PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report summarizes a joint venture between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Deactivation and Decommissioning Focus Area and the Oak Ridge Operations Assets Utilization (AU) Facilities and Materials Reuse Division (FMRD) in its role as the DOE National Center of Excellence for Metals Recycle (NMR), to better address problems in the DOE complex. This task was initially developed to meet a request from the Richland Operations Office (RL) to AU FMRD for assistance in analyzing equipment reuse and metals recycling opportunities at RL, utilizing expertise and experience related to life cycle analysis (LCA), technology, and planning.

Description

This report summarizes a joint venture between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Deactivation and Decommissioning Focus Area and the Oak Ridge Operations Assets Utilization (AU) Facilities and Materials Reuse Division (FMRD) in its role as the DOE National Center of Excellence for Metals Recycle (NMR), to better address problems in the DOE complex. This task was initially developed to meet a request from the Richland Operations Office (RL) to AU FMRD for assistance in analyzing equipment reuse and metals recycling opportunities at RL, utilizing expertise and experience related to life cycle analysis (LCA), technology, and planning. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has developed an LCA system to assist DOE in identifying and analyzing opportunities for equipment and materials reuse and recycle. This report presents the use of the LCA system to identify and analyze methods for disposition of surplus railcars at the Hanford site. Alternative possible disposition pathways were evaluated for their financial, health and safety, environmental, programmatic, and institutional impacts; and a preferred disposition pathway was identified.
