 Pantex Plant, Amarillo Texas

 

Pantex PlantPantex Plant

The Pantex Plant is a DOE facility from 1951 to the present so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

Pantex has a Special Exposure Cohort which covers all workers with specific cancers and at least 250 days of employment for January 1, 1958-December 31, 1991.

In the 1950s, the Atomic Energy Commission began manufacturing high explosives for nuclear weapons at the Pantex Plant (Pantex). Today, Pantex continues to fabricate high explosives and assemble nuclear weapons. The principal operations at this site, however, are the dismantling of retired nuclear weapons and the maintenance of the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile. Pantex, which is operated by DOE's Office of Defense Programs, is the only facility in the United States that performs these operations.

Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.
