Actinide removal from aqueous solution with activated magnetite

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An actinide aqueous waste treatment process using activated magnetite has been developed at Rocky Flats. The use and effectiveness of various magnetites in lowering actinide concentrations in aqueous solution are described. Experiments indicate that magnetite particle size and pretreatment (activation of the magnetite surface with hydroxyl ions greatly influence the effective use of magnetite as an actinide adsorbent. With respect to actinide removal, Ba(OH)/sub 2/-activated magnetite was more effective over a broader pH range than was NaOH-activated magnetite. About 50% less Ba(OH)/sub 2/-activated magnetite was required to lower plutonium concentration from 10/sup -4/ to 10/sup -8/ g/l. 7 refs., 8 ... continued below
