Iran steps up uranium enrichment at underground plant


Iran’boosts enrichment of uranium in an underground factory

Iran has intensified its enrichment activities with advanced equipment.

Iran has intensified its uranium enrichment activities using, in its plant Fordow underground, advanced equipment capable of moving more easily from one level of enrichment to another, according to a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency consulted on Saturday by Reuters.

The IAEA found on Saturday that Iran had begun supplying ter in enriched uranium hexafluoride up to 5% the cascade of 166 IR-6 centrifuges with modified subsensors at Fordow, the report says.

According the confidential report, Iran informed the agency on July 7 and the IAEA was able to verify this fact a few days later.

Diplomats Westerners have repeatedly expressed concern over the use of this technology, which makes it much easier and faster to upgrade to higher purity levels.

L& #x27;Iran has informed the IAEA of its intention to use these devices to enrich its uranium by up to 20%, according to the report.

Tehran also produces 60% enriched uranium at its Natanz site. Weapons-grade uranium is enriched to approximately 90%.
