Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative Americium/Curium separations
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): Aiken, South Carolina
Office(s): Environmental Management, Savannah River Operations Office
This research and development activity will investigate the use of inorganic-based ion exchangers for separating americium and curium in spent nuclear fuel reprocessing flowsheets. This activity will investigate the affinity of inorganic and hybrid ion exchange materials to exchange/adsorb fission products and actinides from acidic solutions.
