Plant area monitoring at Krško

by Saphymo GmbH  (Jul. 28, 2014)

Post-Fukushima upgrades at Krško in Slovenia (www.nek.si) are being implemented in accordance with the requirements of the national regulator and the plant owners. The first phase, including a passive containment vent filtering system and hydrogen recombiners, a new emergency diesel generator, and a protected store of mobile emergency ...

Questions and answers on the amended Nuclear Safety Directive

by Europa Press Room  (Jul. 8, 2014)

What is new in the directive? The amended Nuclear Safety Directive strengthens the nuclear safety framework of the EU. The amendment reinforces the provisions of the existing directive. It: strengthens the role and independence of national regulatory authorities; introduces a high-level EU-wide safety objective, emphasizing accident prevention ...

Reduction of hexavalent chromium: photocatalysis and photochemistry and their application in wastewater remediation

by IWA Publishing  (Jul. 16, 2014)

Hexavalent chromium present in wastewater discharge of galvanic industries is toxic to most microorganisms and potentially harmful to human health. This work examines the photochemical reduction of Cr(VI) with ethanol under ultraviolet (UV) and visible radiation, and photocatalytic reduction of Cr(VI) with TiO2 in the presence of ethanol under UV ...

Laser–assisted nuclear photoeffect re–examined

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jul. 2, 2014)

In a recent article of Dadi and Müller the modification of nuclear photoeffect due to intense laser field is discussed. The paper is criticised from the point of view of gauge invariance. The S–matrix element and the cross–section of the laser–assisted nuclear photoeffect are recalculated in a gauge invariant manner taking into account the effect ...

Research output in radioactive waste management based on non–conventional literature

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jun. 23, 2014)

This paper identifies the research paradigms in the area of radioactive waste management based on the technical reports retrieved from the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) from 1970 to 2012. The aim is to determine the volume of research output, the countries involved in the research; collaboration network has been studied at the ...

An empirical study of nuclear power–related knowledge flow after Fukushima

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jun. 23, 2014)

Fukushima nuclear power plant accident has become a hot topic in debates among professional communities. It also caused knowledge searching and knowledge sharing among social groups. However, there is a lack of empirical studies investigating nuclear power–related knowledge flow in social communities. This paper examines nuclear power–related ...

Locating Leaks in Geomembrane Liners of Landfills Covered With a Protective Soil

by Leak Location Services Inc. (LLSI)  (Jun. 14, 2014)

ABSTRACT The electrical leak location method was used to locate leaks in the geomembrane liners of single-lined and double-lined landfills covered with a protective soil cover. The landfills ranged in size from 0.40 hectare (one-acre) to 3.2 hectares (eight-acre). Water in the leak detection system under the primary liner indicated the primary ...

Effect of low cost activated carbon on the photocatalytic degradation of Acid blue 158 from aqueous solution

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jun. 2, 2014)

The photocatalytic degradation of Acid blue 158, an anionic dye was carried out using the mixture of activated carbon prepared from sugar mill waste bagasse (BC) and TiO2 (BC + TiO2) under UV irradiation. Adsorption studies using BC and photodegradation using TiO2/UV were also carried out for ...

Acute photo‐induced toxicity and toxicokinetics of single compounds and mixtures of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in zebrafish

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (May 31, 2014)

This study examined photo‐induced toxicity and toxicokinetics for acute exposure to selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in zebrafish. Photo‐enhanced toxicity from co‐exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV) and PAHs enhanced the toxicity and exhibited toxic effects at PAH concentrations orders of magnitude below effects observed in ...

Advanced oxidation processes with coke plant wastewater treatment

by IWA Publishing  (May 7, 2014)

The aim of this study was to determine the most efficient method of coke wastewater treatment. This research examined two processes – advanced oxidation with Fenton and photo-Fenton reaction. It was observed that the use of ultraviolet radiation with Fenton process had a better result in removal of impurities. ...
