Uranium can be reused after the separation from the other products of the nuclear fission: uranium enriched with the isotope 235 as fissile material and depleted uranium (mainly the isotpoe 238) as fertile material.

Yes! It uses uranium which is a substance that cant be reused.


Yes, uranium can be reused as nuclear fuel or for other applications.


- uranium can be reused as nuclear fuel in thermal reactors only if the uranium-235 concentration is greater than 0,5 % - depleted uranium can by used in other types of nuclear reactors: with thorium cycle, fast reactors, reproductive nuclear reactors - depleted uranium can also be used in nonnuclear military applications or in civilian nonnuclear applications


they are non renewable because they cant be regrown or reused.


Non renewableUnsustainableExamples are: Fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas)GoldIronUranium


uranium or jelly i cant quite remember



If you cannot use it more than once, than it is nonrenewable, it gets burned any cant be reused


they cant be reused like trees,cans,plants,and more so here are 2 nonrenewable resources coal and oil


No. End of story. Propane can not be reused or recycled.


Yes, aluminum can be recycled and reused.


uranium i think i cant be sure, maybe, i dont no


All fossil fuel could not be reused: oil, natural gas, wood, and coal. Nuclear fuel when got out of the nuclear reactor could be reprocessed to get uranium and plutonium from to be resided again as fuel.


Recycling is when items that can be reused are reused, and the act of saving those items for reuse. Some of the items that can be reused are paper and most plastics.


Uranium dioxide, triuranium octaoxide, uranium triiodide, uranium tetraiodide, uranium tetrachloride, uranium tetrafluoride, uranium hexafluoride, ammonium diuranate, uranium sulphide, uranium nitride, uranium carbides, uranium silicides and hundred others.


some:The plutonium and other transuranics can be recycled. They make excellent reactor fuel.The unburned uranium can be recycled.Many of the fission products could be separated for industrial and medical uses.


Enriched uranium: uranium with more than 0.7 % uranium 235. Uranium 238 is not enriched uranium.


tRNA can be reused since it regains its structure after translation with the amino acids. ALso, mRNA can be reused while the end of it is still in use.


uranyl nitrate, uranium dioxide, uranium octaoxide, uranium hexafluoride, uranyl acetate, uranium tetrachloride, uranium carbide, uranium nitride, uranium tetraiodide, uranium sulfide, ammonium diuranate


Isotopes Uranium 235 and uranium 238 are only natural isotopes of the element uranium.


They are reused. Glass is crushed and melted to make new items.

uranium dioxide, uranyl acetate, uranyl nitrate, uranium octaoxide, uranium tetrachloride, uranium hexafluoride, uranyl sulfate, uranium nitride, uranium sulfide, uranium carbide, ammonium diuranate, uranium oxinate, uranium selenide


It is an unrenewable source, meaning it cant be reused or recycles. Once used its pretty much gone Also it polutes the earth
