A Comprehensive Study of the Solubility, Thermochemistry, Ion Exchange, and Precipitation Kinetics of NO3 Cancrinite and NO3 Sodalite

Description

NO3 cancrinite and NO3 sodalite haves been found as a common sodium alumino-silicate forming in strongly caustic alkaline aqueous solutions associated with radioactive High Level Waste (HLW) stored in many underground tanks and also in nuclear waste treatment facilities such as the Savannah River Site (SRS). The appearance of these phases have created very expensive problems in waste treatment plants by fouling process evaporators in the SRS waste processing facility. Therefore, in order to prevent their formation an assessment of the relative stability, formation kinetics, and the ion-exchange characteristics of these two phases in HLW solutions needs to be investigated. ... continued below

Description

NO3 cancrinite and NO3 sodalite haves been found as a common sodium alumino-silicate forming in strongly caustic alkaline aqueous solutions associated with radioactive High Level Waste (HLW) stored in many underground tanks and also in nuclear waste treatment facilities such as the Savannah River Site (SRS). The appearance of these phases have created very expensive problems in waste treatment plants by fouling process evaporators in the SRS waste processing facility. Therefore, in order to prevent their formation an assessment of the relative stability, formation kinetics, and the ion-exchange characteristics of these two phases in HLW solutions needs to be investigated. The goals of this project are to: (1) Develop a robust equilibrium thermodynamic framework to accurately describe and predict the formation of NO3 cancrinite and NO3 sodalite. (2) Provide a comprehensive characterization of the solid precipitation rates and mechanisms using novel spectroscopic (e.g., NMR) and thermochemical techniques in conditions encountered in HLW waste solutions. (3) Investigate the ion exchange capacity of these zeolitic phases with respect to radionuclides and RCRA metal species.
