Waste Classification Control - doe-std-1128-98_ch10223


DOE-STD-1128-98
All managers of facilities or activities that generate hazardous,
radioactive, and mixed waste are responsible for:
-- Minimizing the volume and toxicity of all radioactive, hazardous,
and radioactive mixed waste generated, to the extent economically
practicable
-- preparing and updating waste minimization plans for their waste-
generating facilities or activities. Small waste generators in a larger
facility may be grouped with others in a facility or activity plan
-- implementing the facility-specific or activity-specific waste
minimization plan
-- providing input to the organization responsible for waste
characterization and minimization, to support the waste minimization
program
-- communicating waste minimization plans to their employees, and
ensuring that employees receive appropriate training
-- ensuring that existing system/equipment replacement or modification
is designed and installed to minimize generation of waste
-- developing new waste minimization strategies, and identifying
cognizant staff for waste minimization communications between
facility personnel
-- identifying new waste generating facilities or activities and
significant process changes to existing facilities or activities to the
waste characterization and waste minimization organization.
Waste volume control, or waste minimization, involves limiting the
amount of material that becomes contaminated, segregating clean and
contaminated material, and prolonging the useful life of equipment and
material to minimize replacement. Sometimes, materials can be
completely cleaned so that disposal as sanitary waste (or refurbishment
in clean areas) is an option.
Program design decisions can affect TRU waste-generation. For
example, the quantity of protective clothing may be a significant factor.
If an incinerator is available, combustible protective clothing may be
selected to have a low ash content and generate a minimum of harmful
effluents such as oxides of nitrogen or halogenated compounds. In other
facilities, water-washable, reusable protective clothing may minimize
waste disposal.
