Table 32 General Considerations for Containment Building Design Facility Element Design Considerations General considerations for building Building Must be constructed of man-made materials Must provide sufficient structural strength to prevent unit failure Must be completely enclosed (floor/walls/roof) Must have a decontamination area for personnel, equipment, and vehicles Doors/Windows Must be placed so as not to come into contact with waste Must have dust controls to minimise fugitive emissions Contact Surfaces Must be chemically compatible with waste Primary Barrier (floor) Must be constructed of man-made material (typically concrete) Must be structurally sound and chemically compatible with waste General considerations for liquid collection system Primary Barrier Must be sloped toward liquid collection device Liquid Collection System Must allow for removal of waste for proper management Leak Detection System Must detect release of waste at earliest practicable time Secondary Barrier Must be structurally sound and chemically resistant to the waste Must contain and allow for removal of accumulating wastes This is required only for "wet areas" within the Proposal site, but are recommended for both "wet" and "dry areas Note: Adapted from US EPA: Solid Waste and Emergency Response Introduction to Containment Building EPA530-K-05-008 Any containment building would be designed to accommodate the workforce and minimum ventilation rates would be required (through adherence to Building Council of Australia requirements, relevant Australian Standards (AS/NZS) etc). Given the potential size of the Facility, a number of independent ventilation systems may be considered, with appropriate points of emission to the ambient environment. Emissions of hazardous materials may be released through these points should leaks or spillage occur within the Proposal site. The system should therefore be designed to achieve maximum dilution and dispersion of any released emissions such that impacts on any surrounding sensitive receptors are minimised. The impacts associated with a waste spill or leak within a contained building and subsequent emission through a controlled stack would be anticipated to be significantly lower than the impacts associated with a spill/leak in the ambient environment (as assessed within this AQRA).
