On Monday, October 31, 2016, after more than 20 years of planning, the demolition of what is considered Hanford’s most hazardous facility was delayed due to high winds. The Tri-City Herald reported that it should continue some time this week.
“The Plutonium Finishing Plant, also known as PFP, represented the end of the line (the final procedure) associated with plutonium production at Hanford. PFP was also known as “Z-Plant” due to the fact that no further Hanford activity related to plutonium production would be done after the plutonium had been processed here. The plant began operations in 1949.” (DOE Source)
