Abstract: This report provides an alternative strategy evolved from the
current Hanford Site Tank Waste Remediation System (TWRS) programmatic
baseline for accomplishing the treatment and disposal of the Hanford
Site tank wastes. This optimized processing strategy performs the major
elements of the TWRS Program, but modifies the deployment of selected
treatment technologies to reduce the program cost. The present program
for development of waste retrieval, pretreatment, and vitrification
technologies continues, but the optimized processing strategy reuses a
single facility to accomplish the separations/low-activity waste (LAW)
vitrification and the high-level waste (HLW) vitrification processes
sequentially, thereby eliminating the need for a separate HLW
