Llnl history and mission
LLNL History and Mission

  • The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is a research and development institution for science and technology applied to national security operating under the National Nuclear Security Administration. Primary missions include:

    • Stockpile Stewardship

    • Nonproliferation and Homeland Security

    • Research and Development in energy and environment, bioscience, and fundamental science and advanced technology

    • National Ignition Facility (NIF)

    • National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center

  • LLNL is operated by a private consortium called Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC

Llnl main site and site 300
LLNLMain Site and Site 300

Analytical organization
Analytical Organization

  • LLNL Sample management of waste samples has been restructured and centralized within the Radioactive and Hazardous Waste organization

  • Environmental Compliance Monitoring and Environmental Restoration activities are separate organizations and samples are managed differently. Each has their own management process, but share a central database system

Environmental restoration and monitoring
Environmental Restoration and Monitoring

  • LLNL Main Site completed build-out of treatment facilities and is in operation and maintenance mode for CERCLA activities

  • LLNL Site 300 is progressing in the final phase of characterization and treatment facility construction

  • Permitted compliance monitoring such as NPDES, Surface water monitoring, sewer monitoring, and soil reuse activities are expected to remain constant in Fiscal Year (FY) 2011

  • No Stimulus funding has been allocated for Environmental activities

Demolition and decommissioning
Demolition and Decommissioning

  • Internal funding remains uncertain with no stimulus funding

  • Site facility plan includes a significant reduction in facility “foot print” (2 Million square foot goal)

  • Working on facilities requiring Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) closure (B419 permitted waste storage and treatment facility)

  • Some of the closure related analytical work should result in increased use of off-site analytical contracts and an increase in waste shipment costs

Fy 2010 llnl onsite waste treated
FY 2010 LLNL Onsite Waste Treated

  • Low Level Waste 52 m3

    (LLW) and Mixed LLW

    (MLLW) aqueous waste

  • Debris Washing 37 m3

  • Stabilization 5.2 m3

  • Sort/Segregate 10.4 m3

Fy 2010 waste treatment and disposal volumes

Planned is the total volume of newly generated waste received

Actual is the total volume of newly generated waste shipped for treatment and/or disposal

FY 2010 Waste Treatment and Disposal Volumes

Fy 2010 accomplishments
FY 2010 Accomplishments received

  • Completed TRU Waste Shipping Campaign

    • 586 containers were originally considered for evaluation

    • 107 containers were removed from this population due to technical reasons (previously identified prohibited items, oversized boxes, standard waste boxes, etc.)

    • 478 containers were radiographed

    • Of the 478 containers, 43.1% (206 containers) failed RTR

    • Of the 478 containers, 56.9% (272 containers) passed RTR

    • Of the 272 containers that passes RTR, 78.7% (214 containers) were shipped to Idaho and the remaining 21.3% (58 containers) did not ship due to other reasons

    • 264 containers will be returned to Superblock for repackaging

Llnl current analytical activities
LLNL Current receivedAnalytical Activities

  • Environmental compliance for NPDES, sewer monitoring, surface water, and groundwater monitoring programs remain constant with no changes to the number of samples. Analytical needs are not expected to increase

  • LLNL currently contracts with 6 primary labs, 4 of which are DOECAP participants

  • LLNL waste management has developed limited onsite screening capabilities with a new waste sample management office. Analytical needs are expected to increase for Demolition and Decommissioning (D&D) activities and NIF operations.

  • LLNL uses 2 onsite California certified environmental labs for limited scopes of work

Analytical sample load for fy 2011
Analytical Sample receivedLoad for FY 2011

  • LLNL sample costs for Restoration and Compliance Monitoring will remain stable for FY 2011 (approximately $975K)

  • LLNL waste characterization analytical costs should increase from FY 2011 estimates (approximately $100K)

  • Analytical costs for D&D efforts will increase for Building (B) 419 demolition (Approximately $200K)

  • Total FY 2011 off-site analytical projection is $1.4M

Llnl future needs for analysis
LLNL Future Needs receivedfor Analysis

  • Analytical needs for restoration and compliance monitoring activities anticipated to remain stable through FY 2012

  • Waste characterization is anticipated to increase due to decontamination, decommissioning, and demolition activities through FY 2012

  • LLNL continuing shift from SW-846 based methodology to Standard Methods to comply with closure and monitoring regulations

  • Looking for methodology criteria for Isotopic Uranium analysis performance by ICP/MS for the closure of B812 at the LLNL Site 300

Waste generating activities
Waste Generating receivedActivities

  • Plutonium Facility inventory reduction

    (TRU waste generated from the inventory management)

  • B321C decontamination waste

    (Beryllium and Uranium waste)

  • NIF waste management

    (Facility to generate waste when ignition campaign begins)

  • B865 Accelerator D&D

  • B419 Waste Storage and Treatment facility D&D

Newly generated waste disposal options
Newly Generated Waste receivedDisposal Options

  • Most LLW is disposed at NNSS

  • About 350 cubic feet of MLLW, generated annually, will go to either NNSS or commercial disposal sites, primarily Energy Solutions

  • Other TSDFs used include:

    • Energy Solutions

    • Permafix

    • DSSI

    • M&EC

    • Clean Harbors
