Canister Storage Building and Interim Storage Area

Canister Storage Building

The Canister Storage Building plays an important role as an interim storage facility in Hanford’s cleanup mission. The CSB is a 42,000-square-foot facility in Hanford’s 200 East Area that stores over 400 multi-canister overpacks containing about 2,300 tons of irradiated fuel that came from several Hanford facilities. The irradiated fuel was cleaned, packaged, dried, and relocated to the CSB to provide safe interim storage in a consolidated location.

For more information, please see the Canister Storage Building and Interim Storage Area Fact Sheet.
