CX-004177: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Waste Treatment Plant Secondary Waste Radioactive Bench-Scale Steam Reformer (Module A)
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Date: 09/23/2010
Location(s): Aiken, South Carolina
Office(s): Environmental Management, Savannah River Operations Office

This work (Module A) involves performing the fluidized bed steam reforming (FBSR) process on caustic Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF) Offgas Condensate Tank (OGCT) in Savannah River National Laboratory High Level Caves, A-block. The DWPF OGCT radioactive condensate is being used to mimic a proposed Hanford Waste Treatment Plant Secondary Waste (WTP-SW) stream. Approximately 700 milliliters (mL) of caustic, concentrated OGCT will be fed to the process over the course of 7 individual 100-mL runs. This project will be conducted under a Hazardous Treatability Study.
