Officials for Honeywell’s Metropolis plant say the facility will begin full production of uranium hexafluoride this morning.  Honeywell made the announcement yesterday after the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s completion of a plant upgrade review last week. 

NRC Region II Administrator Victor McCree says the company has appropriately enhanced the Metropolis plant’s ability to withstand earthquakes and tornados.
