Kurion Snags Exec From DOE

Irvine-based nuclear waste processing technology developer Kurion announced today that it has named David Brockman as its Deputy Chief Operating Officer. According to Kurion, Brockman will lead operations at its Technology Development Center in Richland, Washington, which is working on vitrification technology for encapsulating nuclear waste. Brockman joins from the Department of Energy, where he had been responsible for the clean up at Hanford, the contaminated former nuclear bomb and reactor site in Washington. Kurion said Brockman will work closely with the DOE to see how Kurion might help the department achieve clean up goals at the site. Hanford is considered the most contaminated nuclear site in the United States.
