Y-12 involves much more than maintaining the nation’s nuclear stockpile.
Work completed in the uranium processing facility will include dismantlement and disposition, material recycle and recovery, nuclear nonproliferation, producing fuel for naval reactors, and supplying medical isotopes that will be used in cancer treatment.
Opponents of the new Y-12 uranium processing facility are simply misleading the public in referring to this facility as a “bomb plant.”
