Billions of dollars later, Energy Department pulls plug on partly built nuclear fuel plant https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/nat...story.html

Excerpt:

"Estimates submitted to Congress by the NNSA said the government will have sunk an estimated $7.6 billion into the MOX facility by its closure and would need to spend nearly $50 billion more to finish construction and convert the plutonium over the coming decades, according to people familiar with the estimate. The government believes that diluting and disposing of the plutonium will instead cost about $18.2 billion over about 30 years, they said."

Energy Department issues scathing evaluation of nuclear project
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/...story.html

Excerpt:

"Overall, the NNSA awarded nothing from the $2.7 million available for a bonus payment to the contractors. It said, “there continued to be a lack of transparency and openness in external communications with key project stakeholders by the contractor including continued release of misleading and inaccurate project information.”"
