ATLANTA, May 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:PESI) today announced the successful treatment demonstration of Tritium contaminated equipment and media originating from the Department of Energy's (DOE) Savannah River Site located in Aiken, SC. The demonstration was accomplished at Perma-Fix's Materials & Energy Corporation Facility (M&EC) located in Oak Ridge, TN. This demonstration was necessary to prove that relatively high Tritium containing waste streams that also contain Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous components can be safely managed with minimal to no release of Tritium using non-thermal treatment processes. This was accomplished by designing a closed loop system that captures Tritium and allows it to be managed separately for disposal as low-level radioactive waste. The remaining RCRA portion of the waste was then treated to meet appropriate EPA standards.
