Title: NUCON Vapor Abatement Unit Performance on Hanford Tank Farm Chemicals of Potential Concern

Abstract

This report provided the results and methods used in the NUCON Vapor Abatement Unit performance testing. The purpose of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) testing was to assess the performance of the NUCON International, Inc., Vapor Abatement Unit (VAU) prototype for the reduction of Hanford Tank Farm vapors associated chemicals of potential concern (COPC). The testing was conducted in compliance with the PNNL Assessment of NUCON Vapor Abatement Unit for Single-Shell Tank (SST) Farm Off-Gas Chemicals of Potential Concern (COPCs) test plan. Performance testing started on May 4, 2018 and continued through June 13, 2018. Eleven (11) COPCs were chosen for testing out of the 61 identified COPCs. The COPCs were chosen either due to the importance of that COPC measured in Hanford high-level waste single-shell tank (SST) vapor emissions, as a surrogate to represent a class of COPC compounds, or both. Results of the performance tests are included.
