Rick convinced the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection that WARMF was a superior tool to do Delivery and
TMDLs and to test WARMF on a watershed in western PA, as a potential prelude to using it for all PA TMDLs.         Applications
USEPA Region III participated as well as other stakeholder groups in the study. The outcome here has been the
same as in WV, increased credibility for WARMF, increased insights for EPRI about how to do TMDLs and a
more valuable product to be used by the entire EPRI membership. Under USEPA and the State of West Virginia,
TMDLs were developed for WV that threatened to curtail future economic growth. Rick felt that the derivations
were technically weak and that application of WARMF would put the issue on a firm technical basis. They
persuaded USEPA Region III to apply WARMF instead of EPA’s own framework BASINS. The application led to
the enhancement of WARMF as a result of the addition of capabilities to address acid mine drainage. The
application led to the introduction of WARMF to a diverse stakeholder group and increased credibility for
WARMF.
Rick has applied and championed EPRI research on ecological asset and ecosystem management. In doing so Delivery and
he has demonstrated a high degree of vision with respect to protection of natural resources through innovative     Applications
cost efficient approaches. Over a period of years, and through Rick's leadership, Allegheny Power advanced
their understanding of value associated with ecological assets present at the company's Canaan Valley property,
a 20,000 acre tract located in NE West Virginia. Beginning with non-market valuation, using approved
econometric methods, Rick and his team sponsored EPRI studies in 1998 and 1999 of potential eco-asset value
for the property. Upon the decision of the Allegheny Board to sell the property (refocusing on core business
commitments), Rick sponsored in year 2000 a formal market-based appraisal of the property's ecological assets.
When compared with a traditional land appraisal the result was a doubling of value for the property based on then-
market prices for wetlands, TMDL allocations, riparian stream zones, biomass carbon and biodiversity (protected
species and/or habitats).

method to determine the presence or absence of free product above and below a residual saturation point. The
team tested each of their site soils and coal tars to determine a defensible method by which they could determine
how much soil could theoretically be removed from a contaminated MGP site. Werner Max (PSEG Services,
LLC), Bill Hoynack (Northeast Utilities) and Paul Boison (Northeast Utilities) were particularly instrumental in
aiding in the guidance of this research effort, which will in turn benefit the industry for years to come. The other

10CFR Part 61, ―Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste,‖ Sub-Part 61.55 defines                Technology Transfer
radioactive waste classifications for near-surface land disposal. Waste Class B/C wet waste, including filter and
ion exchange media, is one of the most expensive radioactive wastes routinely generated by U.S. commercial
reactors. A total of 90% of the U.S. industry is challenged with the loss of Class B/C low-level waste (LLW)
disposition access after 2008. This project is the first part of an EPRI initiative to develop techniques and
technologies to reduce the generation and accumulation of Class B/C waste. Opportunities exist for decreasing
generation of this type of waste through innovative media, operational practices, and volume reduction methods.
This project reviewed various station initiatives for practical reductions of Class B/C waste. Considerations for on-
site storage were factored into some of the analyses and include cost factors related to on-site media movement,
packaging, dewatering, volume reduction (if used), and final transfer to a storage facility. Individual stations are
encouraged to use the results from this project to develop their own Class B/C waste reduction initiatives.

Leadership in applying EPRI information and technology to improve the accuracy of mercury emissions              Delivery and
measurements and increase industry knowledge on emissions chemistry                                              Applications
Under USEPA and the State of West Virginia, TMDLs were developed for WV that threatened to curtail future        Delivery and
economic growth. Rick and Mike felt that the derivations were technically weak and that application of WARMF     Applications
would put the issue on a firm technical basis. They persuaded USEPA Region III to apply WARMF instead of
EPA’s own framework BASINS. The application led to the enhancement of WARMF as a result of the addition of
capabilities to address acid mine drainage. The application led to the introduction of WARMF to a diverse
stakeholder group and increased credibility for WARMF. As a result of the application, EPA requested that EPRI
sponsor a peer review of WARMF. The results of the review, which have been accepted by EPA, add significant
credibility and stature to the WARMF framework, thus significantly increasing its value to all EPRI members.
None of this would have occurred had it not been for the vision and proactive stance of Rick and Mike.
Significantly contributed tothe development of International Standards for communications with advanced          Product Champion

N. N. Dharmarajan (AEP) and John Jansen (Southern Company), as co-chairs of UARG's Regional Air Quality           Delivery and
Effects committee, have worked closely with EPRI staff and UARG counsel to apply the results of EPRI's visibility Applications
and air quality modeling research to the development of comments on EPA's application and interpretation of
models and visibility science in the proposed BART and CAIR rules. In addition, they, along with Brandon
Krough (Minnesota Power) and David Long (AEP), have worked with EPRI staff to communicate the results of
EPRI research on natural conditions for visibility to the states as they evaluate the issue in the RPO process.

N.N. Dharmarajan and Dick Robertson played key roles during the course of the BRAVO Study. Dharma pushed             Delivery and
for an independent review of the BRAVO study. Dharma and Dick were involved in the study from the outset,            Applications
ensuring that the study results were based on best available science and that the results were presented in an
objective manner. They participated in all meetings/conference calls related to the study, raising critical issues
and contributed to the scientific discussion. They provided technical feedback to EPRI’s technical contributions
and discussed the progress of the broader BRAVO Study with EPRI managers on an ongoing basis. They
challenged questionable assumptions during the measurement and analysis phases of the BRAVO Study,
providing valuable input to development of alternate approaches by both EPRI and the other study participants.
When the overall BRAVO Study was delayed because of setbacks in the analyses of other study participants,
Dharmarajan and Robertson ensured that EPRI’s participation prospered within the study through their
unwavering support.
For his leadership role in communicating the EPRI research to key stakeholders involved in regional haze             Delivery and
debate. Dharmarajan has been active in the Central Regional Air Planning Association (CENRAP) where he is a          Applications
member of the Implementation and Control Strategy workgroup. He closely interacts with key state
representatives in CENRAP to apprise them of the latest EPRI research urging them to use results from EPRI
research in developing State Implementation Plans (SIPs). In addition to closely working with CENRAP, he twice
arranged this year for EPRI scientists to present the benefits of using an improved methodology for regional haze
to CENRAP members. Last year, he worked closely with a representative of the IMPROVE Steering Committee
to inform him about EPRI's recommendations on changing the default approach for implementing the regional
haze rule. This proved to be critical in getting IMPROVE Steering Committee to agree to 1) consider possibility of
changing the IMPROVE visibility equation, and 2) EPRI and National Park Services (NPS) work together on
developing the final recommendations.

The individuals named have taken a leadership role in shaping, encouraging, guiding, advising, and supporting            Delivery and
the rapidly evolving program in communicating EPRI research results to members, decision makers, and the                 Applications
public. They have been the principal individuals behind the unified dissemination of communication tools to utility
industry leaders and public information officials, and in facilitating dialogue on the most effective way to translate
technical findings into products with immediacy and relevance to public debate. As a result of their leadership,
EPRI managers have recently been invited to provide research updates to the Executive Office of the President,
to headquarters personnel at cabinet-level agencies such as the Interior Department and the Environmental
Protection Agency, and to staff members of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. The leadership
of Messrs. McManus, Heydlauff, Michaud, and Baldwin has shaped the preparation and compilation of the
communications tools prepared into a coherent whole, flexible enough for a variety of audiences and able to
serve as the core of an expanding and continuing effort.
For their leadership in demonstrating that ammonia could be used to mitgate flue gas SO3 levels by properly              Technology Transfer
managing the algal and bacterial populations fly ash ponds. The ammonium in the pond would serve as a
nutrient source for algae and an energy source for nitrifying bacteria, whose growth and metabolism would
reduce ammonia concentrations, eliminating concerns about NPDES permit compliance. Activities of the team
included pond sampling, laboratory analyses, nutrient applications and the recruitment of university and expert
consultants. Relative to the cost of alternative treatment systems, the aeration system has already paid for itself
many times over. The knowledge gained during this project will be incorporated into EPRI's on-line, interactive
application: Integrated Management of Multiple Constituents in Fly Ash Ponds, which will be available in late
2007.

With the cooperation of both AEP and SCE, this collaboration with EPRI was the first systematic approach to              Delivery and
evaluate the extent to which nuisance shocks occur. Lou Hosek in collaboration with Tom Jones made                       Applications
arrangements to contact line crews for the purpose of the survey. Beth A. Johnson, Industrial Hygienist, who
served as the administrator, organized and conducted the surveys of line workers on two days for a total of 46
completed surveys. Survey participation entailed obtaining permission to perform survey, arranging employee
meetings for conducting the surveys, and conducting the surveys over about an hour. Administering the surveys
to the employee group entailed giving an introductory presentation about nuisance shocks, leading a group
discussion of nuisance shock experiences, explaining how to complete the survey to participants, responding to
any questions about the intent and content of the survey, and collecting the completed surveys for transmittal to
project headquarters. Beth and Lou in Dallas were also available to respond to questions after completed
surveys were sent in for analysis.

316(b) rules. Through an EPRI TC agreement, he has given EPRI access to the Ohio River Ecological Research
Program (ORERP) database, which is being used to develop population-level assessment methods for
evaluating the potential adverse effects of power plant fish entrainment and impingement. The ORERP is a utility
sponsored fish population research program that has been in place for over 30 years. The cost savings of using
this database and its associated models, rather than conducting individual 316(b) studies, are estimated to be
$280,000 per plant. The 30-year database has demonstrated continued improvement of the river’s fish
populations and has been used in applications for certification by the Wildlife Habitat Council as part of AEP’s
Environmental Stewardship program.

since the last time the issue had been in the regulatory spotlight, over 20 years ago. He worked with EPRI to
organize and host a workshop on current technical and regulatory considerations regarding thermal discharges.
The workshop was attended by over 120 people. During the two-day meeting, new developments in technical,
regulatory and legal information on Section 316 (a) of the Clean Water Act were exchanged and needed research
was identified. Participants included eclectic power companies, government agencies, universities, environmental

These award recipients have been in the forefront of the PISCES project to evaluate the mercury co-benefits           Delivery and
associated with the installation and operation of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems on coal-fired power     Applications
plants. In 2000, EPRI estimated industry mercury emissions, and identified a big gap in knowledge about the
effects of SCR catalysts in mercury speciation and removal. Rather than wait until the next year to begin work on
this, some member utilities expedited this project by cofunding the work right away. This work has indicated that,
at least for bituminous coals, a SCR system can convert elemental mercury into oxidized form, which can then be
removed in the downstream flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system. This work has indicated that it may be
possible to achieve 80-90% mercury removal. Another unexpected result of this testing was the indication that
the operation of the SCR system may reduce the reemissions of mercury from the FGD system and hence,
provide a further incremental improvement in mercury removal.

Prior to the development of the HRA Calculator, a variety of methodologies were used to perform HRA for              Technology Transfer
probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs). The results could vary widely when results between similar plants were
compared or even when actions within the same plant—evaluated by different analysts—were compared. The
HRA Calculator software was developed to facilitate a standardized approach to human reliability analysis. With
Dr. Elawar’s guidance, the HRA Users Group has worked for five years to improve utilities’ ability to perform
HRA. As a result, most of the prior deficiencies have been corrected. The software is being used by three
quarters of the industry and provides an adequate, consistent HRA.

UNESA recognized the value of using EPRI’s NDE performance demonstration technology infrastructure to                  Technology Transfer
maximize the effectiveness of its NDE performance demonstration methodology requirements. Within Spain, in-
service inspection is ruled according to ASME Section XI, including Appendix VIII. To address the requirements
of Appendix VIII, UNESA prepared a qualification methodology that integrates the qualification methodology
based on the European Network for Inspection Qualification (ENIQ) with the performance demonstration
requirements in ASME Section XI Appendix VIII as implemented by EPRI for the Performance Demonstration
Initiative (PDI). UNESA’s foresight provided the Spanish utilities and other EPRI members with a program that
recognizes ASME Section XI Appendix VIII-qualified in-service inspection resources qualified at EPRI. This
avoided the cost to the Spanish utilities of having to duplicate an infrastructure already available at EPRI and has
added resources to the available pool of qualified NDE personnel, which will benefit all EPRI-member utilities.

After experiencing a leak in the fuel oil piping which runs near Brauning Lake and supplies the boilers at the        Technology Transfer
Braunig plant, CPS asked EPRi's Fossil NDE Center for a way to inspect fuel-oil piping for corrosion without
removing insulation. The Fossil NDE Center proposed a new long-range, guided-wave magnetostricftive sensor
(MsS) system. The NDE center has recently evaluated the MsS system, developed by Southwest Research
Institute with good results. Without MsS CPS only realistic option would have been removal of insulation over
the 3 miles of pipe for inspection, so CPS jumped at the chance to try the new technology so that they could
identify heavily corroded locations before the fuel oil contaminated the popular Braunig Lake.

The three sponsoring utilities have applied for ESPs for possible new nuclear power plant facilities in the central Technology Transfer
and eastern United States (CEUS). 10CFR Part 100.23 sets forth principal requirements that define the standard
used by the NRC in its evaluation of the suitability of a proposed site and the adequacy of the design bases. It is
emphasized that uncertainties must be addressed through an appropriate analysis, such as a probabilistic
seismic hazard analysis (PSHA). One element addressed in the estimation of safe shutdown earthquake (SSE)
ground motions for an ESP application is strong ground motion attenuation. In the 1989 EPRI CEUS seismic
hazard study, the ground motion element was found to be the largest contributor to uncertainty in PSHA. Since
the 1989 EPRI study, substantial work has been conducted to improve understanding and engineering estimation
of ground motion. The objective of this project, supported by the three utilities, was to develop an updated
representation of earthquake ground motion attenuation and its uncertainty that is appropriate for use in a PSHA
for hard-rock site conditions in the CEUS. The resulting CEUS ground motion model was used by the three ESP
applicants in their PSHA.R&D has been quite challenging for new plants for a number of reasons. First, seismic Technology Transfer
We must admit, seismic
R&D has long been a challenge for all nuclear plants. Second, considerations for siting new plants have not
been addressed since the early 1990s. Third, seismic R&D for siting new plants has not been undertaken by the
industry since that time; and, finally, there has been a substantial amount of work done by the USGS and other
researchers indicating overall that their older estimates may have been a little optimistic. When EPRI was asked
in 2001 to pick-up the pieces it laid down in the seismic area back in the early 1990s and to help the Early Site
Permit (ESP) applicants prepare to perform Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessments (PSHAs) for their sites,
we knew it would be a challenging and exciting task. For example, EPRI's PSHA code was an IBM mainframe
version stored away on a 9-track tape in a box in EPRI's warehouse. The three applicant companies and
individuals responsible for this R&D are standing here today. Mike Bourgeois, Tom Mundy and Marvin Smith
were responsible for working with EPRI as they tried to restart seismic R&D efforts from ground zero to support
the timely submittal of ESP applications. There were programmatic as well as technical uncertainties. In addition Technology Transfer

Buried piping systems in nuclear power plants were designed to match the life of the expected service of the          Technology Transfer
nuclear station. Accordingly, specially designed facilities to enable pipe wall-thickness condition assessment
were not put in place.
As utilities extend the service life of the plant, issues related to the buried pipe condition have been discussed at
the regulatory level. Also, the need to establish the piping condition has received heightened scrutiny with the
reporting of undetected radioactive contamination of groundwater at several plants.
In response, EPRI has pursued a comprehensive program to develop NDE technology and vehicle delivery
system to enable the examination of buried piping under the conditions currently found at the plants, including
access through man-holes and tolerating the presence of mud, coatings, or liners.
Rachel Doss and Steve Lefler became champions of the initiative and have provided key support by arranging for

The industry was found to be operating a factor of two beyond the experience base for control rod swelling. As a Technology Transfer
result, programs were initiated to acquire data to guide safe operation. The team at Duke, led by Tracy Saville
and James Boshers, identified control rod swelling outside of the current experience base as a potential issue in
PWRs. They then supported EPRI in a utility survey and confirmed that a number of plants were already beyond
the experience base used to design the control rods. The results of the survey were used to gain support for the
project from other utilities and identify the lead plant for a hot cell campaign to characterize control rod
performance near end of life. Rods were shipped from Duke’s Oconee plant and are currently undergoing
destructive examination. The results from this program will support improved performance predictions and
optimized control rod designs. Duke is already using the preliminary hot cell results to guide decisions on the
operation of its current rods and the purchase of new control rods.

demonstrating the technology’s viability in significantly mitigating steam generator fouling. By effectively reducing
the accumulation of corrosion products in the steam generators, material corrosion concerns are markedly
decreased due to the avoidance of flow-restricted areas that lead to chemistry environments with concentrated
corrosion-inducing impurities. This allows the plant to achieve maximum useful life of the steam generators with
improved reliability and availability and provides a cost-effective innovation to existing plants. Despite the very
positive outcome from the previous trial at ANO-2, application of the dispersant technology needed an industry
champion to ―step up‖ and perform the next phase of work toward industrywide use: a long-term trial in
replacement steam generators. Duke collaborated with EPRI to qualify the application of dispersant for a long-
term trial at McGuire Unit 2 in coordination with its NSSS vendor, providing the means to further qualify this
promising technology for the industry.

Leadership in implementing "PWR Restart Power Ramp Rate Restriction Analysis" in Duke plants                          Technology Transfer




The industry was found to be operating a factor of two beyond the experience base for control rod swelling. As a Technology Transfer
result, programs were initiated to acquire data to guide safe operation. The team at Duke, led by Tracy Saville
and James Boshers, identified control rod swelling outside of the current experience base as a potential issue in
PWRs. They then supported EPRI in a utility survey and confirmed that a number of plants were already beyond
the experience base used to design the control rods. The results of the survey were used to gain support for the
project from other utilities and identify the lead plant for a hot cell campaign to characterize control rod
performance near end of life. Rods were shipped from Duke’s Oconee plant and are currently undergoing
destructive examination. The results from this program will support improved performance predictions and
optimized control rod designs. Duke is already using the preliminary hot cell results to guide decisions on the
operation of its current rods and the purchase of new control rods.

Information exchange of EPRI's flow-accelerated corrosion programs in Asia.                                          Technology Transfer


This ANP review group, consisting of radwaste engineers, site radwaste managers, and corporate radwaste               Technology Transfer
managers, generated significant ideas on how to improve performance and reduce operating costs for AP1000
and economic simplified boiling water reactor (ESBWR) plants. These experiences brought a philosophy of
―maximum flexibility with a minimum of permanent equipment‖ that was the driving force behind the group’s
success. The group improved existing and developed new radwaste system designs for AP1000 and ESBWR
plants and significantly improved operating performance through the incorporation of mobile processing systems
into new plant designs. By following this team’s recommendations through construction, this ANP review group
will be able to advertise the new nuclear plant fleet’s top performance in waste minimization and effluent quality.
Limited accessibility to radioactive Class B and Class C waste disposal facilities will be a chief concern facing the Technology Transfer
industry in the next couple of years. Opportunities exist for decreasing generation of this type of waste through
innovative media, operational practices, and volume reduction methods. The award recipients assisted EPRI in
evaluating various operational practices to reduce Class B/C wet waste by providing detailed information
regarding their station initiatives. Individual stations are encouraged to use the results from this project to
develop their own Class B/C waste reduction initiative. This project is the first part of an EPRI initiative to
develop techniques and technologies to reduce the generation and accumulation of radioactive Class B/C
wastes.

Jean Salin and Alain LeBrun have successfully collaborated with EPRI in the development, evaluation, and             Technology Transfer
application of advanced ultrasonic phased array inspection technology. In addition, Salin, Birac, and Cattant
have consistently provided EPRI with valuable information on technology pertaining to reactor pressure vessel
head and Alloy 182/82 weld inspection. They have, without hesitation, provided information, results and advice to
EPRI for this high-priority activity.

the definition of EPRI’s Plant Information Integration and Evaluation Strategic Action Plan




The integration of the material program covers several projects, ranging from surface film studies to studies on    Technology Transfer
fracture resistance and crack growth rate in heat-affected zones. The integrated program also includes
mechanistic and modeling studies as well as the critical follow-on to the corrosion research ―gap‖ studies. Overall
savings to EPRI R&D funding will exceed $3M over the next two years. In addition, EDF and EPRI are now in the
process of coordinating key activities in PWR secondary chemistry that will yield savings exceeding $1M per
year. The advanced PRA studies focus on analytical methods and software tools that address new challenges in
risk analysis. These challenges include a more complete definition of the scope of common cause failures
models and their quantitative modeling, treatment of PRA uncertainties, applications of importance measures,
and development of advanced tools for facilitating configuration risk management. Challenges also include the
coordination of fire PRA and asset management methods, databases, and tools. Savings to EPRI associated
with this partnership exceed $1M per year. Meaningful participation of the EDF R&D staff on EPRI steering
committees, workshops, and advisory meetings has been of significant value. The I&C modernization joint

Each of these leaders has committed significant internal resources at their own risk to ensure the success of this Technology Transfer
cooperation:
They sent senior engineers at EPRI as loan-in for two or more years and they adjusted their own programs to
better coordinate with EPRI R&D. The areas represented by these three leaders cover about 60% of EPRI’s
base program so the potential for further collaboration and technology exchange remains huge.

Assessment Guidelines

The three sponsoring utilities have applied for ESPs for possible new nuclear power plant facilities in the central Technology Transfer
and eastern United States (CEUS). 10CFR Part 100.23 sets forth principal requirements that define the standard
used by the NRC in its evaluation of the suitability of a proposed site and the adequacy of the design bases. It is
emphasized that uncertainties must be addressed through an appropriate analysis, such as a probabilistic
seismic hazard analysis (PSHA). One element addressed in the estimation of safe shutdown earthquake (SSE)
ground motions for an ESP application is strong ground motion attenuation. In the 1989 EPRI CEUS seismic
hazard study, the ground motion element was found to be the largest contributor to uncertainty in PSHA. Since
the 1989 EPRI study, substantial work has been conducted to improve understanding and engineering estimation
of ground motion. The objective of this project, supported by the three utilities, was to develop an updated
representation of earthquake ground motion attenuation and its uncertainty that is appropriate for use in a PSHA
for hard-rock site conditions in the CEUS. The resulting CEUS ground motion model was used by the three ESP

managers, generated significant ideas on how to improve performance and reduce operating costs for AP1000
and economic simplified boiling water reactor (ESBWR) plants. These experiences brought a philosophy of
―maximum flexibility with a minimum of permanent equipment‖ that was the driving force behind the group’s
success. The group improved existing and developed new radwaste system designs for AP1000 and ESBWR
plants and significantly improved operating performance through the incorporation of mobile processing systems
into new plant designs. By following this team’s recommendations through construction, this ANP review group
will be able to advertise the new nuclear plant fleet’s top performance in waste minimization and effluent quality.

River Bend experienced crud-induced fuel failures during cycles 8 and 11. The Entergy team worked with              Technology Transfer
AREVA and EPRI to develop a methodology to capture and analyze corrosion deposit ―flakes‖. This process
resulted in a number of first-of-a-kind observations associated with the failures. Investigations are underway at
other plants to develop industry-wide guidance.
River Bend experienced crud-induced fuel cladding corrosion failures in Cycles 8 and 11. The Cycle 11 failure       Technology Transfer
was limited to fewer fuel bundles, but the failure symptoms were similar to those of the Cycle 8 failure. Heavy
localized deposition of tenacious crud was observed in both cases. At the end of Cycle 11, a new approach to
acquiring and analyzing the crud deposition was taken, which included scraping the fuel rod surface with a new
tool to obtain crud flake samples. Analysis of the tiny flake samples in a hot laboratory enabled a better
understanding of the elemental distribution and microstructure of the crud. Based on the crud data, the effect of
the water chemistry conditions—specifically the concentrations of Fe, Zn, Cu, and silica—on the formation of the
crud and the potential paths leading to the fuel failures have been proposed. The results have provided a sound
technical basis for preventing the future recurrence of similar fuel failures at River Bend or other BWRs. The

This ANP review group, consisting of radwaste engineers, site radwaste managers, and corporate radwaste             Technology Transfer
managers, generated significant ideas on how to improve performance and reduce operating costs for AP1000
and economic simplified boiling water reactor (ESBWR) plants. These experiences brought a philosophy of
―maximum flexibility with a minimum of permanent equipment‖ that was the driving force behind the group’s
success. The group improved existing and developed new radwaste system designs for AP1000 and ESBWR
plants and significantly improved operating performance through the incorporation of mobile processing systems
into new plant designs. By following this team’s recommendations through construction, this ANP review group
will be able to advertise the new nuclear plant fleet’s top performance in waste minimization and effluent quality.

Several BWR plants have experienced leakage due to cracks in control rod drive (CRD) housings located in the Technology Transfer
bottom of the reactor pressure vessel. Methods for repair previously approved by the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission (NRC) involve welding. These techniques are very expensive in terms of equipment development
time, crew mobilization costs and outage time for implementation. They also incur significant radiation dose.
The technical basis for a simpler, faster and cheaper method of repair (roll-expansion) was developed by the
BWRVIP; however, this method was not approved for generic use by the NRC. An ASME Code Case based on
the BWRVIP roll-expansion technique was developed, submitted, and eventually approved by the Code. Greg
Harttraft was instrumental in leading the overall effort (drafting of the Code Case and oversight of its review by
the Code). Fernando Corchon managed the development of test data that was a crucial element of the technical
justification for the Code Case. Approval of the Code Case allows utilities to use the roll-expansion method in
lieu of more costly welded repairs to repair leaking CRD housings.

Reasons for modernization of I&C systems include obsolescence and aging, which lead to difficulties such as        Technology Transfer
degrading reliability and availability, increasing costs to maintain acceptable performance, and lack of
experienced staff for maintenance and engineering. The need for higher reliability and availability as well as
improved performance requires capabilities of digital technology that are not possible or practical with analog
technology. A complete one-step plantwide I&C modernization, including control room modernization, would
achieve significant cost savings compared to a phased approach. This is due to reduced initial capital
investment, reduced equipment and its maintenance, and elimination of all intermediate equipment, engineering,
analyses, licensing, and training that are required in the phased approach. Under the current approach to
modernization, the outage required to complete it in one step is at least six months. However, if it were possible
to perform the complete modernization in an outage of 30 days or less, the one-step modernization would be
practical. Even if a utility does not want to perform a one-step modernization, the results of this study provide
several concepts and simplifications that can reduce both the cost and risk of a phased modernization approach. Technology Transfer

The purpose of the study was to determine background concentrations from some common PAHs in urban                     Delivery and

The three sponsoring utilities have applied for ESPs for possible new nuclear power plant facilities in the central Technology Transfer
and eastern United States (CEUS). 10CFR Part 100.23 sets forth principal requirements that define the standard
used by the NRC in its evaluation of the suitability of a proposed site and the adequacy of the design bases. It is
emphasized that uncertainties must be addressed through an appropriate analysis, such as a probabilistic
seismic hazard analysis (PSHA). One element addressed in the estimation of safe shutdown earthquake (SSE)
ground motions for an ESP application is strong ground motion attenuation. In the 1989 EPRI CEUS seismic
hazard study, the ground motion element was found to be the largest contributor to uncertainty in PSHA. Since
the 1989 EPRI study, substantial work has been conducted to improve understanding and engineering estimation
of ground motion. The objective of this project, supported by the three utilities, was to develop an updated
representation of earthquake ground motion attenuation and its uncertainty that is appropriate for use in a PSHA
for hard-rock site conditions in the CEUS. The resulting CEUS ground motion model was used by the three ESP
applicants in their PSHA.R&D has been quite challenging for new plants for a number of reasons. First, seismic Technology Transfer
We must admit, seismic
R&D has long been a challenge for all nuclear plants. Second, considerations for siting new plants have not
been addressed since the early 1990s. Third, seismic R&D for siting new plants has not been undertaken by the
industry since that time; and, finally, there has been a substantial amount of work done by the USGS and other
researchers indicating overall that their older estimates may have been a little optimistic. When EPRI was asked
in 2001 to pick-up the pieces it laid down in the seismic area back in the early 1990s and to help the Early Site
Permit (ESP) applicants prepare to perform Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessments (PSHAs) for their sites,
we knew it would be a challenging and exciting task. For example, EPRI's PSHA code was an IBM mainframe
version stored away on a 9-track tape in a box in EPRI's warehouse. The three applicant companies and
individuals responsible for this R&D are standing here today. Mike Bourgeois, Tom Mundy and Marvin Smith
were responsible for working with EPRI as they tried to restart seismic R&D efforts from ground zero to support
the timely submittal of ESP applications. There were programmatic as well as technical uncertainties. In addition

Doing a complete plant I&C and control room modernization in one step has many benefits; e.g. reduced cost,            Technology Transfer
risk, training, and elimination of special configurations required by phased modernization approach over several
outages - if it could be done within 30 days or less. The awardees provided valuable plant-specific (Byron)
information and essential insights to the project that made sure that the results of the feasibility study thoroughly
took into account utility needs and practical constraints. Although the supplier and A/E concluded that the
modernization could be done under ideal conditions in 30 days, the insights from the awardees pointed out
practicalities that said the more realistic scenario would require 60 to 75 days. Insights, concepts and
simplifications gained from this effort will help utilities be more efficient when doing a phased modernization of
I&C and control rooms.

posts, manholes, fence posts and footers for lighting poles had to be designed into the cap to protect its integrity
and prevent cap penetrations. The cap was compacted in six-inch lifts to rigorous standards. Groundwater
monitoring wells were also installed throughout the site. A comprehensive cap performance monitoring area was
also designed and built, which collects data on cap performance for comparison with EPRI water percolation
modeling software.

 Georgia Power and SCS were the first to apply EPRI's new toxicological data on the cancer slope factor for            Delivery and
B(a)P; EPRI's recent data suggest that the actual cancer slope factor is about six times smaller than that in          Applications
EPA's (IRIS) database. This means the allowable B(a)P concentrations in soils can be six times higher and still
provide the same degree of environmental and human health protection. Under the direction of Georgia Power,
SCS staff did an analysis at two sites to estimate the value of changes in B(a)P soil cleanup target levels. The
results of these analyses demonstrated that in both cases, the volume of soil requiring excavation and disposal
could be drastically reduced (by 56% and 93%, respectively) if the revised slope factor were adopted by
regulators. By doing this evaluation, Georgia Power has clearly established the value of EPRI R&D to the
industry. Georgia Power is continuing their active support of EPRI efforts to have default values modified in

EPRI is recognized as being a world leader in developing NDE performance demonstration technology. Faced             Technology Transfer
with new regulatory requirements in Japan for NDE Performance Demonstration this team recognized the value
of collaborating with EPRI to rapidly develop and implement an NDE performance demonstration program.
Working together with EPRI staff this team studied EPRI Performance Demonstration technology. This enabled
them to quickly learn and subsequently develop their own infrastructure in time to meet new and demanding
regulatory requirements.
By studying the EPRI methodology for performance demonstration and then modeling their system in a similar
manner the Japanese utilities have developed a program that will allow for the results of the qualifications to be
recognized by other EPRI members utilities with similar requirements. This strategy has the potential to benefit all
EPRI members by adding to the pool of qualified NDE resources for ISI.
This effort helps show how the power of collaboration as the most effective way for nuclear utilities to meet
challenging demands even across international borders and
because of the synergy of the EPRI member's performance demonstration programs
provides further opportunities for increased collaboration among all EPRI members.

For leadership in the development and for being a first demonstrator of the Condition Driven Fleet Scanning            Technology Transfer
Methodology for Substation Transformers.

Developed an Analytical Approach to Condition Evaluation of Transformer Fleets: Utilities are getting increasingly
concerned about the aging population of their transformers. They need a methodology that can rank their
transformers based on their thermal aging resulting from their loading conditions, short circuit and lightning
exposure in their operating environment, condition indications provided by DGA tests and the criticality of the load
connected to their units. An analytical approach was developed to evaluate an aging fleet of Substation
Transformers based on their vulnerability, operating environment and connectivity in a utility's power delivery
system. The output of this analytical methodology prescribes a relative rank which can be used for identifying
replacement/refurbishment candidates along with a battery of optimal condition assessment tests.

For leadership in the development and for being a first demonstrator of the Condition Driven Fleet Scanning        Technology Transfer
Methodology for Substation Transformers.

Developed an Analytical Approach to Condition Evaluation of Transformer Fleets: Utilities are getting increasingly
concerned about the aging population of their transformers. They need a methodology that can rank their
transformers based on their thermal aging resulting from their loading conditions, short circuit and lightning
exposure in their operating environment, condition indications provided by DGA tests and the criticality of the load
connected to their units. An analytical approach was developed to evaluate an aging fleet of Substation
Transformers based on their vulnerability, operating environment and connectivity in a utility's power delivery
system. The output of this analytical methodology prescribes a relative rank which can be used for identifying
replacement/refurbishment candidates along with a battery of optimal condition assessment tests.

Capillary electrophoresis is a very promising technology for detection of ionic impurities at much lower            Technology Transfer
concentrations than possible using convention IC technology, and with much quicker detection times and less
generation of liquid radwaste. The results of this work provide additional support for continued development and
optimization of this promising technology for industry wide application. NPPD support has been instrumental in
moving this technology forward.
Plant personnel are continually challenged with accurately measuring very low levels of ionic impurities in BWR Technology Transfer
process streams. EPRI research has extended the lower limit of detection (LLD) possible with CE through the
use of indirect UV detection. It is estimated that the ultimate LLD for a commercial instrument may well be in the
range of tens of parts per trillion (one part in 1012). The application of CE is anticipated to ultimately provide
plant personnel with not only the ability to detect much lower levels of ionic contaminants than is possible with
conventional ion chromatography (IC), but also the ability to do it much more quickly and with significantly less
liquid radwaste generation. NPPD personnel provided significant support in both setting up and conducting the in-
plant field demonstration at Cooper, which provided additional data confirming the significant advantages of CE.
This in-plant demonstration was a necessary step in advancing this promising technology.

its important components. The components could then be ranked in terms of their potential for tripping or
derating the plant, leading to lost production over the remaining plant operating term. Forecasted lost production,
including uncertainty ranges, is converted to economic risk. The GRA evaluation is used to review and prioritize
preventive maintenance, provide input to proposed designs for system modifications, and produce enterprisewide

Assessment (PRA) technology, that has led to national wide recognition of the technology.

These applications lead to national wide recognize of PRA. For example, NERC has mentioned PRA in their long
term reliability assessment workshop. These projects may lead to other research projects in 2008 to perform a
probabilistic risk based reliability assessment for the entire New York State power system with the collaboration
from NYPA, ConEd and LIPA; for Tri-State on its maintenance prioritization; for KCPL on its probabilistic N-K
long-term planning.

NYPA's cofiring tests was the first time biodiesel has been fired in such a large unit. Using EPRI staff and      Technology Transfer
technology to understand, manage, and minimize the risk allowed NYPA to show that biodiesel can successfully
be blended with oil and fired in a utility scale combustion system. NYPA has also been studying deployment of
small, wood-fueled combined heat and power gasifiers for two of their customers. Using the results of the EPRI
BIG European Technology Mission results allowed NYPA to more effectively screen technologies and focus their
internal and external efforts. Additionally, the experience gathered provided substantial background with allowed
NYPA to identify specific advantages and disadvantages of various supplier offerings and technologies.

This team led the development and application of the EPRI risk informed inspection methodology for a first ever        Technology Transfer

was chiefly instrumental in ensuring that an Asset Management Group was formed to sustain the implementation
of the recommendations and RCM implementation.
Through an integrated research program, the nominees have worked with specialists within the scientific                Delivery and
community and have discovered state-of-the-science information on the subject of cyanide, including                    Applications
identification of an entire new cyanide species. Their efforts have resulted in new information on existing
analytical methods and new approaches for the study of cyanide that have been presented to the USEPA for
consideration. They did not stop at the laboratory. They took their new information into the field and applied it to
their sites in pioneering remedial investigations. We expect that the outcome of this field work could produce a
strong case for the natural attenuation of cyanide that could save the industry tens of millions of dollars in
remediation costs.

For multiple decades, both while working for Northeast Utilities and Dominion, Paul has provided strategic and         Delivery and
tactical leadership to EPRI and its members with respect to critical water resource research. Paul's most recent       Applications
accomplishment was the organization and editing along with Doug Dixon of the American Fisheries Society
(AFS) Connecticut River Monograph. This monograph traces the ecological history of the Connecticut River in
the vicinity of the Yankee Connecticut Nuclear Plant from pre-construction, throughout its operation lifetime, and
to its ultimate decommissioning and disassembling. The original Monograph was published by the AFS in 1976;
Paul decided to 're-visit" the original monograph predictions by organizing a research team of the original
Connecticut River Ecological Study scientists. The new monograph to be published by AFS in late 2004
documents how the long term operation of a power plant, through the intelligent application of water resource
science and technology, can be harmonious with its surrounding ecosystem.

The industry was called upon by the NRC to review the DG-1145 (Combined Operating License Application) to          Technology Transfer
ensure that the guidance is 1) clear, 2) consistent with NRC regulations, 3) workable in terms of the information
expected to be available time of COLA, and 4) appropriate in terms of the information necessary for NRC to
make its required findings for COL.
An EPRI coordinated team of Utility Radwaste and Radiation Protection experts participated in a very detailed
review of Chapters 11 (Radwaste Management) and 12 (Radiation Protection) of the DG-1145. This team
produced more than 100 comments with the main objective of ensuring that the DG-1145 provides the COLA
applicant with the most up to date and relevant information needed to efficiently and successfully submit a COLA.
These utility representatives participated in this very agressive review by reviewing the relevant chapters of the
DG-1145 in detail, providing written comments, and also participating in over 6 conference calls in a span of 1.5
months. During the review process these representatives provided valuable insight, experience, and resources
needed for a
comprehensive review of the DG-1145.

contributed greatly to the identification, development and implementation of key inspection.
For using EPRI NDE Center technology and staff effectively to continue to operate with existing feedwater              Technology Transfer
heaters and eliminate the need for additional condenser eddy current testing. NDE Center support is allowing
DAEC to operate with a degraded feedwater heater because DAEC is licensed for an extended power uprate, but
eco-nomics don’t support replacement of feedwater heaters necessary for higher thermal limits. DAEC will not
have to replace four feedwater heaters as a result of NDE Center assistance. This is a big dollar savings,
recognizing that the extended power uprate was scrapped because of the cost of feedwater heater replacements.
Furthermore, DAEC will be able to eliminate ―B‖ Condenser eddy current testing during its Spring 2003 outage,
an estimated savings of 7 days.
Several BWR plants have experienced leakage due to cracks in control rod drive (CRD) housings located in the           Technology Transfer
bottom of the reactor pressure vessel. Methods for repair previously approved by the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission (NRC) involve welding. These techniques are very expensive in terms of equipment development
time, crew mobilization costs and outage time for implementation. They also incur significant radiation dose.
The technical basis for a simpler, faster and cheaper method of repair (roll-expansion) was developed by the
BWRVIP; however, this method was not approved for generic use by the NRC. An ASME Code Case based on
the BWRVIP roll-expansion technique was developed, submitted, and eventually approved by the Code. Greg
Harttraft was instrumental in leading the overall effort (drafting of the Code Case and oversight of its review by
the Code). Fernando Corchon managed the development of test data that was a crucial element of the technical
justification for the Code Case. Approval of the Code Case allows utilities to use the roll-expansion method in lieu
of more costly welded repairs to repair leaking CRD housings.

10CFR Part 61, ―Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste,‖ Sub-Part 61.55 defines                Technology Transfer
radioactive waste classifications for near-surface land disposal. Waste Class B/C wet waste, including filter and
ion exchange media, is one of the most expensive radioactive wastes routinely generated by U.S. commercial
reactors. A total of 90% of the U.S. industry is challenged with the loss of Class B/C low-level waste (LLW)
disposition access after 2008. This project is the first part of an EPRI initiative to develop techniques and
technologies to reduce the generation and accumulation of Class B/C waste. Opportunities exist for decreasing
generation of this type of waste through innovative media, operational practices, and volume reduction methods.
This project reviewed various station initiatives for practical reductions of Class B/C waste. Considerations for on-
site storage were factored into some of the analyses and include cost factors related to on-site media movement,
packaging, dewatering, volume reduction (if used), and final transfer to a storage facility. Individual stations are
encouraged to use the results from this project to develop their own Class B/C waste reduction initiatives.

NDE plays many and varied roles in the nuclear power industry. An understanding of these roles helps define the Technology Transfer
strategic contribution that NDE can make toward accomplishing EPRI’s strategic objectives. NDE serves five
main functions in the nuclear power industry:
• Pre-service and periodic in-service inspection of components to satisfy regulatory requirements
• Characterization of critical component condition to identify degradation well before failure is possible
• Monitoring of the fleet of operating plants for the early identification of material degradation trends
• Guidance of accurate and timely strategic decisions on whether and when to replace, repair, or continue
operation of components whose failure would affect safety, availability, operational efficiency, or personnel safety
• Development and implementation of rational and effective inspection strategies
Many key industry programs rely on NDE to fulfill their missions and objectives. This technology transfer award is
made in recognition of the team’s effort and dedication to integrating the EPRI NDE Center Program with major
industry issue programs—Materials Reliability, Equipment Reliability, and Performance Demonstration Initiative.

MRP-139 represents one of the first proactive guidelines for materials issued under NEI 03-08.                          Technology Transfer
MRP-139 handles the potential for PWSCC in Alloy 82/182 butt welds by mitigating before the degradation sets
in or inspecting frequently enough to manage the degradation.
Achieving consensus and approval on this guideline was very difficult in the absence of widespread butt weld
degradation in the field.
There were many presentations to a wide variety of committees as the guideline was moving through the
approval process.
Dana’s experience with other degradation management strategies (BWR pipe cracking, PWR steam generators,
Flow accelerated corrosion) was critical to the success of the guideline.
Currently we are inspecting these butt welds and finding indications with NDE instead of by leakage. Where we
can’t complete good inspections, we are pre-emptively mitigating the butt welds.
MRP-139 represents one of the first proactive guidelines for materials issued under NEI 03-08.                          Technology Transfer
MRP-139 handles the potential for PWSCC in Alloy 82/182 butt welds by mitigating before the degradation sets
in or inspecting frequently enough to manage the degradation.
Achieving consensus and approval on this guideline was very difficult in the absence of widespread butt weld
degradation in the field.
There were many presentations to a wide variety of committees as the guideline was moving through the
approval process.
Dana’s experience with other degradation management strategies (BWR pipe cracking, PWR steam generators,
Flow accelerated corrosion) was critical to the success of the guideline.

These award winners recognized the strategic role that NDE plays in managing today’s urgent material                    Technology Transfer
degradation issues. They worked through the APWG and Materials Initiative structures to ensure that industry
priorities were clearly identified and aligned so that NDE resources could focus on the most critical problems and
to ensure that industry commitments would be met. Their work has integrated NDE with all major material issue
groups, resulting in an efficient and powerful resource for the nuclear industry

PWR primary zinc application provides plant operators with a powerful method to reduce both the onset and        Technology Transfer
continued degradation of primary water stress corrosion cracking, reduce plant radiation fields that impact site
personnel, and ultimately reduce corrosion product transport to the fuel.
This work provides an exceptionally thorough treatise of the state-of-knowledge regarding PWR primary zinc
application, developed via an industry collaboration including EPRI, utility personnel, NSSS vendors and
contractors.
It provides plant operators, chemists in particular, with comprehensive guidance concerning all aspects of PWR
zinc application.

Early in the development of the Eco-Solutions program Ben White understood and acknowledged the opportunity Delivery and
represented by proactive ecological asset management at Progress Energy. Ben developed an interdisciplinary Applications
team of real estate, environmental, legal and new business development expertise from across the company. He
invited the EPRI team to interact with the Progress Energy team, leading to a decision to examine the potential of
eco-asset management at the company’s South River property. All of this occurred over a period of about a year,
in the midst of a corporate merger, reorganization and realignment of internal responsibilities. Throughout the
process, Ben remained a proponent of the process, believing there were undiscovered opportunities at South
River and other Progress Energy properties. The EPRI team, discovering that the property could be managed for
wetlands expansion, riparian stream zone configuration, conservation banking and other eco-asset values,
estimated a potential for the property to deliver well over 4 times the book value.

10CFR Part 61, ―Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste,‖ Sub-Part 61.55 defines                Technology Transfer
radioactive waste classifications for near-surface land disposal. Waste Class B/C wet waste, including filter and
ion exchange media, is one of the most expensive radioactive wastes routinely generated by U.S. commercial
reactors. A total of 90% of the U.S. industry is challenged with the loss of Class B/C low-level waste (LLW)
disposition access after 2008. This project is the first part of an EPRI initiative to develop techniques and
technologies to reduce the generation and accumulation of Class B/C waste. Opportunities exist for decreasing
generation of this type of waste through innovative media, operational practices, and volume reduction methods.
This project reviewed various station initiatives for practical reductions of Class B/C waste. Considerations for on-
site storage were factored into some of the analyses and include cost factors related to on-site media movement,
packaging, dewatering, volume reduction (if used), and final transfer to a storage facility. Individual stations are
encouraged to use the results from this project to develop their own Class B/C waste reduction initiatives.
Limited accessibility to radioactive Class B and Class C waste disposal facilities will be a chief concern facing the Technology Transfer
industry in the next couple of years. Opportunities exist for decreasing generation of this type of waste through
innovative media, operational practices, and volume reduction methods. The award recipients assisted EPRI in
evaluating various operational practices to reduce Class B/C wet waste by providing detailed information
regarding their station initiatives. Individual stations are encouraged to use the results from this project to
develop their own Class B/C waste reduction initiative. This project is the first part of an EPRI initiative to
develop techniques and technologies to reduce the generation and accumulation of radioactive Class B/C
wastes.
For championing the field implementation of EPRI developed next-generation manual phased array ultrasonic             Technology Transfer

The SCS team, lead by Steve Wilson, has supported and evaluated key EPRI mercury control technologies                   Technology Transfer
including sorbent injection, TOXECON, and MerCAP. Many of these technologies are first-of-a-kind

These award recipients have been in the forefront of the PISCES project to evaluate the mercury co-benefits             Delivery and
associated with the installation and operation of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems on coal-fired power       Applications
plants. In 2000, EPRI estimated industry mercury emissions, and identified a big gap in knowledge about the
effects of SCR catalysts in mercury speciation and removal. Rather than wait until the next year to begin work on
this, some member utilities expedited this project by cofunding the work right away. This work has indicated that,
at least for bituminous coals, a SCR system can convert elemental mercury into oxidized form, which can then be
removed in the downstream flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system. This work has indicated that it may be
possible to achieve 80-90% mercury removal. Another unexpected result of this testing was the indication that
the operation of the SCR system may reduce the reemissions of mercury from the FGD system and hence,
provide a further incremental improvement in mercury removal.
Full-Scale Demonstration Tests of Mercury Controls. The recognized members and their respective companies
played a vital role in fostering the field testing of potential mercury controls. The contributions made by each
individual include: (1) obtained company and plant approval and cofunding for the tests, (2) served to facilitate the
tests at the plants without disrupting the plant's primary role to produce electricity, (3) helped to analyze and
explain the test results, and (4) collaborated as a team to share experiences and resolve technical issues for the
greater benefit of all the participants.

Donna was the lead technical person and driving force involved in the development of LARK-TRIPP (LT)              Delivery and
RY2000. When the LT software was originally released in 1999, it had few if any users other than Southern         Applications
Company. Without a champion, it would likely have fallen totally out of use. For the last two years Donna has
worked with the software developer to substantially improve the software functionality for utilities (including
development of calculation methodologies), has extolled its virtues at EPRI and EEI meetings, and has worked
with individual utilities by telephone to assist in their use of the software. As a result, LT RY2000 gained
increasing acceptance for TRI reporting; EPRI had 17 utility participants at a workshop held in Dallas in
September 2001. Users now include both EPRI member and nonmember (direct sales) companies. We expect
the use of LT will continue to grow.

The Paradise power plant was planning to install SCR catalysts as well as switch/blend PRB coal with Kentucky         Delivery and
coal. Greg Brodie and Kirby Tapp identified potential environmental concerns with these future power plant            Applications
operational changes, namely ammonia slip from the SCR catalysts and the higher alkalinity of the PRB coals.
Both took an active role in initiating internal TVA research projects as well as an EPRI project designed to obtain
sufficient data to identify issues. The resulting data is now being used in the PISCES Model to estimate
wastewater concentrations for a number of future plant operating scenarios. This includes the various
combinations of the 3 units either having or not having SCR and with different levels of ammonia slip, as well as
the combinations of the 3 units burning either a Kentucky or PRB coal.
Jennifer, Nick and Greg sponsored and organized workshops and classes on WARMF for TVA staff, USEPA                   Delivery and
Region IV and the State of Tennessee. They also designed a case study for the Oostanaula Watershed. The               Applications
leadership and vision of these three has placed TVA in an excellent position to help direct TMDLs in the
Tennessee Valley and be a major partner in future economic growth in the Valley. In addition, their efforts have
significantly enhanced the value of WARMF for the entire EPRI membership.
Greg is a true champion of the use of passive treatment technologies (e.g., constructed wetland treatment             Delivery and
systems and anoxic limestone drains) within the electric utility industry for the treatment of wastewater. He had     Applications
the foresight in 1984 to develop and begin the implementation of passive treatment technologies within the TVA
system. Today, TVA has 19 treatment systems in place treating a variety of discharges, saving TVA
approximately $50 million dollars in avoided chemical treatment costs since 1985 when the first constructed
wetland treatment system was built . He also saw, in the case of constructed wetlands, that these systems could
provide ecological value when built in areas were the land had been degraded through mining activities. Greg is
tireless in promoting passive treatment technologies through the sponsorship of workshops, conferences and
journal articles, and has designed and installed about 20 other passive treatment systems nation-wide. He is a
strong partner with EPRI in EPRI’s passive treatment technologies research program.

The Team provided exemplary professional and technical expertise and performance needed to implement and                 Delivery and
complete the study, Paradise Fossil Plant Fly Ash Pond Pilot Pond Ammonia Removal Study . The project                    Applications
addresses a growing and significant environmental issue facing the electric utility industry related to selective
catalytic reduction for NOx control, and the potential release of ammonia to the aquatic environment related to
SCR operations. The performance of the Team, which included addressing tasks and issues involving long-term
and unscheduled travel, adverse climatic conditions, unforeseen and significant technical and fiscal constraints
among many other adversities, represented a high standard of project management and completion deserving of
D&A recognition.
These award recipients have been in the forefront of the PISCES project to evaluate the mercury co-benefits              Delivery and
associated with the installation and operation of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems on coal-fired power        Applications
plants. In 2000, EPRI estimated industry mercury emissions, and identified a big gap in knowledge about the
effects of SCR catalysts in mercury speciation and removal. Rather than wait until the next year to begin work on
this, some member utilities expedited this project by cofunding the work right away. This work has indicated that,
at least for bituminous coals, a SCR system can convert elemental mercury into oxidized form, which can then be
removed in the downstream flue gas desulfurization (FGD) system. This work has indicated that it may be
possible to achieve 80-90% mercury removal. Another unexpected result of this testing was the indication that
the operation of the SCR system may reduce the reemissions of mercury from the FGD system and hence,
provide a further incremental improvement in mercury removal.
Mr. Burnett was instrumental in convincing TVA management to utilize the PISCES model in estimating Toxic                Delivery and
Release Inventory combustion-related releases. Utilities became subject to the TRI reporting requirements in             Applications
1998. Mr. Burnett worked extensively with EPRI personnel to utilize and refine the PISCES model for this use.
He was also instrumental in coordinating with other coal-fired utilities in using the model as well as ensuring that
technical details were consistently handled, regardless of the estimation process. His attention to detail and
extensive technical background, working with EPRI staff, led to many improvements increasing the value of this
model to TVA and other member utilities.
Mr. Burnett has provided insight into significant findings of EPRI research over the last several years, with a clear-   Delivery and
headed approach to where to emphasize our research. In one instance, he helped clarify the design of a critical          Applications
case study for multimedia toxicants, allowing the work to go forward in a timely manner and provide important
data to the EPRI national database.
Fine particles (PM2.5) and regional haze are two issues of great concern to the electric utility industry. TVA,          Delivery and
working with EPRI and the Dept. of Energy, applied new measurement technologies to the study of fines at the             Applications
Class 1 Supersite called Look Rock in the Great Smokey Mountains. Tom Burnett sold the idea of the PM2.5
Supersite to all the organizations. Dr. Tanner tested various methods for measuring PM2.5, collected important
data relating to the abundance of 14C, and developed an in-house monitoring device for gaseous ammonia.
There is a desperate need to test regulatory models of fine particles using real-world data. Data collected under
the direction of Dr. Tanner at the Look Rock Supersite will provide a valuable point of reference for evaluating
these atmospheric models.
EPRI, DOE/EPA,, and individual companies have been collecting mercury emissions data for some time, but key
gaps remain and the technical community can not yet extrapolate results from an individual unit to that class of
boilers/fuels. To overcome this limitation, many power companies are testing their own units. Often these tests
are on fuels and air pollution controls that other companies are also testing. The nominees recognized the
wastefulness of these overlaps and the potential to save money n the future by collaborating to find sites that
cover the gaps, and they asked EPRI to create MerCCIG to address these issues/opportunities.

The cleaning demonstrates Browns Ferry’s commitment to both fuel performance and reduced personnel                  Technology Transfer
exposure because of the significant radioactive source term removal. The TVA team identified EPRI’s UFC
technology as a way to transfer once- and twice-burned fuel from Browns Ferry Unit 2 to Unit 1 (for the upcoming
restart) without transferring the crud. TVA cleaned 94 bundles and captured the crud on 79 filters, which
removed approximately 4200 curies of radioactivity from the system. Without fuel cleaning, a large fraction of this
activity would have migrated to the balance of plant and resulted in measurable increases in dose rate. Fuel
cleaning also saved TVA tens of millions of dollars in fuel replacement costs by enabling the reuse of Unit 2 fuel.
This effort by Browns Ferry represents the first reload quantity application of UFC in a BWR.

TVA, working with EPRI, EPA, and a number of universities, set up the Regional Ozone Vegetation Effects               Delivery and
(ROVE) project in 1991 that combines a series of lab, field, and modeling studies. Controlled field studies and       Applications
apparatus were designed to determine physiological and growth responses in mature trees to the impact of
different ozone levels. These studies found that, within species, key physiological processes that drive predictive
response models, such as photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, and respiration, vary between plants of
different age and size. The next step of the project involved ozone uptake and response measurements
collected in natural stands. The last step of the project involved using collected data sets in tree and stand
models to assess how realistic site-level and micro-site environmental variation may be expected to affect the
sensitivity of representative tree species to variations in ozone exposure. To date, this project has produced
more than 25 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters .
