(400c) Overcoming Challenges in First-Ever Demolition of a Gaseous Diffusion Complex
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, November 15, 2022 - 4:25pm to 4:55pm
UCOR President and CEO Ken Rueter will describe how the UCOR workforce overcame a challenging work environment caused by structural degradation, radioactive contaminants, hazardous chemicals, materials and wastes, biological hazards, wildlife, insects and environmental conditions. UCOR was able to complete the missionâcalled Vision 2020âfour years ahead of DOEâs schedule and $80 million under budget, resulting in a $500 million savings to taxpayers.
Through environmental cleanup of ETTP, UCOR is facilitating DOEâs vision of transforming once-contaminated government land into a multi-use industrial park that will boost economic growth. The new, revitalized site is home to new industry, historic landmarksâincluding a new national parkâand conservation areas that honor the past while supporting development.
