One million Curies found

LANL > Scientists help NNSA reduce nuclear danger

Los Alamos National Laboratory expertise helped the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (DNN) Radiological Material Removal Program’s Off-Site Source Recovery Project (OSRP) recover more than 1 million curies of radioactive sources since 1999.
The accomplishment represents a major milestone in protecting our nation and the world from material that could be used in “dirty bombs” by terrorists.
“Taking disused, unwanted and, in limited cases, abandoned nuclear materials out of harm’s reach supports the laboratory’s mission of reducing global nuclear danger,” said Terry Wallace, principal associate director for global security at Los Alamos. “This milestone represents tremendous progress in removing a potentially deadly hazard from all corners of the globe. Los Alamos helped usher in the nuclear age, so it’s quite appropriate that this laboratory continues to use its nuclear expertise to assist the DOE in stewardship of nuclear materials.”
Off-Site Source Recovery Project personnel recovered several high-activity sealed radioactive sources from a Maryland facility in November, which pushed the total recovered radioactivity above 1 million Curies.
