(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — As Areva expands its uranium enrichment capabilities in the Middle East, halted plans in Idaho Falls could soon see an upturn. Officials tell Local News 8 that the proposed enrichment plant in Idaho Falls could become a reality if Areva’s investors see success in the United Arab Emirates. Opponents argue that the Idaho Falls plant won’t ever be economically feasible as the world’s demand for enriched uranium is on the decline.
