WRPS releases plan to improve chemical vapors managementFebruary 10, 2015
RICHLAND, Wash. — Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) is planning a Vapors Management Technology Exchange for Feb. 24-25, 2015, to give technology providers, including businesses, universities and national laboratories, the opportunity to learn more about Hanford’s tank farm vapor conditions and offer potential improvements and solutions.
The technology exchange will help identify current and potential technologies and methods of chemical-vapor detection, monitoring, and abatement to improve the tank farm vapor management system.
Attendance at the technology exchange will be by invitation only. Interested parties are asked to respond to an expression of interest posted no later than 5 p.m., Feb. 9, 2015.
WRPS established an independent Tank Vapor Assessment Team (TVAT), led by the Savannah River National Laboratory to examine hazardous chemical vapors management, related worker-protection measures, and recommend actions to eliminate or mitigate vapor exposures. WRPS has embarked upon a series of actions in response to the TVAT recommendations, including technology evaluation and deployment.
