NNSA operates Tritium facilities at SRS to supply and process tritium, a radioactive form of hydrogen gas that is a vital component of nuclear weapons. The NNSA-SRS loads tritium and non-tritium reservoirs; including reclamation of previously used tritium reservoirs, receipt, packing and shipping of reservoirs; recycling, extraction, and enrichment of tritium gas and laboratory operations.  SRS also plays a critical role in NNSA's nonproliferation missions, helping the United States meet its commitments to plutonium and uranium dispositon and security.
