The NNSA and DOE's Oak Ridge Office of EM, along with their major contractors CNS and UCOR, recently collaborated to recycle excavated soil resulting in cost savings for two active projects.
DOE announced the selection of Sue Cange as the manager of the Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (EM). Previously, Cange served as the acting manager of EM’s Oak Ridge Office since May 2014, and she has served as the deputy manager since March 2011.
In 2014, Oak Ridge’s EM program made significant advancements toward achieving its Vision 2016 by finishing the K-25 Building Demolition Project and beginning the K-31 Building Demolition Project. This vision involves removing all of the gaseous diffusion uranium enrichment facilities at ETTP, one of the most complex aspects of cleanup, by 2016.
OREM is seeking volunteers to fill vacancies on the Oak Ridge Site Specific Advisory Board. Applications are due by Dec. 31.
OREM began demolition of the K-31 Building at the East Tennessee Technology Park, marking the removal of the fourth of five gaseous diffusion buildings at the former uranium enrichment site.
