Test plan for demonstrating plutonium extraction from solutions stored at PFP using EIChrom extraction chromatographic Resins

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Plutonium solutions stored at the Plutonium Finishing Plant must be treated to convert the plutonium to a safe, solid form for storage and to remove the americium so that radiation exposure can be reduced. Extraction chromatographic resins will be tested for separating plutonium from these solutions in the laboratory. Separation parameters will be developed during the testing for large scale processing of the solutions. Use of chromatographic resins will allow plutonium separation with minimum of chemical addition to the feed and without the need for plutonium valence adjustment. The separated plutonium will be calcined to plutonium oxide by direct solution ... continued below
