Under the requirements of the Federal Facility Compliance Act (FFCA), the Department of Energy (DOE) is obligated to develop treatment plants for their stockpile of wastes generated at their various sites. As a result, DOE is facing the monumental problem associated with the treatment and ultimate disposal of their mixed (radioactive and hazardous) waste. Numerous conventional and innovative environmental technologies are under development for this application. The main objective of the IAG was to conduct a research program on thermal technologies for treating mixed waste and to establish permit procedures for these technologies particularly under the new requirements of the above-mentioned EPA Combustion Strategy. This paper discusses IAG activities.
