November 27, 2017

By Maegan Murray, WSU Tri-Cities

DOE logoRICHLAND, Wash. – A federal project director from the U.S. Department of Energy will discuss how the Hanford waste treatment plant will immobilize radioactive waste by turning it into glass as part of a continuing lecture series from 3-4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, in the Washington State University Tri-Cities East Auditorium.

DOE funds radioactive isotope study
July 25, 2008

PULLMAN – Chemist Nathalie Wall of Washington State University and a colleague at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
have been awarded more than $600,000 from the Department of Energy for a study of how a radioactive isotope moves in soil and water.

Information from the study will help scientists understand and predict radioactive particle migration on the Hanford Site. 

Chemists know quite a bit about the solubility and movement of radioactive materials in some chemical states, but have little information about other natural conditions. Wall’s study concerns chemical behavior in states of limited … » More …
