GLOBAL ACHIEVEMENTS AND CHALLENGES IN WASTE MANAGEMENT It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 37th Annual Waste Management Conference, WM2011.

The aim of the WM Board and the Program Advisory Committee is to put on a program that you find interesting, stimulating and informative. If you have ideas on how to improve the conference, please let us know.

We’ve made it our mission to build a conference that equips you with the best practices from around the world and a return on investment that’s clear and measureable. Over two thousand scientists, engineers and managers attend the conference from companies and agencies around the world.

I would like to thank the WM team for their efforts and our sponsors for their contributions that enhance what we can accomplish. Thanks also to our attendees and exhibitors who make the conference so exciting.

In recognition of the growing drive towards new reactor builds and the need to demonstrate that nuclear waste management is well developed, we have adopted the theme:

We are a non-profit organization with the aim of promoting education and opportunity and your participation helps us to further these objectives.

Global Achievements and Challenges in Waste Management.

I hope you have a very profitable time.

The technical program is comprehensive with over 500 papers and 101 technical sessions and panels and of course complemented by an extensive exhibition.

Fred Sheil Chairman - WM Symposia Sheil Consulting, Ltd, United Kingdom

Buses will shuttle you from the Hyatt beginning at 6:00 PM and return you safely later that evening so you can relax and enjoy a taste of the old West. You will be able to dance, gamble and enjoy the casual environment of one of the most visited sites in the Phoenix area. The legend goes that the original site of Rustler’s Rooste, located at the top of a butte in the foothills of South Mountain, was a hideout for cattle rustlers. Today, it is Arizona’s Legendary Cowboy Steakhouse featuring a spectacular panoramic view of the valley lights.

“Hey good lookin’, whatcha got cookin’?” Get ready for a cowpoke cookout served Chuckwagon style with picnic seating. You’d better come hungry cause Cookie, the chuck wagon chef, doesn’t like light eaters. Sample some tasty appetizers (Yup! they’ve got rattlesnake) and when you hear the dinner bell, treat yourself to mesquite–broiled steaks, ribs and chicken served with all the fixin’s they are famous for. Be sure to save room for desserts, like homemade apple pie or rich fudge brownies.

“Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and “Games of Chance” Okay, we’ve tempted your taste buds and now it’s time to make cowboys out of some of you city slickers. They’ve got the best western entertainment, from a foot stompin’ band and line dancing inside to a little poker training and games of chance outside under the Arizona stars. Professionals will help you learn and sharpen your gambling skills with free (and worthless) WM Bucks. There are no losers at WMS! Now if you register as a Full Technical attendee for WM2011, the Rustler’s Rooste event will be included. If you are not a Full Technical attendee, we still encourage you to come!

Is this a problem nearing a solution? Will storage be available after 12/01/2010 until an acceptable disposal site is operational? Which streams will still face treatment issues? These and other issues will be discussed with the panelists.

Panel: Advanced Used Fuel Recycling & Disposal Options for Shortening Institutional Control Periods of Final Waste to a Few Hundred Years

This panel will focus on the WM EFCOG and will meet to discuss a variety of issues of importance to US DOE waste management operations. The purpose of the WM EFCOG is to seek out and promote the best management and operating practices, cost effective technologies and disposal options for all waste streams generated at US DOE facilities; whether destined for US DOE or commercial facilities.

Co-Chairs: Kun Jai Lee, KUSTAR (United Arab Emirates); Hamid Aït Abderrahim, SCK-CEN (Belgium) Lead Organizer and Panel Reporter: Kun Jai Lee Add’l Organizer: Il-Soon Hwang


Thursday AM This panel will address advanced Used Fuel Recycling & Disposal Options. Recent progress in advanced technology for spent fuel partitioning, transmutation and deep geological repository design can lead to innovative waste management approaches characterized by significantly shortened institutional control periods. In some cases the institutional control period (ICP) can be shortened to several hundred years, with the help of drastically reduced amount of long-living radio-isotopes, heat load and waste volume. Technical, economical and institutional viability of this sort of innovative approach will be the discussion of this panel.

POSTER SESSIONS Be sure to visit the technical posters on display throughout the day. Posters are located on the first floor with the technical sessions. In this informal atmosphere, Poster Presenters become discussion leaders sharing their ideas and visions. Each technical track presents a poster session; see the session descriptions for more information. The WM2011 posters will be displayed approximately 3-1/2 hours and authors are scheduled to be at the booths for one 30-minute period and one 60-minute period. In order to honor high quality presentations at WM2011, the American Nuclear Society (ANS) presents an award for the Best Poster/Paper and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) provides an award for the runner–up. Judges select the poster/paper based on technical quality and preparation of the work as described in the guidelines. Attendee forms for judging posters will also be available in the area and must be turned in one hour before the session ends. Each track selects the best poster/paper which are then displayed and re-judged on Wednesday afternoon for the Best and Second Best of the conference. The Best and Second Best in the conference for WM2011 are presented to the recipients at the next WM conference, WM2012. The "Best Poster Awards" from last year will be presented at the Honors & Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.
