‘Clean Burn System’ at NNSS saves nearly $58,000 per year

An energy-saving retrofit of the main warehouse at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) in Mercury, Nev., is saving taxpayers nearly $58,000 per year. The “Clean Burn System” was installed in FY13 by National Security Technologies (NSTec), the managing and operating contractor for the NNSS. The system heats and cools the facility using recycled oil generated from NSTec’s Fleet, Fuel and Equipment preventative maintenance program. The system was recently recognized with a NNSA Environmental Stewardship Award.
