A detailed study has been made of the radiological hazards associated with
operation of the ICPP Waste Calcining Facility. In addition to the normal release
of small amounts of radioactivity with the process off.-gas, possible accidental
releases of larger amounts of radioactivity through operational error or equip-
ment failure have been examined. Bypassing of off--gas cleaning elements,
uncontrolled chemical reactions, overheating by fission product heat, corrosion,
abrasion, vibration, overpressure, utility failures, and major catastrophes
have been studied as possible causes of accidental radioactivity releases. No
major safety deficiencies have been found, and the facility appears satisfactory
for processing of high-level radioactive wastes. Details of the safety analysis
and extensive information on the process, equipment, and operation procedures
are furnished in the report.
Here’s what’s next.
