Classifying Radioactive Tank Waste
Tank Waste Classification Approaches1
|Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation||2005 NDAA Section 3116||HLW Interpretation|
|Key Technical Criteria|
|Examples of Application|
1A fourth approach is Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) citation under DOE Manual 435.1-1, Radioactive Waste Management Manual, Chapter II, Section B.(1). This approach is not shown in the table. It allows a limited number of secondary solid waste items to be excluded from HLW (e.g., contaminated clothing, tools, and equipment).
2For the Idaho Site and SRS, the WIR evaluation approach applies to tank waste that is transported from Idaho and South Carolina, respectively; 2005 NDAA Section 3116 applies when tank waste at these two sites is disposed in-state.
