Iranian Nuclear Production Statistics Data
Average production, per month, of 3.5% LEU at the Natanz Enrichment Plant 248 kg
Kilograms of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) that Iran has enriched to 3.5% U-235 15,651 kg
Amount of U-235 being stored in gaseous form for further enrichment 7,854 kg
– Number of first generation implosion bombs this 7,854 kg could produce 7
– Time needed to convert this uranium to one bomb’s worth of finished uranium (90% U-235) 3-12 months
Before using uranium in a warhead, it must be enriched to weapon-grade (90 percent or more U-235) and processed into a metallic shape sufficient to explode in a chain reaction.
Cumulative total of uranium that Iran has enriched to 19.75% 178 kg
Average monthly production rate of 19.75 % LEU at the Natanz and Fordow plants 14.75 kg
Total number of IR-1 centrifuges at the Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant 9,000
Total number of IR-1, IR-2m, and IR-4 uranium enrichment centrifuges currently active in Iran 17,600
