Final Vitrification Melter And Vessels Evaluation Documentation

DOE has prepared final evaluations and made waste incidental to reprocessing determinations for the vitrification melter and feed vessels (the concentrator feed makeup tank and the melter feed hold tank), used by DOE’s West Valley Demonstration Project as part of the process to vitrify waste from prior commercial reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. To add transparency, DOE issued draft evaluations for review and comment by the public, the states and the Seneca Nation of Indians; simultaneously, DOE consulted with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). DOE prepared the final evaluations and made the waste incidental to reprocessing determinations after consideration of NRC and public comments on the draft evaluations. The final evaluations, determinations and responses to public comments can be accessed by following the links provided here.
