Earlier this year, Uttar Pradesh government had signed a MoU with World Trade Center, Noida to develop Tech zone as a nucleus of Mobile Open Exchange Zone (MOX), which is acting as a catalyst to enable growth in the mobile and allied sectors in Uttar Pradesh.
Instead of completing MOX, the administration, like the Obama administration before it, wants to blend the 34 tonnes of deadly plutonium - enough to make about 8,000 nuclear weapons - with an inert substance and bury it underground in a New Mexico's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).
The MOX plant is being built to convert approximately 50 metric tons of surplus plutonium from nuclear weapons to mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel for use in nuclear reactors.

CB&I (NYSE: CBI) said it has reported that the US Congress is continuing to fund the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MOX) project located at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, South Carolina.
The work to unload the MOX fuel rods from the freighter and store them at the plant is expected to finish by Thursday evening after local government officials have checked the levels of radiation.
