Bechtel National Inc.’s radioactive waste treatment plant project has provided more than 330 internship for college students seeking real-world experience.
As originally envisioned, the Hanford Vit Plant would treat high-level and low-activity radioactive waste simultaneously. To begin treating waste as soon as practicable, the U.S. Department of Energy developed a sequenced approach that would treat low-activity waste first, as soon as 2022.

Two radiological engineers were recognized as experts in their fields by the Columbia Chapter of the Health Physics Society.
Vitrification is accomplished by mixing waste from Hanford's underground tanks with glass-forming materials in high-temperature melters. As the materials are heated to 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit, the waste is incorporated into the molten glass. This “liquid glass” is poured into stainless steel canist...
