Title: Radioactive liquid waste generation goals at the ICPP

Abstract

Processes at ICPP generating hazardous radioactive liquid wastes (which are sent to the tank farm) include NWCF, PEW evaporator, LET&D, tank farm, fuel storage operations, etc. In May 1994, the INEL Radioactive Liquid Waste Management Plan was issued but not implemented. Waste generation goals have been reviewed and updated in this report (details are given in appendix). A meeting was held to determine the new waste generation goals and best approach to reaching them. Waste streams were individually analyzed in this meeting and several adjustments made both during the meeting and following the meeting. The information was adjusted and modeling completed to determine the waste reduction achieved (spreadsheets are included in appendix). Results of this update indicate that there has been a significant reduction in the waste generation goals from 2 years ago. If the updated baseline goals are met, a 35% waste reduction will be achieved; this coupled with increased calcination rate, will enable the waste in the tank farm to be processed by 2012; however a program is needed to ensure these waste goals are met. A monitoring and reporting function in conjunction with company level incentives will fill this need; a logic diagram of this monitoring programmore » is given.« less
