New analytical methods to minimize secondary waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The US Department of Energy (DOE) will require a large number of waste characterizations over a multi-year period to accomplish the Department`s goals in environmental restoration and waste management. Estimates vary, but two million analyses annually are expected. The waste generated by the analytical procedures used for characterizations is a significant source of new DOE waste. Success in reducing the volume of secondary waste and the costs of handling this waste would significantly decrease the overall cost of this DOE program. We have chosen to review the analytical procedures in three areas -- sample injection for inorganic analysis, dissolution of ... continued below

Success in reducing the volume of secondary waste and the costs of handling this waste would significantly decrease the overall cost of this DOE program. We have chosen to review the analytical procedures in three areas -- sample injection for inorganic analysis, dissolution of waste samples for radiochemical analysis, and sample preparation for analysis of organic constituents.
