Hanford Waste Treatment Plant Continues Progress Toward Commissioning

RICHLAND, Wash. – Workers at Hanford’s Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) recently completed startup testing on another significant plant system, the utility building that provides power to the plant’s Effluent Management Facility, pictured above. The system is one of many going through commissioning prior to starting low-activity tank waste treatment through the Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste (DFLAW) approach. This development at WTP supports one of EM's 2020 priorities: complete DFLAW construction turn-over to commissioning.
