U.S. Firms Enter into Partnership to Recycle Nuclear Fuel

As the world moves away from the use of fossil fuels in favor of renewable energies in an effort to decrease carbon emissions, interest in the use of uranium as a nuclear fuel continues to grow.
Uranium, which is a non-carbon-emitting fuel, is mostly used by nuclear power plants to generate electricity for power grids. However, once the fuel is spent and cannot be used anymore, it becomes radioactive waste. Experts had not found a way to re-purpose this fuel, until now.
