Using 3D glasses, these researchers can see objects floating in air, and even walk around the objects, allowing them to observe simulations from all angles. | Photo by LeRoy Sanchez, LANL.

Since WIPP became operational in March 1999, it has surpassed receiving 11,000 shipments, which traveled over 14 million safe loaded miles over the nation’s highways through WIPP’s transportation program — equal to about 29 trips around the moon. WIPP has permanently disposed of more than 89,000 cubic meters of TRU waste — enough to fill more than 35 Olympic-size swimming pools. In 2013, WIPP is on course in support of the Los Alamos National Laboratory framework agreement with the State of New Mexico for complete removal of the above ground TRU waste stored at Area G by June 30, 2014. WIPP has cleaned 22 sites of legacy TRU waste.
Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, National Transuranic Program Have Banner Year in 2013

CARLSBAD, N.M. – EM’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), America’s only operating deep geologic repository for the permanent disposal of defense-related transuranic (TRU) waste, and the Carlsbad Field Office (CBFO) National TRU Program continued to be in the global spotlight with significant accomplishments throughout 2013.
