Cementitious Materials for Waste Treatment, Disposal, Remediation and Decommissioning Workshop

December 12-14, 2006
Aiken County Center for Hydrogen Research
Savannah River National Laboratory
Aiken, SC

The Savannah River National Laboratory, the Department of Energy, Vanderbilt University and the Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation (CRESP) are hosting a workshop on cementitious materials used for waste treatment, disposal, remediation, and decommissioning. The workshop will be preceded by 1 day of optional LeachXS Geochemical Software training, provided by Vanderbilt University.

The goal of this meeting is to provide a forum for technical exchange on the use of cementitious materials for radioactive and mixed waste treatment/disposal, environmental restoration, and facility decommissioning in the DOE complex. Exchange of needs, technologies, and approaches to performance predictions among technical experts, regulators, and stakeholders is intended to advance the state of knowledge and identify knowledge gaps. Lessons learned and case studies throughout the DOE Complex will be shared. This workshop is intended for scientists, engineers, project managers, university personnel, and regulatory and oversight personnel. Information developed from this workshop will support Department of Energy decision making and deployment of cementitious materials. This information will be made available in a summary report.

Applications to be addressed include:

  • Waste Treatment
  • Disposal Site Construction
  • Tank Stabilization
  • Facility Decommissioning
  • Environmental Restoration

Technical issues will include:

  • Mixing and Placement Properties
  • Cured Properties
  • Leaching
  • Durability Assessment and Durability Predictions
  • Application of Properties and Performance Assessment Models
