1 Liquid Waste Organization John E. Owen Washington Savannah River Company NSNFP / HLW Strategy Meeting Washington, DC April 14 – 15, 2009 LWO-WSE

2 2 2 Interim Waste Disposition Projects (Salt Processing) Savannah River Site Liquid Waste Proposed Saltstone Feed Facility SaltstoneVaults (Grout) Salt Supernate Saltcake Sludge H Canyon (Waste Influent) Defense Waste Processing Facility Glass Waste Storage Building (Vitrified Canisters) DWPF Recycle Future Salt Waste Processing Facility Tank 48 Recovery Evaporator Operations Tank Farms FFA Closure Sludge Processing Space Management

3 3 SRS Composite Inventory Salt Supernate Saltcake Sludge Volume 37.7 Million Gallons (Mgal) Curies 196 MCi (52%) 184 MCi (48%) 380 Million Curies (MCi) 183 MCi (48%) Sludge 34.4 Mgal (91%) 3.3 Mgal (9%) 18.1 Mgal (46%) Inventory values as of Salt Supernate 12 MCi (3%) Saltcake 16.3 Mgal (45%)

4 4 4 MST Strike Tank PRFT ARP (HTF: 96-H) ARP (DWPF: 512-S) MCU (HTF: 278-H) WTL (DWPF: 221-S) Interim Salt Processing Vault Saltstone VITRIFICATION MST Strike Tank TK 49 Precip Tank Crossflow Filter Filtrate Hold Tank Receipt Tank Feed Tank Receipt Tank Solvent Hold Tank Contactors DSS Decanter DSS Hold Tank TK 50 SS Receipt Tank Strip Effluent Hold Tank SS Mixing Tank Strip Effluent Decanter SEFT SRAT

5 5 Saltstone Processing Processed 3.7M gallons of salt solution total Processed 1.4M gallons since start of current campaign in March 2007 Processing Rate – 120K gallons / wk Vault 2 Under Construction

6 6 Salt Waste Processing Facility 98M Gallons Salt Solution to be processed Full Construction Authorization (CD-3) Transition to Radioactive Operation - May 2013

7 7 Salt Disposition Integration Project Prepare initial macrobatch feed for SWPF Ready to feed SWPF by a rate of: – 3.75M gallons / yr – first year – 6M gallons / yr – normal rate Ready to process 220K gal/wk from SWPF to Saltstone Ready to process Strip Effluent and MST Sludge Solids from SWPF to DWPF

8 8 HLW Processing Overview 2696 Canisters Produced (thru March 31) 2.82 M Gallons transferred from HTF 97 Canisters – FY 09 (thru March 31) Processing Sludge Batch 5 thru May 2010 Melter 2 – Operational Since March 2003 Melter 3 – Ready as Spare Melter 4 - Vessel and Frame contract awarded K3 Refractory – Manufacturing In progress Components – Under construction Assembly completion date – November 2013

9 9 Issues and Challenges Tank Closure Canister Fissile Loading – Processing limitations – 897 g/m3 – Sludge Batch 5 limited to 33 wt % waste loading Construction and Startup of SWPF Total Canister Production Availability of Federal Repository
