SRNS Uses Innovative Technology to “Steam Clean” at SRS
Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC (SRNS) recently completed a multi-year project resulting in the removal of over 33,000 gallons of non-radioactive chemical solvents from beneath the Savannah River Site’s (SRS) M Area, preventing these pollutants from entering the local water table. The DUS cleanup system is simple in concept: Drill strategically placed vertical, horizontal and angled penetrations through 10 million cubic feet of soil, located beneath the now remediated M Area pond and inject millions of pounds of steam. This process increases the temperature of the solvents to the point where they vaporize. The solvent vapors (and some associated contaminated liquids) are then “vacuumed” out of the contaminated area through the use of 33 extraction wells and treated at the surface.
