The Mining and Chemical Combine was established in 1950 to produce plutonium for weapons.[1] It is in the closed city Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Krai. The company is currently part of the Rosatom group.[2]

The complex has an interim storage facility.[3] There is also a 60 t/year commercial mixed oxide (MOX) fuel fabrication facility (MFFF).[4] The place employs 7000 people.[5]

The MOX production line completed a 10 kg batch in September 2014.[6]
