NUKEM – supplying the world’s commercial nuclear reactors for over 50 years NUKEM, with offices in Germany and the United States, has played a wide range of roles in the civil nuclear sector since 1960 and is currently one of the world’s largest intermediaries in the international nuclear fuel market. NUKEM consistently ranks as one of the top five providers of uranium to nuclear power plants in North America, South America, Europe and the Far East. In addition to its primary offering of uranium concentrates (U3O8), NUKEM also supplies conversion and enrichment both as services and as products (uranium hexafluoride (UF6) and enriched uranium product (EUP)). NUKEM is also active in reclaiming commercially usable uranium from processing scraps and residues. NUKEM sources its products primarily (but not exclusively) in the Central Asian states of the CIS, most prominently from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. For more than 20 years, NUKEM has enjoyed a successful commercial relationship with Kazakhstan – the world’s largest uranium producer via the environmentally benign in-situ leach process. NUKEM is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cameco Corporation since January 9, 2013.
