The existing thermally treatable, radioactive mixed waste inventory is characterized to
support implementation of the commercial, thermal treatment contract. The existing
thermally treatable waste inventory has been identified using a decision matrix developed by
Josephson et at. (1996). Similar to earlier waste characterization reports (Place 1993 and
1994), hazardous materials, radionuclides, physical properties, and waste container data are
statistically analyzed. In addition, the waste inventory data is analyzed to correlate waste
constituent data that are important to the implementation of the commercial thermal treatment
contract for obtaining permits and for process design. The specific waste parameters, which
were analyzed, include the following: "dose equivalent" curie content, polychlorinated
biphenyl (PCB) content, identification of containers with PA-related mobile radionuclides
(14C, 129I, 7"Se, "Tc, and U isotopes), tritium content, debris and non-debris content,
container free liquid content, fissile isotope content, identification of dangerous waste codes,
asbestos containers, high mercury containers, beryllium dust containers, lead containers,
overall waste quantities, analysis of container types, and an estimate of the waste
compositional split based on the thermal treatment contractor's proposed process.
A qualitative description of the thermally treatable mixed waste inventory is also provided.
