CX-007504: Categorical Exclusion Determination

300 Area Nanoscale Research and Development Projects
CX(s) Applied: B3.15, A9, B3.6
Date: 12/06/2011
Location(s): Washington
Offices(s): River Protection-Richland Operations Office

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) proposes to (1) conduct indoor small-scale research and development projects using nanoscale materials; (2) carry out pilot-scale projects using nanoscale materials; (3) complete minor modifications of existing laboratory rooms to support projects using nanoscale materials in the 300 Area. Activities involving nanoscale materials include, but are not limited to 1) nanoscale capabilities to design surfaces, interfaces, and thin films for selective chemical and physical properties 2) nanoscience and nanotechnology, including condensed phase and interfacial chemical physics, oxide surface science, catalysis and chemical transformation 3) minor modifications to rooms, equipment, and instrumentation in direct support of laboratory operations associated with the use of nanoscale materials. These activities would take place at multiple indoor laboratories in the 331, 318, 325, and 350 Buildings in 2011 and 2012. The CX will be reevaluated in 2013.
