Abstract

The work carried out in the field of uranium isotope separation, by gaseous diffusion and by ultracentrifugation, is reviewed. An economic estimate of the various parameters involved in the cost is given, and it is shown that only very large gaseous diffusion plants, corresponding to a programme of enriched uranium reactors of at least 4000 MWe to be installed yearly, can give an economically acceptable enriched uranium production. (authors) [French] La communication passe en revue les realisations effectuees dans le domaine de la separation des isotopes de l'uranium, par diffusion gazeuse et par ultracentrifugation. Elle donne une estimation economique des differents parametres intervenant dans les couts et met en evidence que seules les tres grandes usines de diffusion gazeuse, correspondant a un programme d'installation de reacteurs a uranium enrichi d'au moins 4000 MWe nouveaux par an, peuvent conduire a des productions d'uranium enrichi economiquement acceptables.
