DOE EM Update – West Valley Team Creates Conveyor, Furthering Safety for Asbestos Removal

July 2, 2019 – EM deactivation and decommissioning (D&D) crew members used ingenuity and lessons learned to develop a conveyor system to safely remove material containing asbestos from inside a building at the West Valley Demonstration Project. 

Workers used the conveyor system to get rid of about 56,000 pounds of plaster containing asbestos material from the walls of a control room on the fourth floor of the Main Plant Process Building. They are clearing away asbestos material to prepare the structure for demolition. Link to article
