Developing Efficient Solutions for the Nation’s Nuclear Waste
August 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more. Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.
All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.
Please see the tour description and registration link below:
Over 75 years after the “Nuclear Age” of the 1940s, researchers at PNNL are enabling the future of nuclear power and the safe management of past and future waste from nuclear materials and energy development. On this tour, learn how PNNL is advancing glass waste forms and robotic waste tank inspection systems to improve Hanford Site cleanup and assure the continued safe operation of existing nuclear infrastructure.
