About This Item


Full Description

In August 1996, ASME, in cooperation with the Office of Science and Technology (OST) of the U.S. Department of Energy, established a process and infrastructure to provide unbiased, independent, accurate and timely peer review for development of technologies supported by OST. This report covers the period ending September 30, 1997. OST is responsible for the development of environmental technology for management of waste generated within DOE, and environmental restoration of sites contaminated through pat activities of DOE and its predecessors. These technologies have far reaching global impact of the enhancement of environmental protection. In the past OST has relied on a variety of reviews to ensure that technological developments are consistent with stated goals. The establishment of a peer review program is a logical extension to these review activities. Contents includes: Manual for Peer Review; Review Reports; Final Reports; Interim Reports; Consensus Reports; Recommendations; and Bibliographic Summaries. Sampling of report topics: Alternative landfill cover demonstration; Proposals for mercury separation/removal; Plasma hearth process; Buried waste containment systems, and etc.
