The Experimental Breeder Reactor-II (EBR-II) was a remarkable engineering achievement. RED, Inc. and its staff of communications professionals were fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Argonne National Laboratory and the project manager of EBR-II, Leonard Koch, to assist in writing, editing and producing (for publication) this first-hand account of the development, design, construction, and initial operation of the EBR-II facility.
The EBR-II reactor created by Professor Koch contained significant ideas and solutions, which are being successively used by scientists all over the world in the developments of the safest nuclear reactors: waste fuel is immediately recycled and re-delivered to the reactor. Professor Koch was the first to implement this mechanism in practice. This technology leads to safer nuclear energy for all mankind.
In 2004 Leonard J. Koch was granted the Global Energy International Energy Prize for physical-technical basis and development of fast reactors.

RED, Inc. Communications was contracted by Argonne National Laboratory to assist in preparing a historical overview of the EBR-II project. This involved working closely with Mr. Koch to take existing historical information not readily available or usable and provide a detailed historical publication that went beyond what was done and provided an account of why it was done.
RED, Inc. staff supported the entire document production process for this project, including
- Technical Writing / Editing - Researched historical documents, traveled to Mr. Koch to interview and understand his hand written accounts of the EBR-II project, worked closely with Mr. Koch as we prepared the text of the document to ensure accuracy of information, and provided final editing before publication.
- Graphic Design - Provided support in the clean-up of historical technical illustrations, and the scanning and clean-up of historical EBR-II project documentation and photographs.
- Desktop Publishing - Provided template design and development and layout of the final document for print, prepared table of contents, and incorporated editorial changes.
