UK contarct for PRISM to get rid of the Plutonium stockpile, anyway back to Converdyn, I reckon they will pick up part of what Hitachi may be putting up for sale, Converdyn has far better synergies to GLE than Hitachi ever had, I believe what Converdyn are after is the license agreements for the supply of nuclear fuel, that is, it wont be Russia supplying fuel for LWR's, it will be GNF using GLE recycled UNF in the future, it won't be for a while but it is happening behind the scenes.
The info below is just one reference to unf recycling, there are many others that are much later but this gives you an idea of how long it has been going on for,

Midostaurin the First Targeted Therapy to Improve Survival in AML: Potentially Practice-Changing
VBCC - February 2016, Vol 7, No 1 - Emerging Therapies
The multikinase inhibitor midostaurin is the first targeted therapy to improve overall survival (OS) in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and the FLT3 mutation. Midostaurin plus standard chemotherapy improved survival compared with placebo plus chemotherapy as an upfront treatment for high-risk patients with AML and FLT3 mutations.
Patients and physicians have waited for new drugs for AML since the 1990s, so the results of the CALGB 10603/RATIFY trial were greeted with enthusiasm at ASH 2015. The study was an undertaking of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
It can't come fast enough, I was watching something on TV yesterday here in Oz, where the court has ruled that a six year old boy be given radiation and chemo to save his life, his parents didn't want that, they didn't want to see thier son suffer the horrific side effects from chemo and radiation treatment.
It must be hard for adults to suffer these side effects let alone kids.
The PRISM reactor is a sodium cooled non pressurised reactor, it will be used first in a process to help get rid of around 80% of used nuclear nuclear fuel, it will run on Plutonium for the first part until the UNF has all been treated and then maybe it will run on Thorium?
The recovered Uranium will be re-enriched using laser technology and the re-enriched fuel will be used in existing BWR's and PWR's. until the reach their useful lifespan.
Maybe you hit the nail on the head, maybe it is those contracts that are worth the money to another enriched Uranium supplier, one with a far better technology perhaps?
Buy at your own peril, recycling of used nuclear fuel is coming soon.
Have a real good look at what GE are doing?
Look at what the NEI and the NRC have been doing?
It's all there if you look hard enough.

"GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy to enter market for pressurized water reactor services
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, which sells and provides services to boiling water reactors, will for the first time enter the market to provide refueling services to owners of pressurized water reactors made by competitors, the company said Monday.
Work that out for yourselves what that will mean the the enriched Uranium market a bit further down the track?
Search for this.

ADVANCING TECHNOLOGY FOR NUCLEAR FUEL
RECYCLING: WHAT SHOULD OUR RESEARCH,
DEVELOPMENT, AND DEMONSTRATION
Tell me it isn't happening considering what GE have been doing lately?
I just know that you will ask why any competitor of GE's would even want them to load new fuel rods into their own reactor?
I believe the answer is that they will have to under contract, that's "IF" they want their used nuclear fuel taken away to be treated, it will be a condition of the contract that they accept back the treated Uranium.
The Silex process is ideal for this re enrichment as it can be done in camera (that means "in a closed room")
I believe the prototypes that the DoE were working on with the Silex process were related to shielding not the actual SILEX process itself, because as far as I know the SILEX process was perfected 80% at USEC and then taken back to Lucas Heights in Australia and taken to 100% proven after USEC pulled the pin?
The work going on at Wilmington is about treating the recycled Uranium from the used nuclear fuel in my opinion and the shielding component of that process is now at Wilmington also.
Have a look at what GE are saying in their GE in the news, ask yourself why they have developed a robot that looks inside a reactor vessel to look for problems, see here-: GE's robotic inspector dives in nuclear containment vessels.
Normally when workers at the Edwin Irby Hatch Power Plant in Georgia want to inspect welds on the water-filled containment tank that houses the plant's nuclear fuel, they have stick pole-mounted inspection cameras in there while potentially exposing themselves to radiation. But now that the plant has acquired a swimming inspection-bot developed by GE and Hitachi, plant workers can check the vessel's integrity at any time while avoiding all that radiation.
Or why they have developed a Pipe surveying solution
Nuclear Engineering International
Nuclear plants have several types of buried pipes: safety-related system piping; non-safety-related piping that "carries radioactive fluid"; and non-safety-related piping that carries environmentally hazardous fluids such as diesel fuel oil.
Or why they developed this "GE Hitachi Nuclear reveals tool for nuclear power uncoupling"
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Exelon Generation introduced a remotely-operated tool that allows workers to complete tasks at the bottom of nuclear reactors.
And ask yourself this very interesting question-: Which companies would want GE to be renewing their fuel rods in their reactors, why in the hell would they do that, why wouldn't they do that themselves.
I believe the answer is that they won't be able to simply because the nuclear fuel that will be added to the reactor will be much more radioactive, I believe it will require specially trained people and special equipment, I believe GE will be recycling used nuclear fuel, they will burn the plutonium in a PRISM reactor and they will re enrich the recycled Uranium to a higher degree to overcome the neutron absorbers (actinides) in the recovered Uranium.
There is more coming in my next post.
IAEA Nuclear Technology Review 2015
Date: 2 July 2015 Report by the Director General
In response to requests by Member States, the Secretariat produces a comprehensive Nuclear Technology Review each year.
Attached is this year’s report, which highlights notable developments in 2014.
• The Nuclear Technology Review 2015 covers the following select areas: power applications, atomic and nuclear data, accelerator and research reactor applications, nuclear techniques to improve animal health, medical radiation dosimetry, radiopharmaceuticals, isotopes in climate and hydrological studies, and understanding changes in the marine environment using nuclear
46. URENCO USA is the only operating uranium enrichment plant in the country. Three additional enrichment plants are planned. AREVA is planning to build a 3.3 million SWUs centrifuge plant at Eagle Rock in Idaho.
Global Laser Enrichment is planning a 6 million SWUs laser enrichment plant in Wilmington, North Carolina. Both plants are anticipated to start operations before 2020.
So it would seem as if GLE will have two new plants by 2020 one at Paducah for recovering natural grade Uranium and one at Wilmington to enrich Uranium, but I believe the enrichment will be for RepU and the tails Uranium will be added to that, if you look at the GE website and look for GE in the news, just about every thing in there seems to indicate that the new fuels going forward will be much more radioactive and will require specialized training of personnel and also some new specialized equipment for handling and inspection of reactors going forward.
GE are even offering their services to refuel competitors reactors, it begs the question who in the hell would want that,
Answer any company that wants their used nuclear fuel taken away, thats who and it will be in my opinion one of the conditions that they also agree to take back the recovered Uranium (RepU) back as new fuel for their reactors, but it will be much more radioactive.
So the Uranium that they recover from the Tails at Paducah looks like heading to Wilmington, but I reckon it will be used to top up the recovered Uranium (RepU) from used nuclear fuel somehow? go to the GE website and look at GE in the news, look at where GE have been spending their money, they are spending it on things that point to the fact that the fuels they will be using to reload LEU BWR's in the future will be much more radioactive and therefore will required specialized training and specialized equipment to do reactor inspection etc. they have also started to offer other companies the use of GE personnel to reload their reactors with new fuel, why in the hell would any other company want that? The answer I believe will be related to a contract to take their used nuclear fuel from their sites in exchange for a payment and a guarantee that they will take back the recovered Uranium as fuel for their reactors, like I said read the latest GE in the News, most of the things in their point towards a more radioactive fuel for LEU BWR's in the future in my opinion
I have been saying for some time that Novogen will not just sit on some of it's IP simply because they do not have the funds to explore them further, it is a well known fact that the sooner you can justify your IP and get it to market the more money it will make, I saw your previous post Brian about Novogen to announce potential treatment for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy, it is my firm belief that Novogen will partner with another company, one with deep pockets that can take this further, the market for these degenerative and regenerative diseases will be HUGE so sharing the profits between two companies will not be a problem, they will have both SBP and ATM molecules to work with and they are showing some really decent results thus far is what I read.
In an email, the Department of Energy said while they are interested in “preserving and advancing” the Piketon technology “for possible future deployment for a national security mission,” it will focus its efforts on activities at another nuclear site in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
Notice where it said that the DoE will focus it's activities at ANOTHER site in Oak Ridge, anybody here think that it may be LIS technology they are looking at? and that it has something to do with used nuclear fuels and the recovery of Uranium and Plutonium from it? not saying it is Silex, because there is another player in the LIS area now and it would be one that doesn't have the restrictions of using the tech for only peaceful purposes.
Just posting what was on Hotcopper, I do not hold an E trade account and I can't buy NVGN, does anyone else have an E Trade account? are they saying you have to contact your broker to buy? or can you buy online? I would be interested in the feedback.
News is on the way I believe!
GK said he was going to a non oncology area, he also said to a fellow poster that he would be working for the benefit of Novogen shareholders, look at the novogen website and look for the corporate structure, see what it says about non oncology, put all of that together and make up your own minds!
And just as a side note, a poster over on hotcopper whose nick is my1969z posted this !
You can NOT buy NVGN "on-line". Have to call and a broker buys it for you. Took me 25 mins. I asked them why, and they said it's because a company can be going through a merger, M&A or the likes.
But, you can sell on-line all you want.
Honest to god truth. You can not buy NVGN at-will.
work it out yourselves, there are moves afoot!
