The B Plant Reprocessing Canyon
This was the world's fist large-scale reprocessing facility. It chopped up irradiated fuel rods form the Hanford B-Reactor, dissolved them in acid, and recovered their plutonium for use in the Nagasaki bomb. Today the B Plant houses the Waste Encapsulation Storage Facility, which packages cesium-137 in metal capsules for use in America's commercial food irradiation industry. 200 W Area, Hanford Reservation, Richland, Washington. November 15, 1984.

Great picture, unfortunately that is NOT B-Plant, but is instead U-Plant. The design is the same, but B-Plant doesn't have the UO3 plant behind it like U-Plant.

And T-plant was the first Large scale plant, not B or U. B plant is in 200 East and T-plant is in 200 West.
