the method is based on the synthesis of sorbent-based composite powder of “tungsten bronze”. It can be used to clean water and drinking water from hazardous radionuclides of cesium and strontium, and also to process liquid radioactive waste.
a New composite sorbent can be used for purification of liquid radioactive waste generated during the operation of the rectors of nuclear power plants, and elimination of consequences of technogenic accidents. Allows the display of natural objects dangerous radionuclides which can accumulate in the body, instead of potassium and calcium.
According to the graduate SHEN of the University Arthur Drenkova, scientists have developed several applications of the sorbent. For example, the pellets can be placed in the contaminated water or use pills of the sorbent in the flow path filters.
“In our opinion, the operational properties of the sorption material is not inferior to counterparts made in the more expensive technologies. It gives hope that our synthesis method will be perceived by industry as a more practical and technologically efficient,” said Arthur Trankov.
Sorbents can serve at least five cycles. The scientists used the substance can be sintering into high-density ceramics for further safe disposal. The development of this technology will be the second phase of works which are grant of the Russian Foundation for basic research for young scientists enrolled in graduate school.
