Kurion Opens Facility In Washington

Irvine-based nuclear waste treatment developer Kurion said today that it has opened up a new facility in Richland, Washington. The firm said its new Modular Vitrification System (MVS) test facility will be used to mature and commercially demonstrate its technology, which is being used for nuclear waste cleanup. Kurion is developing nuclear waste treatment technology; vitrification is one of those technologies, which uses glass to encase and immobilize nuclear waste.
