Leslie R. Dole, Ph.D., CM

Les Dole has leadership experience in large national and international programs that have embraced a wide range of technical goals and political agendas.

Dole has a comprehensive background in radioactive and hazardous waste management projects, including the deep geological disposal of high-level wastes and spent fuel. From 1976 to 1980, as a Program Manager in the National Waste Terminal Storage (NWTS) Program Office of Waste Isolation (OWI) at Oak Ridge, Dole managed projects for data collection on nuclide transport and engineering barriers. These studies supported the risk analyses of deep geological repositories for high-level nuclear wastes and spent fuel.

When this program office changed contractors to Battelle, Dole continued to serve the NWTS program as the liaison, exchange scientist with programs in the Federal Republic of Germany. Developing over 20 cooperative research projects under the bilateral agreement between the U.S. DOE and State Department with the Bundesministerium fur Forschung und Technologie (BMFT), he coordinated international research in these areas: (1) in situ testing of waste packages (Asse mine, Remmlingen), (2) site exploration (PTB, Gorleben), (3) waste form formulation and testing (University Clausthal and Karlsruhe, Kernforschungszentrum), and (4) risk assessment (Hahn Meitner, Berlin). Dole reads and speaks German. In subsequent years, Dole served as technical liaison on the treatment and disposal of transuranic wastes between the U.S. And the united Kingdom, France, and the UNO International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria.

At ORNL, Dole served as a program manager in the Mixed Waste Integrated Programs (MWIP). He lead in the establishment of national programs across the complex to treat and dispose of mixed wastes. As a program manager, Dole developed and administered national technology development programs to apply emerging technologies to mixed-waste streams across the DOE complex. He directed the MWIP activities related to the DOE's compliance with the Federal Facility Compliance Act (FFCAct) and was the programmatic liaison to the Options Analysis Team (OAT) of EM-30's FFCAct Task Force. He was a principal in organizing and directing the EM-30/40/50 Technology Resource Team (TRT) that coordinated the pool of technical resources from across the DOE's national laboratories and operating facilities.

Also at ORNL, Dole managed the multi-site vitrification program for the Transportable Vitrification System (TVS) Demonstration program at the Oak Ridge K-25 Plant. He coordinated the Westinghouse Savannah River development and Oak Ridge implementation of this emerging technology. To ensure its compliance with the Federal Facility Compliance Act (FFCAct), this program implemented a full scale operation/demonstration of the transportable joule heated melter at the K-31 area of the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR) with mixed low-level radioactive wastes from across the DOE complex.

While at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dole led the Waste Immobilization Technologies (WIT) group in the Chemistry Technology Division (CTD). He developed this group into a major new area in CTD, and this group developed and tested new ways to treat, immobilize, and package nuclear wastes. The group made waste forms, measuring their leaching, thermal and radiolytic stability, physical properties, and durability. In March 1986, Dole helped to form the Waste Management Technology Center (WMTC). He was responsible for the program management of on-site environmental demonstrations under Martin Marietta Energy Systems, Inc. (MMES), who managed the site for the U.S. Department of Energy (US-DOE) Oak Ridge Operations Office (ORO).

With the permission of DOE , Dole consulted on other on-site and in situ remediation of superfund and other hazardous waste site clean-ups. Dole was an independent consultant in the areas of near-field contaminant transport and waste form treatability studies for solidification/stabilization (S/S) technologies. His consulting has resulted in the successful disposal of over 20,000,000 curies of radioactive wastes by the Department of Energy and the closure of three Superfund sites for the U.S. EPA and for private clients, resulted in the solidification/stabilization of over 500,000 tons of hazardous wastes.

As a result of a very successful site closure for them, Florida Power & Light (FPL Group), Inc. formed QUALTEC, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary to pursue the remediation business. Dole became the Technical Director of QUALTEC, directing over 300 treatability studies in their Oak Ridge and Knoxville laboratories. Dole played a key role in the business development and marketing of this company. After joining the organization in 1988, its revenues rose from $8M to over $50M per year within the following three years. QUALTEC became EPA contractor of the year in 1990, and its technology was pre-qualified for all CERCLA sites by the EPA in 1991.

Dole has been an expert witness in major environmental litigation, providing technical direction and testimony essential to winning cases. He has also conducted workshops on in situ and ex-situ solidification/stabilization (S/S) technologies for the University of Wisconsin and the American Groundwater Association.

He has served as a lead investigator for the federal  Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, investigating major accidents in petroleum, (SonatFinal.pdf) and specialty chemicals industries (MortonFinal.pdf) .

Dole has a Q security clearance with OSHA HAZWOPER, Hazardous Waste Supervisor, and Radiation Worker Level II certifications. He is a Certified Manager by the National Management Association.

He has authored over 115 papers, chapters, and reports.

Leslie R. Dole, Ph.D., CM   - ACS

Vita
 

Les Dole received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia in 1972 and his M.S. from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 1968. The former thesis dealt with water treatment, the adsorption of aromatic solutes from aqueous solutions onto hydrophobic surfaces. The latter thesis showed the colloidal and surface properties of hydrogels resulting from the treatment of papermill effluents.

From 1971 to 1976, Dole studied nuclide transport in pressurized water reactor systems for the Westinghouse Power Systems Division (W-PSD). He developed low-level samplers, control systems, and transport models for iodine-131. At W-PSD, he also studied aqueous phosphate chemistry and steam generator corrosion near the critical point of water.

From 1976 to 1980 as a Program Manager in the National Waste Terminal Storage Program at Oak Ridge, Dole managed the data collection on nuclide transport and engineering barriers. These studies supported the risk analyses of deep geological repositories for high-level nuclear wastes. When this program office changed contractors, Dole continued to serve the program as the liaison to programs in the Federal Republic of Germany. He coordinated international research in these areas: (1) in situ testing of waste packages (Asse mine, Remmlingen), (2) site exploration (PTB, Gorleben), (3) waste form formulation and testing (University Clausthal and Karlsruhe, Kernforschungszentrum), and (4) risk assessment (Hahn Meitner, Berlin). Dole reads and speaks German.

From 1980 to 1986, Dole led the Waste Immobilization Technologies (WIT) group in the Chemistry Technology Division (CTD) of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He developed this group into a major new area in CTD. The group developed and tested new ways to treat, immobilize, and package nuclear wastes. The group made waste forms, measuring their leaching, thermal and radiolytic stability, physical properties, and durability.

In March 1986, Dole helped to form the Waste Management Technology Center (WMTC). He was responsible for the program management of on-site environmental demonstrations under Martin Marietta Energy Systems, Inc. (MMES). MMES manages the site for the U.S. Department of Energy (US-DOE) Oak Ridge Operations Office (ORO).

With the approval of MMES and US-DOE, Dole consulted in the private sector on hazardous waste treatment, on-site stabilization, product evaluation, and processing technologies. For Florida Power & Light Company, he developed the remedial action and closure of a Pepper's Steel & Alloys National Priorities List (NPL) "Superfund" site.

Based on the success of this NPL closure, QUALTEC was formed by FPL Group. Dole was the Director of Technologies for QUALTEC, Inc.'s Oak Ridge and Knoxville laboratories. He has directed over 300 treatability studies. Dole participated in the business development and marketing of this company. QUALTEC was EPA contractor of the year in 1990, and its technology was prequalified for all CERCLA sites by the EPA. Ogden Environmental and Energy Services (OEES) purchased QUALTEC in July 1991 and dissolved it in November 1992.

From November 1992 to June 1993, Dr. Dole was a Senior Project Manager with Ogden Environmental and Energy Services, Inc., in its Oak Ridge, Tennessee offices. He participated in establishing the first international Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between Ogden, ORNL/DOE, and Germany.

In June 1993, Dole became an independent consultant in the areas of near-field contaminant transport and waste form treatability studies for solidification/stabilization (S/S) technologies. Current clients include: OHM Remediation Services, OEES, Gulf Coast Recycle, Florida Power & Light Company, Burlington Environmental, MMES, Gilbert Commonwealth, DOE/MWIP, Crown Laundry, American Linen, and Akerman, Senterfitt & Eidison, P.A. He has been an Expert Witness in major environmental litigation. He also conducts workshops on ex-situ S/S for the University of Wisconsin and the American Groundwater Association.
