Waterjet and abrasive blasting techniques has been used for decontaminating metals. The use of both techniques can pose environmental problems because the cleaning process created additional waste. The fiber-optic laser technology resulted from a collaboration between INEEL (Idaho National Environmental and Engineering Laboratory) scientists and researchers at another Department of Energy facility, Ames Laboratory in Ames, Iowa.
