eMWaste® G2 Suites
Waste Tracking and Management System from “Cradle to Grave”
eMWaste® G2 Suites was developed with a workflow in mind that follows most operations in a Waste or Power Generation site. The software was also designed to be flexible enough that deviations from the standard workflow could be incorporated in a daily routine and still result in a completely documented characterization of waste/material and container(s) called Container Profiles. Standard Workflow Material Profiles Before any recording of waste/material characteristics for a Container Profile(s) can begin, a profile for the waste inside the container has to be developed. The Material Profile records the Fingerprint (Nuclides) and all characteristics of a particular Waste Stream that the profile is written for.
The Container Profiles screen is where most of the information recording for waste/materials and Container Profiles(s) begins. Users will enter information that pertains to the Container(s) in the screen and define all the specific characteristics of the Container(s) contents. All Shipping reports pull information from the entries that are made in this screen. Users must be sure that all required fields are populated with the requested information. If information is missing on a specific report, it is likely because it was omitted from the Container Profiles screen. Container characteristics can be copied to other Container Profiles. Container Profiles were designed to be the initial document(s) that records the characteristics of waste inside a Container(s). Because of processing, treatment or overpacking functions that are conducted, a Container could deviate from its initial characterization but these action are all recorded in eMWaste® G2 Suites’ - Change Log. You do not have to change the original Container Profiles record for the container.
While a Container/Waste Item is in storage or after it has been created, it may be determined that the contents of the Container need to be reduced or treated. If so, an Approved – Container/Waste Item would be pulled into this section where additives could be added or a bulking process could be conducted. The process would be recorded in the Change Log. Only the Container/Waste Item into the process needs a prior Approved – Container Profile record. The Container Profiles out of the process will need to be characterized after the overpack is completed and specific characteristics added to it.
It may be determined that a Container needs to be grouped with other Container(s) (Labpack) or placed inside an outer container, or bulked into another container. If so, this function is performed in the Overpack module. An outer Container (Waste Item) is defined in the module and inner Container (Waste Items) are loaded inside the outer Container. After the process is completed it will be necessary to view the outer Container by its “Barcode Number”.
After you create a Container Profile record for a Container/Material and it is Approved, you may Process, or place it in Inventory, or Ship it using the Shipping screen. Select the Container Profile from a list of Approved Container Profiles in the List Of Values (LOV) and build a shipment that results in a shipping document. The shipping documents in eMWaste® G2 Suites include the 540, 541,542, 543, and Uniform Hazardous Waste Material documents. The reports automatically populate using information that has been entered into eMWaste® G2 Suites that relates to the “Barcode Numbers(s)” selected for shipment.
Once a Container Profile has been created, the container is usually sent to storage to await shipment to a disposal facility. This process usually involves moving a Container/Waste Item to a storage area. The location of the Container/Waste Item is loaded in the Container Profile “Details” screen under the “Location” field. This is the beginning location for the Container Profile.
During storage the container is often inventoried. The Container Profiles module can be queried using the Keyword Search field or the Filter to enter the Location field which reveals a full list of every Container/Waste Item in the Location. conducts the inventory process utilizing barcode scanner(s) and produces reconciliation reports. Inventories are conducted on containers that may be onsite for a given period of time and must be tracked.
This section list Inventories that are performed with the Barcode Scanner.
There can be several kinds of Forecast with the “Forecast” module. One is “Forecast Scenarios”. The “Forecast Scenarios” are all Scenarios which cover specific Waste Streams. The “Other Forecast” can show other Waste Streams not included in the original Forecast.
Select Forecasting>Forecasting Scenarios from the “Navigation Bar” (on the left side of your screen). The first screen that shows is the naming field of the different scenarios you choose from with all the names hyperlinked. the columns are, Name(hyperlinked), Facility, Start Year, End Year and Actions. You can copy all fields, copy the spreadsheet to an Excel file, copy all fields in the Forecasting area to Excel or to a PDF for viewing. You can also Create new Forecast. Select the Settings (what shows on the screen you see). From the Actions button you can View, Edit, Print Forecast Report, Print Forecast Received Volume Report, Print Forecast Stored Volume Report, Print Forecast Containers Report, Print Forecast Nuclides Report, Print Nuclides Grouped Report, Print Forecast Elemental Report, Print Forecast Elemental Grouped Report, Print Forecast Bulk Material Report, Print Forecast Bulk Material Grouped Report, and Delete the new entry.
After you select one of the hyperlinks in the “List View” under Name, each column list the “Waste Category”, “Waste Type Code”, “Material Profile”, “Container Type”, “Allocation Factor”, and then begins listing all the years from the Start Year to the End Year showing the changes that are made each year (in this case, in cubic meters). Enter the “Split” percentage and the “VR Factor” for the “Waste Category”.
The Forecast module will tell you, based on your factor, what the estimated waste for the “Waste Stream” is in the year you selected.
At the top of the “Menu Bar” is the name of the Division you are selection the “Forecast” for. The flag (drop-down) tells you where the company is located, the “Print” icon allows you to print everything showing on your screen. The “Expand” Icon give the user a better view of the spreadsheet. The “Arrow” Icon allows the user to log out of the program, and the “Three Bars” icon hides the “Navigation Bar”.
The Compliance Report is selected during characterization of a container or when the container is ready to be shipped. The Compliance Report is a true Report showing the Container, Container Type, Gross Weight, Container Volume, Tare Weight, Waste Volume, Waste Weight, Current Class, Surface Contamination (Alpha and Beta–Gamma), Package Radiation Levels (on- contact, 1meter, and 3 meters), Facility Safety Limit (u-235 Equivalent Grams, U-235 Percent, Category 3 Fraction, NMCA Required), LSA 1 Ratio, LSA 11 Ratio, LSA 111 Ratio, SCO Type and Reason, Reportable Quantity Ratio, Fissile Check, A2/Unity Ratio, Nuclides that Constitute 95% of The A2 Value, Limited Quantity Ratio, Activity Limit for Exempt Consignment Fraction, Activity Concentration for Exempt Materials Fraction.
