NRC Inspection of Metropolis, IL Facility (2004)

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) inspected the Honeywell Specialty Chemicals facility in Metropolis, Illinois, after the release of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) in December 2003. The inspection identified two apparent violations involving the reconfiguration of the fluorination system without detailed instructions and the company’s emergency response to the UF6 release. According to the NRC, a civil penalty of $12,000 per violation was “seriously considered,” but due to the corrective actions Honeywell took to address these issues, the NRC decided not to impose a civil penalty.
