Abstract. There are two major regulatory approval milestones necessary in order to commence disposal operations for remote-handled transuranic (RH TRU) waste at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP)-the RH TRU hazardous waste permit modification request [1] and the radiological characterization plan [2].

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is a deep underground mined repository, in southeastern New Mexico, for the disposal of transuranic waste resulting from the nation's defense program. Transuranic waste mainly consists of contaminated, mainly with plutonium, protective clothing, rags, old tools and equipment, pieces of dismantled buildings.

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is operating under a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Hazardous Waste Facility Permit (HWFP). The Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking authorization to dispose of 3, cubic meters of remote-handled transuranic (RH-TRU) waste in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), a geologic repository located near Carlsbad, New Mexico.

The WIPP is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED). Introduction. On Octothe NMED issued a final decision to grant a Hazardous Waste Facility Permit to the US Department of Energy (DOE) for the storage and disposal of transuranic mixed waste.

DOE mixed transuranic waste (MTRU) is waste that has a hazardous component and radioactive elements heavier than uranium. Since shipments began ino. Transuranic waste is officially defined as waste contaminated with alpha-emitting radionuclides having atomic numbers greater than 92 and with half-lives greater than 20 years and in concentrations greater than nanocuries per gram of waste.

Transuranic waste isotopes remain radioactive for a long period of time and must, therefore, be. This waste is intended for disposal at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico.

In accordance with the WIPP Compliance Criteria, EPA evaluated the characterization of RH TRU debris waste from BAPL-CCP during a series of four inspections, most recently conducted on AprilThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the availability of, and soliciting public comments for 45 days on, the proposed approval of the radioactive, remote-handled (RH), transuranic (TRU) waste characterization program implemented by the Central Characterization Project (CCP) at.
