  • disposal
  • The sequential steps in the management of waste from processing 1500 metric tons per year of uranium converter fuel irradiated to 10,000 Mwd/ton were: interim storage of liquid waste, conversion to solids by pot calcination, interim storage of calcined solid waste, shipment of 1000 miles, and final disposal in a salt mine. (unt.edu)
  • solid
  • Minimum-cost schemes were worked out involving optimum choices of interim liquid and solid storage times, diameter of the waste-calcination cylinder, and age at time of burial in the sa1t. (unt.edu)
  • nuclear
  • Phys.org)-One of the concerns with using nuclear energy is the management of the waste produced. (phys.org)
  • Oxidation has been achieved previously by others using strong chemical oxidants, however, a useful electrochemical method to make high oxidation state americium for nuclear waste processing has eluded scientists for more than half a century. (phys.org)
  • This study shows that one possible route to removing americium -241 from nuclear waste is through electrochemical oxidation to higher-order oxidation states. (phys.org)
  • While normally prohibitive because of the high potential required, by using a ligand-functionalized mesoporous electrode, the oxidation potential of Am(III) to Am(IV) is decreased, opening a route to [AmO2+ that will be much easier to separate from nuclear waste. (phys.org)
  • hemp
  • AFM states that the development of this technology will substantially increase the value per acre of hemp and flax crops by finding uses for parts of plants that are currently considered waste. (biofuelsdigest.com)
  • reactions
  • I have managed to find out that waste products from fusion reactions are far less dangerous than those from traditional fission reactions but i cannot find anywhere that states what the waste products actually are. (physicsforums.com)
  • Early in the reaction the cyclohexanol is converted to the ketone, releasing nitrous acid: HOC6H11 + HNO3 → OC(CH2)5 + HNO2 + H2O Among its many reactions, the cyclohexanone is nitrosated, setting the stage for the scission of the C-C bond: HNO2 + HNO3 → NO+NO3− + H2O OC6H10 + NO+ → OC6H9-2-NO + H+ Side products of the method include glutaric and succinic acids.
