The challenge is this: Preserve two key processing facilities at Y-12 National Security Complex. These two facilities will house all nuclear material processing activities not incorporated into the Uranium Processing Facility design.

To better understand what it takes to keep an older, large facility going, a team at Y­12 conducted two workshops. The invitees included other DOE/NNSA sites and outside experts to share knowledge and experience dealing with aging infrastructure.
