The B Plant Reprocessing Canyon
This was the world’s first large-scale reprocessing facility. It chopped up irradiated fuel rods from the Hanford B-Reactor, dissolved them in acid, and recovered their plutonium for use in the Nagasaki bomb. Today the B Plant houses the Waste Encapsulation Storage Facility, which packages cesium-137 in metal capsules for use in America’s commercial food irradiation industry.
