BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A Utah-based nuclear services company has been awarded a contract from Battelle Energy Alliance, to manage waste from Battelle's lab operations at the Idaho National Laboratory in eastern Idaho.

EnergySolutions, of Salt Lake City, will treat, package and transport radioactive, hazardous and industrial waste from several INL facilities, including the Advanced Test Reactor site and the Materials and Fuels Complex.

Company spokesman Mark Walker says the $19 million contract will run for five years, with work beginning this summer. Approximately 20 workers will be employed under the contract.
