  • Innovation in radioactive wastewater-stream management: Part one

    Treatment of radioactive wastewater streams is receiving considerable attention in most countries that have nuclear reactors. The first Egyptian research reactor ETRR-1 has been operating for 40 years, resulting in accumulation of large quantities of wastewater collected in special drainage tanks called SDTs. Previous attempts were aimed at the volumetric reduction of streams present in SDTs, by ...

  • Innovation in radioactive wastewater-stream management. Part II: theoretical model and experimental verification

    The present work is the second part of the authors' innovative method for radioactive wastewater-stream management, by volume reduction, by a mutual heating and humidification of a compressed dry air introduced through the wastewater. In this part, to determine the optimal operating conditions, a theoretical model describing volume reduction of the radioactive wastewater stream is achieved. A set ...

  • Low-Level Waste Projection Program Guide

    The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) is taking a structured approach for the determination of its low-level waste (LLW) disposal needs through the development of this Low-Level Waste Projection Program Guide (referred to as the Guide). The Department has developed this Guide as part of a process to improve the management of DOE LLW. This Guide has been prepared by the Office of ...

  • Deep in the Dumps? How municipalities can avert a waste disposal crisis

    Municipalities across Canada are looking for economical and environmental methods to improve their waste management diversion methods. Some are scrambling to assess and extend landfill disposal capacity and others are trying to dramatically increase their diversion rates. Many are initiating a combination of strategies. Canada's largest city has arguably received the most attention with regard to ...

  • Ivey-sol technology has potential to increase oil recovery of oil-sands waste by 15-25 percent

    Alberta’s oil sands are comprised of one of the world's largest sources of bitumen, containing an estimated 1.6 trillion barrels. About two tonnes of oil sands must be dug up and processed to produce one barrel of oil. Oil sands recovery processes include extraction and separation systems to remove bitumen from sand and water. Separating the oil from the sand is difficult and costly, and getting ...

  • Prospects for nuclear energy in the 21st century: The East-Asian perspective

    Although closely resembling each other geographically and socio-politically, Japan and Korea differ sharply in both technological and political terms with regard to the development of nuclear power. This paper aims to illustrate Japan and Korea's commonalities and differences and thereby to highlight the major short-term challenges facing them, such as the selection of radioactive waste storage ...

  • Matrix Gemini LIMS at work in the Nuclear Industry

    Bradwell nuclear power station is located on the Dengie peninsula at the mouth of the River Blackwater in Essex. Construction of Bradwell power station began in December 1957 and electricity generation started in 1962. It had two Magnox reactors producing 242 Megawatts of electricity. It could supply enough electricity to meet the combined needs of three towns the size of Chelmsford, Colchester ...

  • Industrial Trash Compactor: Factors to Consider when Making a Selection

    Generation of waste material is inevitable in the course of industrial production and the volume can soon exceed manageable amounts, if not handled professionally. Besides this, it is mandatory by law for industries to make proper provision for it, keeping in mind the environment implications. However waste recycling has to make commercial sense too for the industries. The use of a ...

  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Top 3 Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is an effective purifier. It is used to remove organic pollutants from different gaseous, liquid and solid substances. By removing the undesirable organic compounds, activated carbon can successfully remove the odour and taste of these compounds from a wide range of things.  Unlike other purification agents that react with organic compounds and change their nature, activated ...

  • Pyrolysis

    Introduction: Pyrolysis is formally defined as chemical decomposition induced in organic materials by heat in the absence of oxygen. In practice, it is not possible to achieve a completely oxygen-free atmosphere; actual pyrolytic systems are operated with less than stoichiometric quantities of oxygen. Because some oxygen will be present in any pyrolytic system, nominal oxidation will occur. If ...

  • Dredging at weldon spring super fund project Morrison Knudsen - St. Charles, Missouri, USA

    Remote controlled Dredging proved to be the best method of removing radioactive sludge from settling ponds of a former uranium processing plant near St. Charles, Missouri. Dredging keeps the material wet and out of contact with the atmosphere throughout the removal and treatment process, eliminating the danger of contaminates becoming airborne. The Weldon Spring Site Remedial Action Project ...

  • Surfactant enhanced bioremediation (SEB)

    Surfactant Enhanced Bioremediation (SEB®) using Ivey-sol® involve the use of Ivey-sol formulations which are patented non-ionic surfactant mixtures used in the in-situ and ex-situ treatment of petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and more recently radioactive type contaminated waste. These surfactant formulations have the ability to enhance soil biodegradation. During In-situ and Ex-situ ...

  • Enhanced Bioremediation

    Introduction Enhanced bioremediation is a process in which indigenous or inoculated micro-organisms (e.g., fungi, bacteria, and other microbes) degrade (metabolize) organic contaminants found in soil and/or ground water, converting them to innocuous end products. Nutrients, oxygen, or other amendments may be used to enhance bioremediation and contaminant desorption from subsurface materials. ...

  • Integrated Environmental Risk Management in Real Estate Transactions

     Traditional risk management posits a rational, five-step process for managing risks. The outstanding differences between this traditional process and the environmental risk management process lie in the technicality and complexity of step one (identifying and analyzing environmental risk) and of the first part of step two (examining the feasibility of  alternative risk management, ...

  • The New Environmental Insurance Products: When Does it Make Sense to Buy Them?

     Part One Introduction Real estate transactions with environmental problems often founder on attempts to shift the liabilities from one party to the other. In transactions with other types of problems, insurance is a popular risk transfer mechanism,  and is regularly used for that purpose, but it is used far less often when there are environmental risks. This so-called ...
