On August 29th, the International Atomic Energy Agency, with the Government of Kazakhstan and NTI, will launch the low-enriched uranium (LEU) bank in Kazakhstan – a facility that will house LEU as a back-up to the commercial market. The LEU Bank creates an important option for countries that want the benefits of peaceful nuclear energy - without the significant costs of building their own enrichment facilities and without the risks of proliferation. The LEU Bank was jump-started by NTI, which provided initial funding for the bank, thanks to a generous $50 million investment from American businessman and NTI advisor Warren Buffett.
