Blockson ChemicalBlockson Chemical

Blockson Chemical is an AWE facility from 1951-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

Blockson Chemical has a Special Exposure Cohort for all workers with specific cancers and with at least 250 days employment from March 1, 1951-June 30, 1960.

Blockson Chemical Company operated a plant which produced uranium from phosphoric acid. The AEC contracted with Blockson for the recovery of the uranium, which was ultimately used in weapons production. The AEC Uranium production work performed by Blockson was conducted in a one-story brick structure known as Building 55.

This listing is also intended to cover the AEC-funded laboratory, pilot plant and oxidation process, which also occurred at Blockson, and was related to the work in Building 55.

During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
