Title: Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF) Glycolate Mitigation: Scoping Test Results

Abstract

A series of initial reactions were performed at SRNL with the goal of arriving at a general understanding of the conditions required to destroy glycolate. A simulant solution representing a composite of the Recycle Condensate Tank (RCT), the Slurry Mix Evaporator Condensate Tank (SMECT), and/or the Off-Gas Condensate Tank (OGCT) was prepared. Two oxidizers were used, hydrogen peroxide and sodium permanganate. Ten tests and a cont rol reaction were performed. The temperature was not controlled, but remained in the range o f 18-21 °C. The initial glycolate concentrations were nominally either 250 or 2000 ppm. The test volume was 500 mL and stirring was provided by a magnetic stirrer.
