Session 76B - Disposition of DOE High Activity Mixed Waste - What Capacity Do We Really Need

This panel focused on the disposition of DOE high activity mixed waste. The US DOE sites have the bulk of the inventory of 10-100nCi/g alpha mixed waste that was formerly managed as TRU but will not be headed for WIPP. It must now be treated to meet LDR requirements and be disposed of at the DOE Nevada Test Site. The NTS has a window of opportunity for the disposition of these mixed waste streams that will close in December of 2010. Identification, characterization and treatment to meet LDR standards prior to certification and shipment are time consuming and costly with shipments to date falling far short of what is required. When the window is closed what options could be and/or should be pursued to assure continued access for future disposition of mixed B/C waste inventories from DOE and to a lesser extent from the commercial sector?
