Caption: Nuclear fuel assembly at the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrate Works, Russia. This is the anodizing stage where the uranium fuel is oxidised into a ceramic form. It is then assembled into rods that are gathered together to form a fuel rod bundle. The rods are then used in a nuclear reactor, with a controlled nuclear chain reaction being used to generate electricity. A triangular symbol (left) warns that the machine is processing radioactive materials. Nuclear fuels use radioactive isotopes of uranium and/or plutonium. Novosibirsk is in southern Siberia, near Russia's border with Central Asia. Photographed on 18 August 2006.
