  • As the Department of Energy`s nuclear weapon`s complex shrinks, concern regarding the proliferation of nuclear weapons technology through the release of export-controlled equipment, materials and information has come to the fore. In November, 1994 Under Secretary Charles Curtis issued new guidelines on export control and nonproliferation. The new policies and procedures are designed to help Department of Energy Headquarters Offices, Operations Offices, Area Offices, laboratories and contractors implement a consistent and technologically sound policy regarding DOE transfers of unclassified equipment, materials and information that could adversely affect US nuclear nonproliferation objectives or national security. The DOE Export Control Division hasmore » developed a multi-faceted program of guidelines and training materials to sensitize DOE and DOE-contractors to their responsibilities and to teach them how to evaluate the proliferation risks of their activities.« less
  • Correlation tables are the linchpins between the customs codes used to classify commodities in international trade and the control lists used for strategic trade control (STC) purposes. While understanding the customs classification system can help the STC community better understand strategic trade flows, better identify which trade operations require permits, and more effectively detect illegal exports, the two systems are different in scope, philosophy, content, and objectives. Many indications point to the limitations of these correlation tables, and it is important to understand the nature of the limitations and the complex underlying reasons to conceive possible improvements. As part ofmore » its Strategic Trade and Supply Chain Analytics Initiative, Argonne National Laboratory supported a study of a subset of the European Union’s TARIC correlation table. The study included development of a methodology and an approach to rating the quality and relevance of individual correlations. The study was intended as a first step to engage the STC community in deflections and initiatives to improve the conception and use of correlations, and its conclusions illustrate the scope and complex nature of the challenges to overcome. This paper presents the two classification systems, analyzes the needs for correlation tables and the complex challenges associated with them, summarizes key findings, and proposes possible ways forward.« less

  • Overview: This was the ninth in a series of workshops that have evolved to conference status addressing Diesel Engine Emissions Reduction (DEER) technology. The initial three workshops were held biannually at the University of California, San Diego. Thereafter, as we alternated yearly between the sites Castine, Maine and Portsmouth, Virginia on the East Coast and San Diego on the West Coast, the workshops grew to conference status. This year we held the 9th DEER Conference, August 24 - 28, 2003, at the Newport Marriott in Newport, Rhode Island, in the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) area. Wemore » had two objectives for DEER 2003: 1. To provide a forum to present transportation diesel engine developments and issues for the federal and state organizations involved with diesel engines as users, regulators, or supporters of research and development with the diesel engine manufacturers, their suppliers, the national laboratories, academia, human health effects, and the environmentally concerned public sector. 2. To make available European and U.S. personal-use diesel engine powered vehicles at our "Ride and Drive" for attendees and the press to see for themselves how far diesel engine technology had advanced. European diesel auto sales are rapidly approaching 50% of sales; and in France, 73% of luxury class vehicle buyers chose the diesel option. Banks Engineering and Cummins exhibited the "Sidewinder", a modified pick-up truck with a production in-line 6 cylinder Cummins B engine upgraded from 300 HP to more than 600 HP. This truck was officially clocked at the Bonneville test track at 222.139 mph. As a comparison, the $800,000 Ferrari Enzo, which is built to Formula 1 racing standards, has a projected top speed of 218 mph with its 12 cylinder gasoline engine. One can only imagine what the Ferrari Enzo could do fitted with a current technology diesel engine! Some of the highlights at DEER 2003 included the presentations by high-level managers at BMW and Mercedes Benz on their diesel engine development. Aaqius & Aaqius presented data and an exhibit of the latest PSA Peugeot fuel bound catalyst diesel particulate trap system. Cummins presented data regarding their compliance with EPA's Tier 2, Bin 5 standards on their V- 6, which was developed with DOE support. This was the first report of meeting these standards. Their next step is achieving durability. Caterpillar reported single cylinder engine steady-state tests of their HCCI injector that had engine out NOx levels under Tier 2, Bin 5. Two new approaches to particulate traps were reported by Accentus using non-thermal plasma and the University of Manchester's electrostatic precipitators. A Health Effects Session focused on U.S. and European testing of emissions from diesel and CNG buses. This session highlighted the need to use oxidation catalysts to reduce formaldehyde from CNG bus exhaust as CARB and Swedish testing indicated. A worthwhile dialogue was held with the Environmentalists Panel, which was organized and moderated by NESCAUM. The area that will produce the largest improvements in diesel engine efficiency will be the effective use of the roughly 60% of the energy in fuel that ends up as heat loss. Progress on the waste heat recovery using electric turbocompounding and thermoelectrics was reported. Quantum well confinement thermoelectrics investigators are reporting small specimens with a 400% increase in efficiency compared with current art bulk semiconductor thermoelectrics devices! Investigators of the electric turbocompounding concept for both light-truck and heavytruck applications are sorting out the problems with a commercial motor/alternators installed on the turbocharger shaft for both light- and heavy-duty trucks. These are but a few of the advances reported at DEER 2003. We were very fortunate to have such an outstanding group of presentations. We are planning to have DEER 2004 in San Diego,Coronado, actually,in August 2004. Hope to see you there! John Fairbanks Chair, DEER 2003« less
  • Three basic US laws regulate the export of commodities, services, and technical data. People working in nuclear fields need to know of these laws and their impact on professional endeavors. Export of technical data means the communication of any information by oral, written, or any other means to foreign nationals within or outside the US. The medium for the communication may be a model, blueprint, sketch, or any other device that can convey information. If the data relates to items on one of the control lists, a license must be sought from the appropriated federal agency. The Militarily Critical Technologiesmore » List (MCTL), though not itself a control list, plays a major role in determining what technical data will require a validated license. The US Department of Energy (DOE), through Technical Working Gorup (TWG) 11, is responsible for the Nuclear Technology chapter of the MCTL. TWG 11 also prepares the Nuclear Technology Reference Book (NTRB), a classified guide to sensitive nuclear technology.« less
