Dr. Sue Clark, an internationally known leader in the nuclear sciences and Director of Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM), an Energy Frontier Research Center, has been appointed to a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) committee to evaluate the Department of Energy’s cleanup technology development efforts.

Clark joins 11 fellow experts on the Independent Assessment of Science and Technology for the Department of Energy’s Defense Environmental Cleanup Program committee through the NASEM Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board.

“Finding innovative ways to accelerate remediation and reduce the costs of high-level radioactive waste at Hanford and other locations will serve the state of Washington and the American public,” Clark said. “This committee will assess the science and technology that supports this important DOE mission.”

Over the course of 18 months, the committee is focusing on technology development efforts within DOE’s Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM). Specifically, the National Academies committee will

  • Review DOE-EM's technology development efforts, including how technologies are chosen for development

  • Assess the DOE-EM cleanup program technologies that could result in reduced long-term costs, accelerated schedules, fewer risks, and overall improvements.

The committee’s work will produce a report that contains findings and recommendations for DOE-EM to consider.
