Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Rensselaer is a beryllium vendor facility for 1951-1952 and 1963 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.
Under an AEC contract in the early 1950s, researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute investigated methods for improving the ductility of beryllium by coating the material with copper. The Brush Beryllium Company supplied the beryllium powder for the project. RPI also borrowed 400 lbs. of beryllium for AEC-sponsored research from Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1963.
Scientists at RPI conducted a number of AEC-sponsored research studies in the 1950s and 1960s using enriched uranium obtained from commercial sources. Available records provide no evidence of a link between RPI research and the AEC weapons program.
DOE Legacy Management has a Rensselaer webpage since it was considered for FUSRAP.
