Los Alamos National Laboratory today announced it has selected four small businesses to compete for up to $200 million in services related to safely packaging Cold War-era wastes for final disposal.
The companies—Environmental Dimensions, Inc.; North Wind, Inc.; Navarro Research and Engineering, Inc.; and Portage, Inc.—will now use a streamlined process to bid for a number of individual tasks under this “master task order agreement.”
Tasks include such activities as handling waste containers, transporting them to licensed disposal facilities, and providing verification and certification of delivery.
The wastes include soils removed from cleanup sites such as canyons or landfills, debris from the demolition of old buildings, and chemical or other hazardous wastes.
Some of these materials may include trace or low levels of radioactive material.
They also include transuranic waste generated from national security missions.
By law, this waste must be properly examined, certified, and packaged for shipment to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) repository in Southern New Mexico.
