The Waste Management Working Group (WMWG) is chartered to leverage the expertise and experience of contractors to DOE. The purpose of the WMWG is to seek out and promote the best management and operating practices, cost effective technologies and disposal options for all waste streams generated at DOE facilities whether destined for DOE or commercial facilities. The WMWG is focused on complex-wide integration and technology transfer while supporting cost effective and efficient waste options. This will be achieved in a way that enhances complex wide communication and maintains a priority on safety, environmental stewardship, and security. In addition to the overarching main nuclear waste management focus of the WMWG, the WMWG incorporates the efforts of three technical Subgroups:
- Challenging Waste
- Packaging & Transportation
- Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D)
As part of the recent restructuring within EFCOG, the inventory of lessons learned and best practices generated by the Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D) and Facility Engineering Working Group will be maintained and made available to the users within the DOE complex. Future specific D&D and/or environmental remediation issues related to waste characterization, minimization, disposition, and recycling/reuse will be addressed under ad hoc task groups to be agreed to with DOE on a case by case basis.
