The Idaho Cleanup Project involved installation of an Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU) that implemented a prototype technology. The IWTU processes radioactive acidic sodium-bearing waste and converts it into a solid carbonate product. As engineer of record, SGH designed two of the primary buildings to accommodate the system and supported completion of the project on an expedited schedule.
