In 1942, Flying above Eastern Washington State a couple of days prior to Christmas, Col. Franklin Matthias was in search of something special. He was looking for the perfect place to manufacture weapons-grade plutonium. Franklin saw a vast desert to host processing plants, reactors, and other materials. He noticed that the close by Columbia River could help to cool reactors and generate lots of electricity from its Grand Coulee Dam. For more than forty years later, scientists and engineers continued to produce a rare and precious element, plutonium, in reactors and buildings at Hanford Site. Their experiments left waste, comprising of fifty-six million gallons including a number of elements, along with one that can speedily convert from benign to disastrous. That certain element is aluminum, also found in our kitchen foil and window frames, and nuclear fuel rods. Although it is very practical, it seriously complicates getting rid of waste materials from plenty of underground sewerages. To date, getting rid of waste materials is one of the most difficult engineering problems worldwide, as it requires, along with other things, forcing aluminum-laden waste across very long pipes. Under specific conditions, aluminum chemicals go from flowing like water to coming out like toothpaste. Using the currently available procedures to avoid plugging of pipes and cleaning up tank waste could cost billions and take ages in Washington State. New methods to save time or money firstly demand answers to intractable questions regarding aluminum and different other elements. These discoveries require a diverse, dedicated and intense group-IDREAM team. Director of IDREAM and chemist at the Washington State University, Mr. Sue Clark said:"Aluminum is one of the most abundant elements in all of it. If you want a hope of getting the waste out [of the tanks], you need to be able to work with the aluminum. And that’s what we’re doing." They are testing tiny aluminum-bearing particles mixed in the waste. The activities, mass, nature, and symphony of the particles change continuously due to the tanks conditions.
