Silex (SLX) is an ASX-listed company focussed on research, development and commercialisation of technologies across three platforms:
- nuclear energy
- solar energy
- advanced materials and instrumentation
Morgans Senior Analyst Scott Power spoke to Dr Michael Goldsworthy, CEO and Managing Director of Silex, in November 2012.
- laser technology for uranium enrichment
- timelines and milestone payments
- solar systems technology
SLX confirmed on 20 November 2012 that a preliminary evaluation is being undertaken regarding the potential to build an additional enrichment plant using the Silex Technology at the site of the existing gaseous diffusion enrichment plant in Paducah Kentucky, USA.
The evaluation includes early stage discussions between General Electric-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC (GLE) and the owner of the Paducah facilities, the US Department of Energy (DOE) and is dependent on further detailed analysis.
This is potentially significant news, albeit discussions are at an early stage, however the market should respond positively this morning.
