At Los Alamos National Laboratory, virtually all plutonium operations occur within the Plutonium Facility at Technical Area 55. TA-55 is the nation's most modern plutonium science and manufacturing facility, and it is the only fully operational plutonium facility in the nation. To meet future mission needs, several of TA-55's plutonium laboratories need updating.
