    With a resurgence of the nuclear industry’s fortunes, waste management will be an even greater consideration; reducing wastes, better segregation and treatment that lower the impact on waste storage facilities and repositories, in particular geological repositories will help the sustainability of the industry. We at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) proposed in a previous publication a sequential chromatographic separation process, Alternative Reprocessing Technology (ART) for Fission Products (FPs) and Minor Actinides (MAs) separation from spent fuel dissolver liquor, as an improvement to/replacement for PUREX (Plutonium Uranium Redox Extraction). This publication addresses the removal of one particular fission product, cesium, and its impact on waste management, and down-stream PUREX operations. Although our proposed process is still in its infancy, its impact on th.. View More»
