West Valley Demonstration Project
WEST VALLEY, NEW YORK
The Western New York Nuclear Service Center (WNYNSC) and the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) compose the site currently referred to as West Valley. The WNYNSC was operated as a nuclear fuel reprocessing facility from 1966 to 1972 which generated 660,000 gallons of highly radioactive liquid. In 1980, the WVDP Act was signed by Congress directing the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to take the lead in solidifying the high level liquids and decontaminating and decommissioning the facilities at West Valley. Perma-Fix provides on-going technical and waste treatment services for this site.
Bench scale treatability study on liquid wastes resulted in a proven stabilization recipe on-site processing.
Stabilized 11,200 gallons of concentrated sodium-bearing wastewater to Nevada National Security Site waste acceptance criteria (WAC).
Developed protocol for stabilization and solidification of sodium bearing wastes. The project was successfully completed in July 2010.
Waste removal, packaging, shipment, disposal and RCRA clean closure services.
Design, development and operation of GIS data management system and Cyber Security Program in compliance with FISMA and NIST SP 800-53.
We have the resources to manage complex projects. Our Technical and Nuclear services staff have a broad range of experience throughout the DOE EM complex.
