      At least 50 of the plutonium cores, also known as pits, will be produced each year at the U.S. Energy Department's Savanna River Site . The Savannah River Site (SRS), near Aiken, SC, is a km2 Department of Energy installation at which some localized areas contain elevated concentrations of .

      Since the early 's Savannah River Site (SRS) has received over million gallons of waste into the F and H Tank Farms, commonly known as the High Level Waste System (HLW) system. This waste was neutralized, insoluble sludge settled, and supernate was evaporated to form saltcake such that as of January only 37 million gallons of waste is Author: J. Carter.   In a move that some observers did not expect, the U.S. Energy Dept. on Oct. 12 declined to award a $billion follow-on contract for liquid-nuclear-waste management at its Savannah River nuclear.

      A U.S. Soldier in the nd Engineer Company, South Carolina Army National Guard, operates an excavator while conducting annual training at the Savannah River Site in Aiken, South Carolina, June. In the United States, more than 3, canisters of borosilicate glass contain vitrified, high-level waste from the Savannah River Site (defense waste processing facility) and canisters at West Valley, New York. In France, approximat canisters of HLW glass have been produced at the La Hague by: 8.
