  •  Again, it's not 30,000 drums of Pu (0+ / 0-)

    It's 30,000 drums of material that has material with low levels of Pu contamination.

    It's called "contact-handled" waste because personnel don't need to use more than standard-issue protective gear to process it.

    So I'm not saying it's completely safe, but the danger isn't as great as what the "no nuclear reaction is safe crowd" says it is.
