DOE, in cooperation with the Energy Communities Alliance and the Energy Facility Contractors Group, held the first DOE National Cleanup Workshop on Sept. 29 & 30, 2015, in the Washington, D.C. area.
The workshop brought together senior DOE executives, officials from DOE sites, industry executives, and other stakeholders to discuss EM’s progress in the cleanup of the environmental legacy of the nation’s Manhattan Project and Cold War nuclear weapons program.
The workshop focused on major cleanup successes planned for the next two years, contract and project management improvement, efforts to develop new cleanup technologies, and more.
