Title: Buried waste integrated demonstration fiscal year 1992 close-out report

Abstract

The mission of the Buried Waste Integrated Demonstration Program (BWID) is to support the development and demonstration of a suite of technologies that when integrated with commercially-available baseline technologies form a comprehensive remediation system for the effective and efficient remediation of buried waste disposed of throughout the US Department of Energy complex. To accomplish this mission of identifying technological solutions for remediation deficiencies, the Office of Technology Development initiated the BWID at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory in fiscal year (FY)-91. This report summarizes the activities of the BWID Program during FY-92.

  • The mission of the Buried Waste Integrated Demonstration Program (BWID) is to support the development and demonstration of a suite of technologies that when integrated with commercially-available baseline technologies form a comprehensive remediation system for the effective and efficient remediation of buried waste disposed of throughout the US Department of Energy complex. To accomplish this mission of identifying technological solutions for remediation deficiencies, the Office of Technology Development initiated the BWID at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory in fiscal year (FY)-91. This report summarizes the activities of the BWID Program during FY-92.
  • The Buried Waste integrated Demonstration (BWID) supports the applied research, development, demonstration, and evaluation of a multitude of advanced technologies. These technologies are being integrated to form a comprehensive remediation system for the effective and efficient remediation of buried waste. These efforts are identified and coordinated in support of the US Department of Energy Environmental Restoration and Waste Management needs and objectives. BWID works with universities and private industry to develop these technologies, which are being transferred to the private sector for use nationally and internationally. A public participation policy has been established to provide stakeholders with timely and accuratemore » information and meaningful opportunities for involvement in the technology development and demonstration process. To accomplish this mission of identifying technological solutions for remediation deficiencies, the Department of Energy Office of Technology Development initiated BMD at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. This report summarizes the activities of the BWID program during Fiscal Year 1994. In Fiscal Year 1995, these activities are transitioning into the Landfill Stabilization Focus Area.« less

  • The work described in this report was conducted by Pacific Northwest Laboratory to provide information to the Buried Waste Integrated Demonstration (BWID) program. The information in this report is intended to provide a complex-wide planning base for th.e BWID to ensure that BWID activities are appropriately focused to address the range of remediation problems existing across the US Department of Energy (DOE) complex. This report contains information characterizing the 2.1 million m{sup 3} of buried and stored wastes and their associated sites at six major DOE facilities. Approximately 85% of this waste is low-level waste, with about 12% TRU ormore » TRU mixed waste; the remaining 3% is low-level mixed waste. In addition, the report describes soil contamination sites across the complex. Some of the details that would be useful in further characterizing the buried wastes and contaminated soil sites across the DOE complex are either unavailable or difficult to locate. Several options for accessing this information and/or improving the information that is available are identified in the report. This document is a companion to Technology Needs for Remediation: Hanford and Other DOE Sites, PNL-8328 (Stapp 1993).« less
  • This document describes the Waste Tank Safety, Operations, and Remediation (WT) Organization strategy for safe operation of the Hanford Site Tank Farms. This document discusses the WT Organization mission and vision for the next 10 yr. This includes the challenges, the strategies to meet them, and a descriptive schedule for achieving these goals. An initial work breakdown structure (WBS) is described which will be the strategy implementation tool during fiscal year (FY) 1992 to accomplish the vision. The WT Organization is responsible for the operating and maintenance of the Hanford Site waste tanks and associated support facilities. The WT missionmore » is: Manage the Hanford Site waste tanks in a safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible manner in compliance with codes, standards, and regulatory requirements. Through evaluation, mitigation/remediation, and verification ensure that the contents of Hanford`s 177 large underground waste storage tanks are safely stored until they can be disposed. The WT Program was created to operate the Hanford Site Tank Farms and to resolve waste tank safety issues in a timely and cost effective manner. Once the safety issues are resolved and mitigation/remediation actions are implemented, the WT Organization will transition itself into a more traditionally operational-based division.« less
