Global Inventory of Highly Enriched Uranium 2017
(Data: End of 2015)
|Country||Military Use(ton)||Non-military Use(ton)|
Military: HEU used in nuclear warheads or stored for use in weapons; HEU used in reactor fuel for naval nuclear propulsion (including spent fuel)
Non-military: HEU used in fuel for research and testing reactors; HEU declared as surplus for military purposes.
The stockpile of fissile materials includes estimated ones with large uncertainties and thus total quantities are expressed in rounded numbers.
