GE Evendale

GE Evendale is a beryllium vendor facility for 1951-1970 and a DOE facility for 1961-June 30, 1970.  Workers for the beryllium vendor years are eligible to file Part B claims.  Workers for the DOE years are eligible to file for both Part B and Part E claims.

A Special Exposure Cohort exists for GE Evendale for all workers with specific cancers and with at least 250 days from January 1, 1961 through June 30, 1970.

General Electric’s Aircraft Nuclear Propulsion (ANP) Project began in 1951 at the facility in Evendale, Ohio. The ANP work was performed in a facility known as Air Force Plant 36, a 68-acre portion of the larger General Electric Aircraft Engine Plant. The ANP Project was terminated in 1961; however, the use of radioactive materials continued under other Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) contracts. From 1961 through June 30, 1970, the AEC contract work occupied buildings C and D and certain other smaller auxiliary structures, under a use permit from the Air Force. Custody of the facilities was returned to the Air Force on June 30, 1970. 

AEC operations at GE-Ohio during the Department of Energy (DOE) operations period from January 1, 1961 through June 30, 1970 included: testing fuel element materials and high-temperature reactor materials; testing the effects of radiation on refractory metals and alloys; examining radiation effects in beryllium oxide; examining fission product transport processes in reactor fuels; testing the effects on clad uranium-oxide fuels in meltdown environments; developing a process for densification of thoria; and calcination of thorium-oxide in high-temperature furnaces.
