ATGC Asiantaeth Trwyddedu Hywyr A Cherbydau (Welsh: Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, UK) ), a leading provider of low-level radioactive waste Noun 1. low-level radioactive waste - (medicine) radioactive waste consisting of objects that have been briefly exposed to radioactivity (as in certain medical tests) treatment services, Thursday announced that it has begun non-thermal mixed waste processing at its new mixed waste facility in Richland, Wash.
At approximately 5 p.m. on Dec. 22, 1999, ATG started processing mixed waste received from the Department of Energy ("DOE") site at Hanford. These mixed wastes will be processed using super-compaction and macro-encapsulation technologies. Following the completion of processing and after meeting the land disposal requirements, the treated waste will be returned to DOE for disposal.
"ATG is pleased that after four years of stringent permitting procedures and technology development activities, we are now equipped to open our mixed waste facility," said Doreen Chiu, president and chief executive officer of ATG. "We are ready to deliver new services to the market and we are very encouraged by the overall response we have received from our clients," Chiu added.
ATG's mixed waste facility will be one of the most comprehensive mixed waste treatment facilities in the nation. The facility includes 19 different unit operations Unit operations
A structure of logic used for synthesizing and analyzing processing schemes in the chemical and allied industries, in which the basic underlying concept is that all processing schemes can be composed from and decomposed into a series of . Three of these units became operational yesterday. Construction of the balance of the non-thermal treatment equipment will continue and most non-thermal processes are expected to be complete by the end of February 2000.
Construction of the thermal treatment Thermal treatment is a term given to any waste treatment technology that involves high temperatures in the processing of the waste feedstock. This commonly, although not exclusively involves the combustion of waste materials. mixed waste facility has begun and is expected to be completed toward the end of the second quarter. Demonstration testing will be conducted over a two-month period and it is presently anticipated that commercial thermal operations will begin toward the end of the third quarter of the year.
ATG has three contracts to process waste for DOE facilities that total approximately $40 million, including all option years. The company has also received several purchase orders from commercial facilities and anticipates that additional mixed waste currently in storage at numerous DOE, Department of Defense and commercial facilities will become available for treatment as the company's facility becomes operational.

"After spending a great deal of time and resources, the regulatory bodies have been satisfied that the operation of ATG's treatment units will be safe to the workers and will be protective of the public and the environment," said Fred Feizollahi, vice president of engineering and technology. Feizollahi has been the project manager since the inception of the permitting process in 1995.
