2,000-Gallon Test Bed Initiative Demonstration

2,000-Gallon Test Bed Initiative Demonstration

March 11, 2024 - April 25, 2024, 11:55 p.m.

We are proposing a draft research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) permit for the 2,000-gallon Test Bed Initiative (TBI) Demonstration located in the 200 West Area of the Hanford Site. The permittees are the U.S. Department of Energy (Energy) and Washington River Protection Solutions, LLC.

This draft RD&D permit would authorize the proposed 2,000-gallon TBI Demonstration in order to test the feasibility and efficacy of deploying an in-tank pretreatment system (ITPS) to separate and pre-treat about 2,000 gallons of low-activity tank waste.The pretreated waste would then be shipped offsite for grouting and disposal at permitted facilities outside the state of Washington.
