AREVA Malvési: the first step in the conversion of uranium
The AREVA Malvési industrial site provides the first step in the conversion of uranium concentrate taken from mining sites into uranium tetrafluoride (UF4) for electricity companies across the globe. This transformation is carried out at the AREVA Pierrelatte industrial site (in France's Drôme region), which converts the uranium tetrafluoride into uranium hexafluoride (UF6), the final step before enrichment.
Operations: the conversion of natural uranium
The Malvési plant purifies the uranium ore concentrate to a very high level. It then carries out the first step in the fluorination process.
AREVA Malvési has been awarded multiple certifications which guarantee that its operations meet the strictest of environmental and social standards.
AREVA Malvési strives to limit the impact of its activities on the environment. The surrounding environment is subject to constant monitoring.
In keeping with AREVA's commitments, the site of Malvési has implemented measures for environment, safety and health-security.
Spread of information
AREVA Malvési publishes an environmental, social and corporate report every year.
Dialogue with stakeholders
AREVA Malvési maintains constant dialogue with its stakeholders: public inquiry, CLIC, CLIGEET, reports, etc.
Since 1959, the AREVA Malvési plant has undergone a number of changes, leading up to the launch of the COMURHEX II project.
