Present and future roles of solvent extraction in treatment of nuclear wastes

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Solvent extraction has played a major role in development of the nuclear industry and has recovered much of the uranium from raw materials and essentially all of the plutonium and uranium from spent fuels. These operations produced a wide variety of radioactive wastes as well as the uranium and plutonium products. Solvent extraction worked well in the earlier nuclear facilities and should play a significant role in future cleanup operations.
