Notice of Availability of Draft Waste Incidental to Reprocessing Evaluation for the Concentrator Feed Makeup Tank and Melter Feed Hold Tank at the West Valley Demonstration Project for West Valley, NY
Document Number: 2012-15986
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-29
Agency: Department of Energy
The Department of Energy (DOE) announces the availability of a draft evaluation which shows that the concentrator feed makeup tank and melter feed hold tank (the vessels) which were used in conjunction with vitrifying waste from reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel and certain treatment material at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP), located at the Western New York Service Center in West Valley, New York, are waste incidental to reprocessing and thus are not high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and may be managed and disposed of offsite as low-level waste (LLW). DOE prepared the draft evaluation pursuant to DOE Manual 435.1-1, Radioactive Waste Management Manual. DOE is consulting with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) before finalizing this evaluation. Although it is not required by DOE Manual 435.1-1, DOE is making the draft evaluation available for public and state review and comment during the NRC consultative review period. DOE will make its final evaluation and determination as to whether the vessels are HLW, or are waste incidental to reprocessing which can be managed and disposed of as LLW, after consideration of any public, state, and NRC comments on this draft evaluation.
Proposed Agency Information Collection
Document Number: 2012-15984
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-29
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance, a proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The proposed collection will enable a user-based evaluation of submitted entries to the Bright Tomorrow Lighting Competition (L Prize[supreg]) competition. The L Prize competition was authorized to encourage development and deployment of highly energy efficient solid- state lighting products. The proposed collection will assist in evaluating the entries in a real-world environment to insure that winning products do not exhibit undesirable or poor qualities that are not identified from formal laboratory testing by the DOE. These undesirable attributes could be a hindrance to sales of the winning product and could negatively impact the energy reduction potential of the competition. Additionally, the DOE wishes to gauge program success by periodically obtaining quantitative data about the effectiveness of the promotions and campaigns which are directly tied to L Prize winners. The quantitative data will be a survey asking five qualitative questions about the occupant's overall satisfaction of the lights. The brief assessments will be collected by the site's partner sponsor and returned, along with the entrant lamps, to DOE at the conclusion of the field assessment.
