DUF6 Mission

Mid-America Conversion Services, LLC (MCS) manages the Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride (DUF6) Conversion Facilities at the U.S. Department of Energy sites near Paducah, Kentucky and Portsmouth, Ohio.

The conversion facilities were designed and constructed to convert DOE’s inventory of DUF 6 produced by the former Paducah Gaseous Diffusion and the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plants, to a more stable uranium oxide form for reuse, storage, and/or transportation and disposition. MCS’ focus will be on continuing to provide cylinder surveillance and maintenance (S&M) for the DUF6 conversion facilities and associated equipment, operating the conversion facilities to convert the DUF6 from the inventory at Paducah and Portsmouth to uranium oxide; reusing, storing, transporting and/or and disposing of the DUF6 conversion process end-products; selling the aqueous hydrofluoric acid (AqHF) product; and, providing S&M services for the cylinder storage yards.
