It provides substantive new information from major uranium production centres in Africa, Australia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and North America. Projections of nuclear generating capacity and reactor-related uranium requirements through are also featured, along with an analysis of long-term uranium supply and demand issues. have jointly prepared periodic updates (currently every two years) on world uranium resources, production and demand. Such updates have been published in what are commonly known as the “Red Books”. The 26th edition of the Red Book reflects information current as of 1 January File Size: 8MB. Published every other year, Uranium Resources, Production, and Demand, or the “Red Book” as it is commonly known, is jointly prepared by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency. It is the recognised world reference on uranium and is based on official information received from 43 countries. This report is part of the IAEA’s programme on uranium supply and demand analysis. As it includes the first IAEA projection of uranium supply to , it provides the reader with an understanding of how some alternative uranium supply scenarios could evolve over this period. The analysis is based on current knowledge of uranium resources and.

Identified resources recoverable (reasonably assured resources plus inferred resources), to US$ /kg U, 1/1/17, from OECD NEA & IAEA, Uranium Resources, Production and Demand ('Red Book'). The total recoverable identified resources to US$ /kg U is million tonnes U. While decreased production by the largest uranium country and the largest uranium mine has helped the U3O8 spot price rally, demand from the nuclear sector is also driving once-weak prices higher. “I believed uranium prices would start to improve due to all .   The 26 th edition of the "Red Book", a recognised world reference on uranium jointly prepared by the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was published today. The report provides analyses and information from 49 uranium producing and consuming countries.   These are among the main findings of the latest edition of Uranium Resources, Production and Demand, also known as the “Red Book”, a world reference jointly prepared every two years by the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The 27th edition of the Red Book provides.

Supply & Demand. The uranium market has improved significantly relative to a year ago. There have been substantial production cuts, cuts to some secondary supplies, reductions in producer inventories, and an increase in demand for uranium in the spot market from producers and financial players. Uranium is the raw material used to produce fuel for long-lived nuclear power facilities, necessary for the generation of significant amounts of baseload low-carbon electricity for decades to come. Although a valuable commodity, declining market prices for uranium in recent years, driven by uncertainties concerning the evolution in the use of nuclear power, have led to significant production.

The history of demand and supply since is also outlined, with some distinctive periods apparent. The costs of producing uranium are then considered in terms of both cash costs and full costs of mines. The longer-term outlook for supply and demand is then considered for the period up to
