Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) has been at the forefront of our nation’s security and environmental challenges or over 70 years, initially serving as the technical engine driving the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site’s comprehensive nuclear enterprise. Today, SRNL has expanded from its site-specific mission to become an internationally recognized leader solving the evolving needs of our nation. Building on past successes, SRNL performs cutting-edge scientific research and technology development in the following areas:
Pioneering Environmental Science
Apply science and technology to reduce the risk associated with radiological waste and containment at sites in the U.S. and abroad
Securing Nuclear Materials
Progress the state-of-the-art of radiological materials handling and chemical engineering processes to support our nation's nuclear materials management needs
Enhancing National Security Objectives
Develop and deploy integrated capabilities to systematically detect, assess and analyze nuclear materials, operations and events in the field
Discovering Solutions for the Future
Innovate next-generation technologies for energy, national security and cyber security applications.
As a multidisciplinary research and development center, accomplished scientists and engineers work alongside employees of all levels and background, applying state-of-the-art science to provide practical, high-value, cost-effective solutions to solve our nation’s most challenging environmental and security problem. We put science to work!
