ABSTRACT

The National Transuranic Waste Program (NTWP) is the Department of Energy’s (DOE's) program for managing all transuranic (TRU) waste under DOE’s purview. Much of this waste is eligible for disposal at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP); a portion is not. The NTWP integrates TRU-waste system requirements so that all DOE TRU waste is effectively managed from generation to disposal, including characterization, treatment, and transportation. This paper addresses the major actions the NTWP is taking to help ensure the timely delivery of waste to the WIPP as it approaches opening in 1999.
