NOTE: Percentages are estimates and vary depending on global reactor production schedules.
aThese percentages include production of Mo-99 by ANSTO. However, ANSTO shut down its production in January 2007 and has been purchasing Mo-99 while it converts its processing facilities to use the CNEA-developed LEU-based Mo-99 production process.
