A Mechanism for collecting uranium from used nuclear fuels

■ Engineering & Technology / A Mechanism for collecting uranium from used nuclear fuels A group of researchers at Yonsei discovered key mechanisms for the development of nuclear fuel recycling processes A group of researchers at Yonsei University has discovered key mechanisms for efficient recycling of used nuclear fuels using pyro-electrochemical the reactions. Using first principles-based computational modelings, Professor Byungchan Han at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Yonsei University proposed an atomic-level description of the electrorefining process in which uranium deposits on a solid electrode from an ionic state solvated in a molten salt. The study was published in the March 2016 … Continue reading A Mechanism for collecting uranium from used nuclear fuelsRead More →
