The material, which is in the form of 14 standard fuel elements and four control fuel elements and is located at the CERCA facility, will be transferred to Cekmece for use as research material and for isotope production in the TR-2 reactor. The low-enriched uranium silicide was originally sent to CERCA under NRC Export License XSNM3531.
