Simulant flowsheet test with modified solvent for cesium removal using caustic-side solvent extraction.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A modified solvent has been developed at Oak Ridge National laboratory (ORNL) for a caustic-side solvent extraction (CSSX) process that removes cesium (Cs) from Savannah River Site (SRS) tank waste. The modified solvent was evaluated using the same CSSX flowsheet, SRS simulant, and 33-stage minicontactor (2-cm centrifugal contactor) that had been used to test the previous CSSX solvent. As with the previous solvent, the key process goals were achieved: (1) the Cs was removed from the waste with decontamination factors greater than 40,000 and (2) the recovered Cs was concentrated by a factor of 15 in dilute nitric acid. Thus, ... continued below

Thus, the modified CSSX solvent can be used in place of the previous solvent while maintaining satisfactory hydraulic performance and still achieving process requirements at the bench scale.
