Title: Hydrogen control in the handling, shipping and storage of wet radioactive waste

Abstract

This document is intended to convey the pertinent information concerning the handling and shipping of wet radioactive wastes which resulted (lessons learned) from the TMI-2 experience. It provides engineering tools, procedures, and precautions that are intended to ensure the safe handling, shipping and storage of wet radioactive wastes. A stepwise procedure is presented that permits the individual investigator to evaluate the potential for flammable gas generation, and to minimize potential hazards, with the intent of meeting the referenced NRC requirements. The chapter on catalytic recombiners is revised.
