Title: Decommissioning a nuclear fuel reprocessing support facility

Abstract

Lessons learned during decontamination and dismantling of a plutonium nitrate loadout facility, highly contaminated with transuranics, suggest the development of improved design features for future nuclear fuel reprocessing plants. Part of the Hanford Redox Plant, the 233-S Building contains systems formerly used for the final purification and concentration of plutonium solutions. Specific design ideas stem from experiences in decontamination and dismantling of the 233-S Product Removal Can Loadout Facility (Loadout Hood). These ideas could influence the magnitude of future decommissioning projects.
