The U.S. faces a growing demand for scientists trained and educated in radiochemistry, the chemical study of radioactive elements. With that in mind, the Energy Department's offices of Nuclear Energy (NE) and Environmental Management (EM) are co-funding a new traineeship program in radiochemistry at Washington State University (WSU) in Pullman.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Managers from EM field offices and cleanup contractors across the DOE cleanup program are set to take part in the 2016 National Cleanup Workshop, scheduled to be held on Sept. 14-15, 2016, at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Va.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – About 100 EM employees from across the complex gathered for a meaningful exchange that focused on continuous improvements in planning and executing the cleanup program’s contracts and projects at an annual workshop this month.
AIKEN, S.C. - EM celebrated another milestone in the cleanup of radioactive liquid waste stored at the Savannah River Site (SRS) with a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Salt Waste Processing Facility (SWPF).
WEST VALLEY, N.Y. – It has been 20 years since a human has been allowed in the Vitrification Cell at EM’s West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP), where past operations involved solidifying liquid high-level radioactive waste.
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Shirley Perez may be the most excited person ready to get her hands on new robotic arms when they are installed in the EM Idaho Site’s Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project (AMWTP) boxlines this fall.
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Several recommendations from technical experts who attended a Chemistry Summit in January and a Fluidized Bed Workshop in April have been incorporated into EM’s Idaho Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU), and based on a recent simulated waste treatment test, the results look promising.
