Brochure title:
Tank Waste Information Network System
To help the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its contractors safely store, empty, and treat the nuclear waste in Hanford Site's 177 underground tanks, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory created the Tank Waste Information Network System (TWINS), an innovative knowledge management system. Operators of the Hanford Site's nuclear waste tank system use TWINS to safely operate and analyze the tanks' 53-million-gallon contents. Hanford's nuclear safety and environmental compliance personnel, regulators such as the Washington State Department of Ecology and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and research laboratories and universities also use TWINS to analyze tank data.
