Control (TRAMPAC) a separate document which contains all relevant appendices. It is
estimated that Revision 19 increases the amount of CH TRU waste that is shippable in
the TRUPACT-I1 by approximately 94%, assuming that the waste meets all other
In conjunction with Revision 19 of the TRUPACT-II Safety Analysis Report, the
automated TRUPACT-II Authorized Methods for Payload Control (eTRAMPAC), an
implementation tool for the Revision 19 initiatives, has been developed for site use. The
eTRAMPAC performs all compliance evaluations and generates necessary transportation
documentation for site use.
Proposed Optimization Strategies
Contact-Handled (CH) TRU Waste:
Strategies to optimize the waste shipments include:
" Ensuring cost-effective shipment of TRU waste that is currently not shippable
because of size, weight, gas generation rates, fissile gram equivalents, or dose
" Making improvements to the baseline transportation system to ensure
shipment under less restrictive more cost efficient, and optimal conditions.
Revision 20 to the TRUPACT-Il SAR was submitted to the NRC in November 2001.
This revision contains administrative changes.
