  • uranium
  • 2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and a subcategory of source material or ores involved in the extraction or concentration of uranium or thorium milling in the State in accordance with the agreement authorized by Section 274b. (wise-uranium.org)
  • When fissile uranium absorbs a neutron, it starts fissioning and releases energy, emitting several neutrons. (nirs.org)
  • Inhaling a mixture of the uranium oxides with a wide range of particle sizes in the smoke and dust coming from burning DU penetrators or resuspended dust works like a time release capsule, with the uranium oxides dissolving at different rates and entering the bloodstream over a prolonged time. (ringnebula.com)
  • This TS provides guides to good practice, updates existing reference material, and discusses practical lessons learned relevant to the safe handling, processing, and storage of uranium. (docplayer.net)
  • gases
  • Several of the underground storage tanks currently used to store waste at Hanford have been placed on the Flammable Gas Watch List, because the waste is either known or suspected to generate, store, and episodically release flammable gases. (unt.edu)
  • Research at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has sought to quantify the release of flammable gases during salt well pumping operations. (unt.edu)
  • cause
  • Salt well pumping to remove the interstitial liquid from SSTs is expected to cause the release of much of the retained gas, posing a number of safety concerns. (unt.edu)
  • DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / December 3, 2018 / Radon is a hazardous and commonly occurring natural gas that is radioactive and believed to be the second leading cause of lung cancer. (oilandgas360.com)
  • Critics
  • RICHLAND, Wash. - The collapse of a tunnel containing radioactive waste at the Hanford nuclear weapons complex underscored what critics have long been saying: that the toxic remnants of the Cold War are being stored in haphazard and unsafe conditions, and time is running out to deal with the problem.

  • conventional
  • It is able to pierce armor, including DU armor that can withstand conventional shelling, and as it slices through hard materials, it heats up and ignites. (ringnebula.com)
  • Emergency
  • The CDW, which usually warns of a specific hazard and gives specific protective action, has a higher priority than the Local Area Emergency (LAE). (weather.gov)
  • The CEM is a higher priority message than the Local Area Emergency (LAE), but the hazard is less specific then the Civil Danger Warning (CDW). (weather.gov)
  • potential
  • Higher sea levels mean that flooding will travel farther inland, creating potential hazards in areas that may have previously been considered safe. (greenmedinfo.com)
  • provide
  • Bob Goldstein, US Nuclear CEO, says, "Solving the Radon problem was a natural for US Nuclear since we understand radioactive monitoring and measuring probably better than anyone in the construction industry and we provide some of the most accurate detection devices in the world.
