The Clive disposal facility is permitted to accept Mixed Waste, which is a combination of both RCRA hazardous and radioactive waste. Treatment technologies include macro encapsulation of radioactive lead solids and hazardous debris, stabilization of heavy metals, neutralization and solidification of contaminated liquids, thermal treatment of waste containing organic solvents, amalgamation of elemental mercury, and treatment of other unique waste streams.
EnergySolutions mission is to safely treat and dispose of these radioactive wastes to ensure the protection of the environment and public. Material shipped to Clive arrives by truck and train where the waste is safely disposed in engineered embankments.
Our employees take great pride in safety and have accomplished more than 7-million-man hours without a lost time accident as well as being a VPP Star Certified Site. Safety is our value and it’s our first priority when managing radioactive waste. Once the waste is safely disposed, a robust monitoring system ensures the integrity of the cell is maintained. Water and air monitoring stations are located throughout the site to ensure the environment is not compromised.
