INB Caetité needs to double its production from 400 to 800 tonnes of uranium concentrate to cater for the national demand, which will increase with the completion of the power plant Angra 3. A hired company will carry out the basic duplication project.
The duplication project in INB Caetité foresees changes in the uranium extraction process, construction of new areas and automation of the whole process. The chemical plant will undergo significant changes, with the construction of new areas and implementation of new equipment with dimensions suitable for the processing of higher amounts of ore and more efficiently. These adjustments will allow better use of the mineral, keeping care for the environment, safety and occupational health.
