DU is a product of the uranium enrichment
process. It is produced through gaseous
diffusion, where Uranium Hexaflouride is
heated into a gaseous form and forced
through a series of filters. Through this
process, the uranium is separated into two
steams having differing amounts of U-235
and U-238 isotopes. The stream having less
concentration of U-235 is referred to as
depleted UF6, which can then be processed
into DU alloys.
