A partnership between EnergySolutions and Environmental Dimensions Inc. has been awarded a $200M contract for waste characterization, processing and services for the U.S. Department of Energy's Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The scope of work includes all aspects of radioactive and hazardous waste management including; planning, storage, movement, characterization, processing, and packaging at RCRA, radiological, and nuclear facilities.
EnergySolutions and EDI will place particular emphasis on transuranic (TRU) waste retrieval, characterization, processing, and packaging for disposal at the WIPP site in southeastern New Mexico. The TRU Waste Program at LANL has taken center stage since the historic Las Conchas fire last summer. LANL has signed an agreement with the Governor of New Mexico to remove all above ground TRU waste and ship to WIPP by June 2014. This contract will be the principal means by which LANL accomplishes this milestone.
