Idaho National Laboratories near , Idaho Falls is the site of several land based nuclear reactors in which experiments have been ongoing for many many years. Experiments in prototype reactors and reactor design are done there. Also training for up and coming nuclear personel....they are trained and qualified there as well as other places in the country.


All this meaning they produce significant amounts of radioactive waste.


As to the Sodium type..While I am not for certain ..I believe this is a coolant for certain types of Reactor designs.

It appears they are now working on a way to get rid of this stuff or process it to reduce the radiation levels in it....obviously it has a high radiation level.

It appears they have a large quantity of it stored on site.


For those of you not familiar with the history. and possibly one reason for the caution in particular at Idaho Falls, is the SL-1 Nuclear Accident at the Idaho Nuclear Facility in the early 1960s is the reason for the caution.

I strongly suggest to the readers here that they look up the SL 1 accident on Wiki.

Some of the particulars about this accident are still classified to this very day.

Today, unless someone in particular, should mention this accident, most people have not a clue that a horrible nuclear accident happened there long before Chernobyl or Three Mile Island. 

Compared to Three Mile Island and Chernobyl...the Accident at Idaho Laboratories SL-1 site is hardly it at all mentioned. Someone does not want most of the public to know about this history.

You can go to Google Earth and type in SL-1 site Atomic City, Idaho and hit enter ..it will take you to the olde SL-1 location which has today been leveled and the site bulldozed over.


Here is the link.




Perhaps this will give some readers an idea or understanding why they are so cautious about this kind of thing.

For within all aspects of the nuclear industry the Accident at the  SL-1 site is still alive and strong and even part of their training/indoctrination briefings...though  most of the public has never heard of this history and incident.


Hope this helps,
