Putting Science to Work at SRNL

Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) is a unique facility within the Department of Energy (DOE) complex, located in South Carolina. The genesis of the of the lab was deeply rooted in industrial scale, complex chemical processing to support the United States’ weapons program. Decades after the Manhattan project, the Laboratory’s mission was refocused on the environmental management of legacy waste resulting from the weapons program. Today, SRNL has evolved into a multiprogram laboratory focusing on a diverse set of challenges at the nexus of fundamental science and national security, while excelling in environmental management programs and maintaining its critical and historic expertise in nuclear weapons programs. Presentations in this session will highlight the diversity and breadth of current programs at the Lab.
