GOLDEN, Colo. -- A Colorado company is tapped to solve a lingering problem at the government's top lab for nuclear research in Idaho.
Government scientists haven't figured out how to safely dispose of radioactive waste, so Hazen Research in Golden will start testing a solution on a much smaller-scale next month.
The hope is to turn the liquid waste into solid pellets so that it can be stored easier.
No actual radioactive waste from the Idaho site has been sent to Hazen and there is no plan for any to be sent.
