Summary The Department of Energy has a problem: what to do with millions of tons of radioactive metal. Progressive finds that the DEO plans to let scrap companies collect the medal, try to take the radioactivity out and sell the metal to foundries. Ultimately, the metal could be used for everyday household products: pots, pans, forks, spoons, even your eyeglasses.
