PDCF Project Receives Outstanding Team Performance Award

January 2000
Congratulations to the ETD staff on the Pit Disassembly and Conversion Facility project that received an Outstanding Team Performance Award for exemplary performance. Team participants included ETD, National Security, Energy Science & Technology Directorates and Battelle Columbus Operations employees - exemplifying a "One Battelle" endeavor. The Battelle Pit Disassembly and Conversion Facility team contributed to numerous key aspects of the project's design. In turn, an essential milestone was completed in mid-September. The purpose of the project is to design a facility for converting surplus weapons-grade plutonium into an unclassified oxide form suitable for disposition as a component of mixed oxide fuel. Plans are underway to build the facility at DOE's Savannah River Site.
