Outline EM Background –Mission –Facilities –Deactivation and Decommissioning (D&D) ARRA Accomplishments: Footprint Reduction Maintenance Program Reviews EM Sustainability –Performance Status –Challenges –Path Forward –High Performance Sustainable Building Strategy Summary Questions 2
3 EM Mission Largest environmental cleanup effort in the world, originally involving two million acres at 108 sites in 35 states Safely performing work in challenging environments Involving some of the most dangerous materials known to man Solving highly complex technical problems with first-of-a-kind technologies Operating in the worlds most complex regulatory environment Supporting other continuing DOE missions and stakeholder partnerships Complete the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy brought about from five decades of nuclear weapons development, production, and Government- sponsored nuclear energy research.
EM Mission: Program Priorities Essential activities to maintain a safe, secure, and compliant posture in the EM complex Radioactive tank waste stabilization, treatment, and disposal Spent nuclear fuel storage, receipt, and disposition Special nuclear material consolidation, stabilization, and disposition High priority groundwater remediation Transuranic (TRU) and mixed/low- level waste disposition Soil and groundwater remediation Excess facilities deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) 4

7 EM Footprint Reduction to Date The graph below shows EM footprint reductions through FY 2010 and planned reductions due to disposal in FY2011 and FY2012. It does not reflect new construction or transfers into EM.
Deactivation and Decommissioning (D&D) D&D: The process of taking an active/excess/abandoned facility to a final disposition end state. D&D presents unique hazards that must be addressed from a safety, programmatic, environmental, and technological standpoint due to residual radioactivity, and other hazardous constituents, and the physical condition of EMs facilities. These facilities contain many complex systems (e.g. ventilation), miles of contaminated pipelines, glove boxes, and unique processing equipment that require labor intensive deactivation and decommissioning methods.

9 ARRA Program Funding Will demolish more than five million square feet of facilities by end of FY 2011 Will demolish more than six million square feet of facilities by end of FY 2012 Many of these facilities are not at EM sites EM Received $6 Billion in Recovery Act Funding - $3.32 Billion Allocated to D&D, Greatly Accelerating D&D over EM Baseline

EM Maintenance Program Reviews Purpose –Meet EM responsibilities for oversight and awareness –Verify compliance with DOE Order 430.2B –Assess site programs for maintaining safe operating conditions at shut-down facilities EM-Headquarters and Field Offices jointly conducted reviews at: –Hanford –WIPP –Savannah River 13
Maintenance Program Review Results Results –Site maintenance programs are well managed –Field Offices and Contractors have a good understanding of maintenance needs –DOE corporate maintenance metrics for EM do not consistently reflect site conditions –EM has many beyond-design-life facilities and recapitalization investments have been limited –EM Guidance and site policies for surveillance of shut-facilities are generally implemented to ensure that critical maintenance needs are identified and addressed. 14

EM Real Property Improvements EM sites continue to improve the quality of data in the FIMS database –Adding facilities to FIMS –Improving accuracy of replacement plant value estimates –Improving quality of Condition Assessment Surveys and resulting deferred maintenance estimates Savannah River replaced a forty year old coal-fired boiler with a new energy-efficient biomass cogeneration facility through an ESPC –EM may have more opportunities to recapitalize infrastructure through ESPC and similar mechanisms 16
EM FY2010 Sustainability Performance While completing significantly increased mission work: Met energy and water intensity reduction goals Slight decrease in Scopes 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions Minimal increase in Scope 3 GHG emissions Nearly 40 percent increase in fleet petroleum use over FY2005 No buildings meet the High Performance Sustainable Building (HPSB) Guiding Principles 17
EM Greenhouse Gas Reduction Challenge 18
EM Sustainability Path Forward Broaden our risk management considerations to include greenhouse gas emissions and resource consumption in our decision making –Consider green remediation where appropriate In addition to potential reduction in fossil energy use, green remediation offers the potential for reduced water use, improved storm water management, and soil sequestration of carbon –Consider in-situ decommissioning (entombment) where appropriate –Use HPSB Guiding Principles as opportunity to reduce lifecycle costs and GHG emissions –Pursue ESPCs, UESCs, and similar third party financing mechanisms to recapitalize infrastructure and meet sustainability goals 19
In-Situ Decommissioning (ISD) ISD is the permanent entombment of a contaminated facility ISD Projects –Savannah River P-Area Production Reactor –Hanford U-Plant Canyon –Idaho National Lab 125 to 200 potential facilities $2.5 to $4 billion savings 900 to 1900 thousand metric tons CO 2 avoided 20 Before After
EM HPSB Strategy EM has few new buildings coming on line and will mainly need to address existing buildings - possibly including shut down and process buildings Approximately 50% of the Guiding Principles are to establish and implement site-wide policies, plans, or specifications EM sites implement most of the green procurement and waste minimization requirements and can take credit for existing programs Many Guiding Principles do not apply to non-occupied buildings Guiding Principles that do apply to non-occupied buildings can be valuable tools to reduce life-cycle costs and GHG emissions HPSB Guiding Principles are consistent with EMs environmental protection mission 21
Summary EMs mission supports DOEs sustainability goals EM assets are well-maintained considering age EM sites continue to improve the quality of FIMs data HPSB Guiding Principles can be tools to reduce GHG emissions and life-cycle costs ESPC and similar financing mechanisms might help EM meet its sustainability goals and recapitalize its infrastructure 22
