Stewart's New Book Tells Story of Hanford's Most Notorious Tank

June 2006
Congratulations to ETD's Chuck Stewart on the publishing of his book Hanford's Battle with Nuclear Waste Tank SY-101: Bubbles, Toils, and Troubles. The 462-page book tells the story of the origin and eventual remediation of the flammable gas hazard in Hanfordís million-gallon double-shell tank 241-SY-101, a dominating element in DOE nuclear waste management for the last decade of the 20th century. Chuck managed PNNL's activities supporting mitigation of SY-101's flammable gas releases and waste growth from 1993 through 2001. He currently supports PNNLís gas retention and release testing program in scaled process tanks for the Hanford Waste Treatment Plant. The book will soon be available in local bookstores and can be ordered directly from Battelle Press.
