Chem Nuclear – a trusted name in the Barnwell community.


Danny Black, Southern Carolina Alliance

Danny BlackThe six counties in the Southern Carolina Regional Development Alliance are proud to help our state and country become energy independent. We must stop relying upon other countries—many of which hate us—for our energy needs. Nuclear power is an essential part of energy independence.

For more than 40 years, Chem Nuclear in Barnwell County has been a vital part of America’s nuclear strategy. It’s where low-level radioactive waste is stored. Not only does it serve nuclear power plants (South Carolina is one of the nation’s leaders in the use of nuclear power), but it also receives low-level waste from other important disciplines such as manufacturing, medical diagnosis, cancer therapy and scientific research.

Chem Nuclear is a vital part of our community. We are glad they are our neighbors.
