  • A summary of radioactive waste management

    Each of the papers is co-authored by personnel from SRNL and IRL. SRNL's Dr. Eduardo Farfan and Tim Jannik were the editors for the special issue.

    Under a new agreement signed in 2010, SRNL and IRL continue to collaborate on radiation ecology research, looking for mutually beneficial projects in a variety of subjects related to radiation ecology.

    "Even though Chernobyl is fundamentally different from any U.S. nuclear site, there is much we can learn in the surrounding area," said Eduardo Farfan, co-principal SRNL investigator for interactions with IRL. "As a result of the accident, the nearby area has become a unique laboratory where we can observe how the environment changes and how animals and plants change over time following contamination. The scientists at IRL have unique knowledge since they work with this landscape every day," he added.

    The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, which includes the abandoned industrial city of Pripyat, is heavily contaminated as a result of the accident. Unfit for residential or agricultural use, it is uniquely suited for studying radionuclide distribution, movement and effect.

    "We share a lot of the same interests with our colleagues at IRL," said Farfan, "They are developing techniques and technologies for cleaning up the environment in the region that might ultimately be useful to DOE," he said. DOE is conducting major programs to clean up and decommission its facilities that are no longer used for nuclear materials production and processing.

    In addition to providing a market for IRL's cleanup technologies, the collaboration also provides IRL with the expertise at SRNL and other DOE laboratories. In one project funded by the EM International Program, an SRNL expert in nature-based environmental cleanup techniques, Dr. Miles Denham, is working with IRL to study the potential of engineered soil amendments to enhance nat
