Many different types of inorganic contaminants are present in groundwater and soil at Department of Energy (DOE) facilities. Table presents the results of several studies that ranked metal and radionuclide contaminants according to frequency of occurrence. In many instances, contaminants occur as mixtures of metals and radionuclides, organic complexing agents, and organic solvents.

Biodegradation of complexing agents used in the nuclear fuel cycle by Russell Thomas Download PDF EPUB FB2

This chapter highlights the key steps in the nuclear fuel cycle where biological treatment strategies may replace or augment existing chemical processes. Radionuclide-containing wastes are produced at all steps in the nuclear fuel cycle.

illegal to dump complexing agents together with wastes produced from the nuclear fuel cycle: biodegradation and. Nuclear plants and fuel-cycle facilities are required to have Radiological Environmental Monitoring Programs (REMPs) to monitor radioactivity in the environment around their sites.

This program is described in Appendix H. In principle, the data gathered by a licensee’s REMP could be used to validate doses estimated from effluent releases and Author: Division on Earth. The multi-university Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation (CRESP) has been funded as a Department of Energy (DOE) cooperative agreement for five years ( - ) awarded to Vanderbilt University as the lead organization.

This five-year period is referred to CRESP III, as it was preceeded by two five-year cooperative agreements, CRESP I and CRESP II. spent nuclear fuels [3]. This process has been used to treat irradiated fuel elements from the Experimental Breeder Reactor (EBR-II). One of the key steps in the demonstration was electrorefining spent driver fuel in a molten LiCl-KCl-UCl 3/Cd system using a pilot scale electrorefiner (Mark-IV ER).

Biodegradation of effluent contaminated with diesel fuel and gasoline. and the brief aeration period it is possible that the system may have become anaerobic for part of the incubation cycle. as well as by Rocha et al., who used a concentration of mg/L in liquid medium for diesel fuel by: U [and U for thorium fuel cycles] – is necessary input to address criticality concerns.

• Knowledge of the constituents of spent nuclear fuel are necessary for waste management assessments. • Plutonium and other constituents could have commercial value in the event of a closed nuclear fuel cycle.

pros: No CO2 emissions- no problem with intermittency Cons: drawbacks with current technology such as radioactive waste storage, the consequences of an accident or natural disaster can be catastrophic, and fuel cycle is open (in US) fuel not completely used (only 4% is used!) france is reprocessing fuel.

By using the advantages of pyroreprocessing technology, which is applicable to various fuels, CRIEPI has proposed the fuel cycle scenario given in Figurewhich has increased flexibility in the future nuclear fuel cycle this scenario, partitioning and transmutation (P&T) of the long-lived nuclides in high-level waste from aqueous reprocessing of light water reactor fuel is Cited by: 1.

FBR utilizations are for extending nuclear fuel utilization which is connected to fuel sustainability of fuel breeding capability as well as self fuel inventory production.

FBR design can be used to burn some spent nuclear fuel such as minor actinide. This burning process is used to produce some additional energy from spent nuclear fuel and to. Spent fuel is an inevitable residue of the production of electricity by nuclear power. The main strategies of spent fuel management include the spent fuel direct disposal route and the reprocessing route.

Today a new strategy of partitioning and transmutation is being pursued. This is the climate change debate we should really be having and aren’t.

So here’s where I want to editorialize a bit. The single largest use of fossil fuel at the moment is for transportation, followed by electric power.

To replace fossil fuels for transportation, we have basically two main options. Five filamentous fungi used in this study to show the ability of these fungi in biodegradation of diesel fuel, these fungi were Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus, flavus, Aspergillus versicolor.

The goal of the study was to evaluate if the method can also be used to assess biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons in the unsaturated zone. The study included laboratory experiments to determine isotopic enrichment for biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbon compounds under unsaturated conditions and a field by: 7.
