  • To support the operator remote handling a number of well-developed techniques is available like transmission of forces, movements, and dexterous skills in general using masterslave manipulators equipped with special tools. In addition several types of transporters are available to position manipulators and tools. But there is a serious bottle-neck in viewing: the number of cameras is restricted and the cameras may in most cases not be positioned as to provide sufficient information. In order to improve this situation an integration of closed-loop TV and artificial viewing by sensor controlled computer graphics has been introduced successfully by KfK at JET. Thismore » integrated viewing subsystem combines not only those two techniques by providing the two views but also enhances the conventional camera control by a computer graphics model-based control. Practical experience has shown that the concept of viewing needs to be extended. Just seeing where things are is insufficient for the operators to perform their remote handling task properly. More information is required about the status of all equipment pieces involved and about the status of the entire handling task. Viewing for remote handling applications needs to include the display of such status information in a suitable form.« less
  • Developing a complete, well-executed toxic emissions inventory (TEI) is of key importance in meeting regulatory requirements, maintaining good public relations, and minimizing annual emissions fees. Indeed, more frequent and more accurate TEIs are rapidly becoming the growing trend among industrial firms nationwide. Proper planning is needed before conducting a TEI in order to assure that it is accurate, complete, and suitable for future information needs. The first step is to define all TEI objectives that apply to the facility. Next, the information is gathered through records reviews, personnel interviews, and a plant-wide survey. Once the information is gathered, emissions estimatesmore » are prepared. After all inventory data have been gathered and emissions estimates have been computed, the data must be sorted and presented. Spreadsheets and databases should be considered for this purpose. Organizing inventory calculations through spreadsheets with built-in calculations facilitates emissions estimates for similar sources. Database storage of the data allows for manipulations to generate reports and graphs as needed. Once the spreadsheet or database storage system is in place, the plant can input the data throughout the year and eliminate redundant data entry. A continuously updated inventory minimizes annual TEI reporting chores and provides a valuable tool for reviewing emissions reduction programs and analyzing historical trends in emissions data.« less
  • The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) amended the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Waste Management Program: Treatment and Storage ofTransuranic Waste to centralize transuranic (TRU) waste characterization/certification from fourteen TRU waste sites. This centralization will allow for treatment, characterization and certification ofTRU waste from the fourteen sites, thirteen of which are sites with small quantities ofTRU waste, at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) prior to shipping the waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) for disposal. Centralization ofthis TRU waste will avoid the cost ofbuilding treatment, characterization, certification, and shipping capabilities at each ofthe small quantity sites thatmore » currently do not have existing facilities. Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project (AMWTP) and Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC) will provide centralized shipping facilities, to WIPP, for all ofthe small quantity sites. Hanford, the one large quantity site identified in the ROD, has a large number ofwaste in containers that are overpacked into larger containers which are inefficient for shipment to and disposal at WIPP. The AMWTP at the INL will reduce the volume ofmuch of the CH waste and make it much more efficient to ship and dispose of at WIPP. In addition, the INTEC has a certified remote handled (RH) TRU waste characterization/certification program at INL to disposition TRU waste from the sites identified in the ROD.« less
