Applied Process Engineering Laboratory (APEL)

The Radiological Materials and Technology Development group is physically housed in the Applied Process and Engineering Laboratory (APEL), 350 Hills Street, Richland WA, 99352.

APEL is an eastern Washington technology business startup center with engineering and manufacturing scale space, as well as wet laboratories, bio laboratories and electronic laboratories. Prototypes or pilot plants can be tested and initial manufacturing conducted using APEL's utilities, services and permits. APEL supplies process and hood-off gas connections, compressed air, vacuum, water and power. We also have air and water discharge permits, a waste storage permit and a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 research and development permit.

New business startups, companies developing new products, entrepreneurs, university and national laboratory research staff and vendors demonstrating new technologies are all housed in the various spaces. There is opportunity for collaboration and cross-fertilization as well as security and access protection to protect proprietary material.
