metronuclear is a Diverse Business Enterprise with two purposes: (1) engaging in commercial and investment transactions along the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle in support of the production of clean energy with zero greenhouse gas emissions; and (2) facilitating the economic participation of communities traditionally underrepresented in the nuclear energy industry. We are a member of the World Nuclear Association.
Our founders launched metronuclear after New York and Illinois approved annual ratepayer subsidies for nuclear power plants. One of our co-founders pioneered uranium trading at two global investment banks; the other co-founder has deep experience in community development and chairs New York City Community Board 9 in Harlem.
