C-Farm Waste Retrievals

C-Farm Tanks by the Numbers



C-Farm is the first of Hanford’s single-shell tank (SST) farms selected for waste retrieval. Radioactive and chemical waste is being pumped from C-Farm’s twelve 100-series tanks, and four smaller 200-series tanks. Once waste is retrieved from SSTs using one of the many retrieval methods and technologies, it is sent to newer, double-shell tanks, and will subsequently be sent to the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant to be turned into glass.
