Title: THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY-OFFICE OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT’S INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) has collaborated with the various international institutes (e.g. Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency – Rosatom and Ukraine government’s Chornobyl Center-International Radioecology Laboratory (CC-IRL)) for many years on radioactive waste management challenges of mutual concern. Currently, EM is cooperating with Rosatom and the Ukraine’s CC-IRL to explore issues related to high-level waste and to investigate experience and technologies that could support EM site cleanup needs. EM is currently implementing five collaborative projects with other international institutes on nuclear waste issues: • Application of the Cold Crucible Induction Heated Melter to DOE Wastes; SIA Radon, Moscow. • Design Improvements to the Cold Crucible Induction Heated Melter; Electrotechnical University, St. Petersburg. • Improve Retention of Radionuclides in Cement Type Waste Forms; Khlopin Radium Institute, St. Petersburg. • Improved Solubility and Retention of Troublesome Components in SRS and Hanford HLW Glasses; Khlopin Radium Institute, St. Petersburg. • Long-term Impacts from Radiation / Contamination within the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, Chornobyl Center, International Radioecology Laboratory, Ukraine The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of EM’s objectives for participating in cooperative activities with various international institutes. Additionally, this paper presents programmatic and technicalmore » information on these activities, and outlines specific technical collaborations currently underway and planned to support DOE’s cleanup and closure mission.« less
