Battelle West JeffersonBattelle West Jefferson or Memorial Institute

Battelle West Jefferson is an AWE facility for 1956-1985 and a DOE facility for 1986 to the present.  Workers during the AWE years are eligible to file Part B claims.  Workers during the DOE years are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

From 1943 to 1986, Battelle Memorial Institute performed atomic energy research and development for the Department of Energy and its predecessor agencies. The Battelle Laboratories have two separate locations in Columbus - King Avenue and West Jefferson. Battelle participated in research on fabrication of uranium and fuel elements, reactor development, submarine propulsion, fuel reprocessing, and the safe use of reactor vessels and piping.

At the West Jefferson location, Battelle operated a large hot cell facility and a research reactor. Reactor operations began in October 1956, and ended in December 1974. The reactor was defueled and partially dismantled in 1975 and Battelle's license was changed to possession-only status.

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.
