Nuclear Weapons: Information on Safety Concerns with the Uranium Processing Facility
David C. Trimble (au)
The Y-12 Nat. Security Complex in Oak Ridge, TN, is the Nat. Nuclear Security Admin.'s (NNSA) site for conducting enriched uranium activities, producing uranium-related components for nuclear warheads and bombs, and processing nuclear fuel for the U.S. Navy. NNSA is a separately organized agency within the Dept. of Energy (DOE). According to NNSA, the Y-12 plant's current enriched uranium operations, which are conducted in four separate buildings, have key shortcomings: (1) an inefficient workflow; (2) continually rising operations and maintenance costs due to facility age; and (3) processes that could expose workers to radiological contamination, among other things. To address these issues, in 2004, NNSA decided to construct a new Uranium Processing Facility (UPF). This report identifies the concerns, if any, that the Safety Board has raised with the UPF and the actions, if any, NNSA has taken to address those concerns. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
