NNSA issues order of intent

-A A +A

The U.S. Department of Energy intends to modify the scope of the Surplus Plutonium Disposition Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SPD SEIS) and to conduct additional public scoping in Northern New Mexico.
DOE published the Notice of Intent today in the Federal Register and it is available online at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-01-12/pdf/2012-445.pdf.
The public scoping meeting is scheduled for 5:30-8 p.m., Feb. 2, at the Cities of Gold Hotel.
DOE intends to further revise the scope of the SPD SEIS, originally scoped in 2007 and amended in 2010, to add additional alternatives for the disassembly of plutonium pits and the conversion of plutonium metal originating from pits to feed material for the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF), which DOE is constructing at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina.
