 Rare Earths-W.R. Grace, Wayne New Jersey

 

Rare Earths/W.R. GraceRare Earths/W.R. Grace

Rare Earths is an AWE facility for 1950-1984 and 1988-2001 and is a DOE site from 1985-1987 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims for the AWE years and to file both Part B and Part E claims for the DOE years.

Rare Earths extracted thorium from monazite sands from 1950-1960 under various contracts with the AEC. The AEC needed the thorium for its weapons program. Although the processing of monazite sands continued at Rare Earths through 1971, it was no longer performed under contract for the AEC, but rather was for commercial purposes.

Remediation activities were conducted from 1985-1987 by Thermo Analytical/Eberline and Bechtel National Inc. (BNI) under the BNI umbrella contract as part of the Formerly Utilized Site Remediation Action Program (FUSRAP).

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.
