variety of near-field conditions could provide future flexibility to apply them more widely throughout the clean-up program.
As noted previously, this interim report has focused on near-term opportunities that the committee judges will be useful to DOE-EM for planning its fiscal year 2011 technology development programs. The committee’s final report will address the statement of task in its entirety. It will provide a more detailed assessment of waste forms, processing technologies, and state-of-the-art tests and models. It will also identify longer-term research, development, and deployment opportunities for DOE-EM’s cleanup program. The final report is scheduled for completion in September 2010.
