    PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP: Decision-making Tool for Waste Disposal

    New in 2019 is a Pre-Conference Workshop! Add-on this exciting new pre-conference workshop to your registration during online registration.

    Representatives from the Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (EM), prime contractors, and commercial waste repositories are working to develop a methodology for determining on-site versus off-site costs associated with packaging, transportation, and disposal for EM generated wastes. The methodology can provide DOE and its prime contractors with a tool that facilitates or enhances decision-making for disposition of low-level and mixed low-level waste streams using either on-site or off-site disposal capabilities (or a combination). The Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG) Waste Management Working Group (WMWG) has been tasked with development of this template/model. Members of WMWG will discuss their scope, progress, and path forward. This workshop requires separate, add on registration.
