Argentina

Activities in Argentina are conducted under the auspices of the Implementing Arrangement between the Department of Energy of the United States of America (DOE) and the National Atomic Energy Commission of the Argentine Republic (CNEA) for Technical Exchange and Cooperation in the Area of Radioactive and Mixed Waste Management, signed on May 29, 1996. A Joint Coordinating Committee for Radioactive and Mixed Waste Management (JCCRM) was established as the managing body for the arrangement and is responsible for selecting specific joint project activities. At the 1st JCCRM meeting four specific areas of cooperation were agreed upon: Characterization and Retrieval (of spent resins), Separation Methods (e.g. crystalline silicotitinate {CST}), Deactivation and Decommissioning (D&D), and Vitrification Processes. The long-term objective of the arrangement is to open new markets and opportunities for U.S. and Argentine environmental technology companies and to obtain the best technology for EM.

Current projects coordinated under the JCCRM include:
