CCS Gets a Lift in Washington

The Biden administration and a bipartisan group of senators are reviving efforts to impose US sanctions on Russian nuclear giant Rosatom ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Proponents of sanctions on Capitol Hill want any ban on Russian supply paired with funding to support domestic nuclear fuel supply. Because such funding is now less likely under the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, the US Department of Energy (DOE) is considering redirecting some of the $6 billion in funds for struggling US reactors to the domestic nuclear fuel effort.
