Containment for Landfills Jennifer Nelson, Tom Burford, Steve Dwyer, Brian Dwyer --- Sandia Ntl. Labs., PO Box 5800, MS 0719, Albuquerque, NM 87185-0719, (email@example.com)
- Technologies that can be integrated into new or existing landfill¨ closures to contain contaminant migration in arid environments are¨ evaluated. They include cover demonstrations, design criteria for¨ covers, an in-situ membrane monitoring system, subsurface barrier¨ emplacements and monitoring to verify that barrier integrity is¨ highlighted.
Development of New Technologies for Remediation of DoE Radioactive Waste Landfills George Schneider --- US DoE Idaho Operations Office, 850 Energy Dr., MS 1219, Idaho Falls, ID 83402 , (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- The US has 3.1 million cubic meters of buried waste and even more in¨ contaminated soils that must be remediated. THe DoE has implemented¨ a system analysis-based methodology to identify specific needs and¨ performance requirements, such as cost and risk, for new¨ technologies to guide their selection and development.
Real-World Applications Bridging Developers & Users Paul J. Pettit, Sharon Fauver, Rod Warner --- FERMCO, MS81-2, PO Box 538704, Cincinnati, OH 45253 ,
- Described are details of the processes used for cooperation between¨ stakeholders, regulators, developers of technology and users engaged¨ in the pursuit of accelerated remediation.
