  • This paper describes the development of a Waste Information Management System (WMIS) to support the waste designation, transportation, and disposal processes used by Washington Closure Hanford, LLC to support cleanup of the Columbia River Corridor. This waste, primarily consisting of remediated burial sites and building demolition debris, is disposed at the Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility (ERDF), which is located in the center of the Hanford Site (an approximately 1460 square kilometers site). WMIS uses a combination of bar-code scanning, hand-held computers, and strategic employment of a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag system to track each waste shipment from waste generationmore » to disposal.

  • In the current economic climate and for the foreseeable future, resource policy (especially with respect to energy consumption) has the potential to make a profound impact upon the economic life of our communities. Energy and economic policies should be viewed as catalysts that can help a community - and ultimately a state, or even a nation - achieve larger societal goals such as enhanced employment opportunities. To achieve this potential, we must divorce ourselves from unproductive past concepts and understand the inherent constraints associated with resource utilization to better work them to the advantage of the community. The key elementmore » here is to ensure that community economic goals shape the policymaking process. Without such considerations neither communities nor their respective nations will be able to offset fully the growing economic burden imposed by restrictions arising from a ''business-as-usual'' approach to resource utilization.« less
  • Load control of domestic water heaters is a well known demand side management activity. A model capable of simulating the effect of various control parameters which affect the control strategy is presented in this paper. These parameters include the tariff structure, the number of control blocks, the maximum demand set point and the maximum duration for which any block may be switched off continuously. The simulation results pointed out some negative effects that may occur when control parameters are not set properly. One example is the risk of moving the peak load upon the introduction of a time-of-use tariff withoutmore » a financial incentive to avoid cold-load pickup.« less
  • The Department of Energy, Office of Security Evaluations (DOE/OSE) is in the process of enhancing its inspection and evaluation programs in order to improve their effectiveness. The overall goal is to enhance the ability of OSE to make positive and gradual impacts on DOE's efforts to maintain and improve security at its nuclear facilities. This goal will be met by developing inspection and evaluation procedures that provide thorough, realistic, and unbiased judgments during inspections; produce reliable and rational inspection and evaluation results; are acceptable throughout DOE; and are defensible to criticism. These inspection and evaluation procedures will eventually result inmore » inspections that will more realistically stress the safeguards and physical security at a site based on the accepted standards for that site. Underlying the approach for developing the inspection and evaluation procedures is an information system that will be used for the Information Resource Management (IRM) required to plan, conduct, and report inspections, and to perform evaluations. In addition, the information system will be used to archive inspection and evaluation inputs as ''lessons learned'' examples and to provide input to training inspectors.« less
