Depleted Uranium. Depleted uranium (DU) is previously enriched uranium that has had its radioactivity largely spent and, as such, is a very weak alpha and gamma emitter (Gwaltney-Brant, ). Lesions produced by depleted uranium are thereby related to the metal itself rather than any emitted radiation.

Because uranium is used as a fuel in nuclear power plants and in the production of some nuclear weapons. Depleted Uranium (DU) is not found naturally.

It is radioactive waste, produced as a result of enriching uranium for use in nuclear power plants or for the pro-duction of weapons. In natural uranium 0,7 % is fissionable, in enriched uranium ,5 % and in depleted uranium 0,2 %.
