Hanford Selected for GNEP Grant

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- The Hanford Nuclear Reservation is one of eleven possible sites selected by the Energy Department to reprocess spent nuclear fuel.

The sites can receive up to $16 million dollars next year for studies for possible facilities.

The money will be used to look at new ways to recycle spent nuclear fuel.

A siting study will be done to see how viable the Hanford site is for recycling.
