New Plant in Ohio

August 1952
Time;8/25/1952, Vol. 60 Issue 8, p18
The article reports on the plan of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) to spend 1.2 billion dollars on construction of an installation in Pike County, Ohio in August 1952. The radioactive isotope U-235 will be produced in Pike County. The plant is said to be considered as a significant development in the U.S. program to accelerate atomic stockpiling. The availability of water is one of the factors considered in the decision to locate the facility in Pike County.
