Natural Uranium Fuel Pellet Fabrication

At BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada’s (BWXT NEC) Toronto facility, we manufacture ceramic pellets from natural uranium dioxide powder.

After pressing, baking, grinding to a precise size and inspecting the pellets, we send them to our facility in Peterborough where they are placed into fuel bundles for CANDU® power stations in Ontario.

The Toronto facility (along with our Peterborough operation) is licensed by Canada’s nuclear regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). BWXT NEC is committed to meeting all of its licence requirements.

More information on our environmental and safety performance can be found in our Annual Compliance Report, which is available here.
