Published:
RICHLAND -- A new $3 million engineering laboratory was officially opened Wednesday in Richland.
The building will be used for testing for the Hanford vitrification plant, which will turn radioactive waste into glass logs for long-term storage.
The Tri-City Herald reported that the lab was built by EnergySolutions, which has a subcontract for the testing. The company turned the lab over to Washington State University Tri-Cities but is leasing it back for the vitrification testing.
After that work, WSU Tri-Cities will have full use of the building for engineering programs and research that could include work on biofuels or wine science.
