Arthur D. Little Co.
Also Known As: Merrill Co., A.D. Little Co.
Location: San Francisco
Time Period: AWE 1948-1956; Residual Radiation 1957-1977
Facility Type: Atomic Weapons Employer
Facility Description: Under contract to the Atomic Energy Commission from 1948-1956, initially as the Merrill Company, A.D. Little researched the separation and recovery of uranium from various ores. Specific work included the recovery of uranium and vanadium from alkaline carbonate leach solutions from domestic ores.
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
The Merrill Company had R&D contracts for the separation and recovery of uranium from various ores and the concentration and upgrading of the uranium product. The contracts ran from 1948 through 1956 and included AT(49-6)-923, AT(49-l)-439, and AT(49-1)-540. Specific researchincluded recovery of uranium and vanadium from alkaline carbonate, leach solutions of domestic ores.
The facility was torn down as part of San Francisco’s redevelopment program. A 5,000,000-square-foot complex called the Embarcardero Center now occupies the land.
In the 1948 through 1956 period, the Merrill Company was located, at 582 Market Street, San Francisco (the laboratory may have been located at 322 Battery Street). Some type of relationship between this company’ and A.D. Little prevailed after May 1954, with former Merrill employees working for Little. The site was visited by DOE and Argonne National Laboratory in December of 1977. The visit confirmed that no additional survey effort was required.
Arthur D. Little Co. is listed as an Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) under the EEOICPA.
