More Recycling Means Less Waste for DOE Complex
Rocket engines were tested in separate structures called test cells. Test Cell C, seen here before demolition, was one of three test cells located in the Nuclear Rocket Development Station that ceased operations in 1973. Lead recovered during demolition had been an integral part of the facility’s construction, serving as a primary material for radiation shielding. In September 2011, a total of 33,000 pounds of lead was shipped from the NNSS to the recycling company, Toxco Inc. Toxco, which received the lead in the form of bricks, battery plates, and counterweights, plans to use the material to make protective shielding for government and commercial nuclear industrial operations.
