 Lindsay Light and Chemical Company, West Chicago Illinois

 

Lindsay Light and ChemicalLindsay Light and Chemical

Lindsay is an AWE facility from 1942-March 1, 2011 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

Lindsay Light and Chemical was a commercial processor of monazite sands, which yield several commercially valuable products, including the radioactive metal thorium. The Manhattan Engineer District and then the Atomic Energy Commission purchased thorium from Lindsay; AEC contractors purchased a variety of products from this firm as well. Documents indicate that the firm supplied thorium to the MED and AEC through at least 1953. The facility received a source material license from the AEC in 1956, and it continued to process radioactive materials for commercial purposes until 1973.

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.
