  • Analyses of environmental samples of known homogeneity by different laboratories often disagree seriously. Discrepant data may result from poor methodology, improper instrument calibration, faulty experimental techniques, or from a combination of these factors. One approach towards obtaining accurate data is through the use of Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) issued by the National Bureau of Standards under federal statutes. SRMs are homogeneous, stable materials with certified chemical or physical properties, and are used in calibrating instruments, validating laboratory data, development methods of known accuracy, and referring data from different laboratories to a common base. Of the approximately 900 SRMs listed inmore » the current SRM catalog, over 90 have been developed for use in improving the accuracy of environmental analyses. Environmental matrix SRMs certified for priority pollutants include gases, atmospheric dust, water, sediments, biological materials, and fuels. In addition, calibrator solutions of organic priority pollutants, such as halocarbons, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are available for determining instrumental response factors, and adding accurate amounts of these compounds to samples. 18 references, 2 tables.« less
  • Immobilization of high-level defense production wastes is an important step in environmental restoration. Currently, the best available technology for immobilization of this waste is by incorporation into borosilicate glass, i.e., vitrification. Three US sites are active in the design, construction, or operation of vitrification facilities. The status, facility description, and quality assurance development for each facility was presented at the 1989 Energy Division Conference (ASQC 1989). This paper presents the developments since that time. The West Valley Demonstration Project in northwestern New York State has demonstrated the technology; the Defense Waste Processing Facility at the Savannah River Site in Southmore » Carolina as completed design, construction is essentially complete, and preparation for operation is underway; and the Hanford Waste Vitrification Plant in Washington State is in initial Detailed Design. 5 refs.« less
