Strata-G Celebrates Sustainability on Oak Ridge Reservation
Strata-G congratulated DOE’s Oak Ridge Environmental Management Program and its cleanup contractor, UCOR, for recognition of an outstanding sustainability project, the result of DOE’s largest-ever cleanup effort. Oak Ridge has transferred more than 1,200 acres of land and numerous buildings to the private sector for use in a multi-use industrial park with three solar fields located there together producing an average of approximately 1.7 megawatts of electricity annually. Oak Ridge also placed 3,500 acres of land into conservancy for protection of wetlands, flora, and fauna. Additionally, reuse and recycling have been central to the project. Over the last five years, more than 26.5 million pounds of demolition debris, 3 million pounds of scrap metal, 1.2 million pounds of paper and cardboard, 133,000 pounds of plastics, 95,000 pounds of electronics, and 235,000 pounds of universal waste were diverted from landfills.
John Clayton, Strata-G Project Controls Specialist, who leads the Y-12 Acquisition and Project Management Office’s (APMO’s) Business Management organization, has published his 2nd novel, Presidential Power, the second in his “manipulated” series. The first book, Manipulated, was a finalist for the Amazon Reader’s Favorite Book Award and the Montaigne Medal, awarded to books that “either illuminate, progress, or redirect thought.” Interested readers can find both books at www.johnfordclayton.com or search John Ford Clayton on Amazon Books.
