What is MOX?
CB&I AREVA MOX Services, LLC, (often referred to as The MOX Project) is under contract with DOE's National Nuclear Security Administration to design, build, and operate a MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF) at the Savannah River Site in Aiken, South Carolina.
The reason for the MOX Project came in 2000 when the United States and the Russian Federation committed to each dispose of at least 34 metric tons of surplus plutonium, sufficient for approximately 8,500 nuclear weapons per country. A protocol signed in 2010 updated the agreement to specify that the plutonium be converted to MOX fuel thus beginning The MOX Project.
Once the project is completed, the facility will manufacture MOX fuel from uranium and weapons-grade plutonium and encase it in fuel rods designed for use in existing nuclear power plants.
