  • Straightforward monitoring of uranium in drinking water

    Determining trace levels of uranium in drinking and mineral water by inductively coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS) requires expensive analytical instrumentation. In contrast, adsorptive cathodic stripping voltammetry (AdCSV) using Metrohm’s 797 VA Computrace is a straightforward, much less expensive alternative allowing measurements with superior sensitivity. ...

  • Sophisticated monitoring array to address mystery of uranium plume

    Scientists have been puzzled for years about why uranium contamination in groundwater continues to exceed drinking water standards in an area located at the south end of the Hanford Site. The Department of Energy wants answers to why the uranium persists. Now, an innovative system has been installed for field experiments to better understand this complex site and to support future cleanup ...

  • New (2007) Uranium Analyser

    Since the Chernobyl disaster, the awareness of the health hazard of Uranium is reflected in the call for close monitoring of contamination of land and water as well as urine checks of people in high contamination risk areas, atomic energy work places and close by habitations. Global Warming and toxins’ contamination of much of our planet have been increasingly present in the news and ...

  • EPA begins three Navajo uranium mine cleanups in September

    This month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is beginning three uranium mine clean up actions on the Navajo Nation. The work, expected to cost $7.15 million, is part of the EPA’s five year plan to address uranium contamination on the Navajo Nation and is being done in partnership with the Navajo Nation’s Environmental Protection Agency. Funding for all three actions is from ...

  • South African mine finds way of removing uranium from groundwater

    Acid mine drainage is one of the world's biggest environmental problems besides global warming. The national nuclear regulator has confirmed uranium contamination in drinking and agricultural water from gold mining activities in South Africa. Currently, the water quality and pollution into our water resources is a bigger health risk than HIV/AIDs.A test trial done with a organic medium developed ...

  • Study: Two major U.S. aquifers contaminated by natural uranium

    Nearly 2 million people throughout the Great Plains and California live above aquifer sites contaminated with natural uranium that is mobilized by human-contributed nitrate, according to a study from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Data from roughly 275,000 groundwater samples in the High Plains and Central Valley aquifers show that many Americans live less than two-thirds of a mile from ...

  • EPA issues construction approval for impoundments at the Piñon Ridge Uranium Mill in Montrose County (Colo.)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued a construction approval to Energy Fuels Resources Corp. for the construction and operation of uranium byproduct material impoundments at the Piñon Ridge Uranium Mill in Montrose County, Colo. EPA’s construction approval is based on a determination that the facility’s impoundments are in full compliance with requirements ...

  • EPA issues permit associated with aquifer pump test at weld county (Colo.) uranium site

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued an injection well permit to Powertech, (USA) Inc. that will enable the company to re-inject groundwater from an aquifer pump test at the proposed Centennial uranium site in Weld County, Colorado. This Underground Injection Control (UIC) Class V permit does not allow any uranium recovery activity at the site. The permitted activity is limited ...

  • Radiation monitors `cannot reliably detect` nuclear material at US borders

    Nuclear security equipment at U.S. borders and ports is failing to reliably detect highly enriched uranium entering the country, meaning Americans are spending billions for machines that don’t reliably detect the most dangerous nuclear material, making it possible for terrorists to smuggle in the material needed to build a nuclear bomb in the United States, according to an article published in ...

  • Shell choose Jerome analyser for mercury monitoring

    ABLE is pleased to announce the order award for their Jerome mercury analyser for the Shell operated Clipper gas production platform. The portable Jerome Analyser will be used during maintenance and engineering activities on the platform and associated satellite wellhead platforms in the Southern sector of the North Sea., approximately 62 km from Bacton.During gas and oil extraction, a mixture of ...

  • ASTM C1169 - 97(2012) Standard Guide for Laboratory Evaluation of Automatic Pedestrian SNM Monitor Performance

    SNM monitors are an effective and unobtrusive means to search pedestrians for concealed SNM. Nuclear facility security plans often include SNM monitors as one means to help prevent theft or unauthorized removal of designated quantities of SNM from access areas. This guide describes a way to evaluate and categorize the relative performance of available SNM monitors that ...

  • ASTM C993 - 97(2012) Standard Guide for In-Plant Performance Evaluation of Automatic Pedestrian SNM Monitors

    SNM monitors are an effective and unobtrusive means to search pedestrians for concealed SNM. Facility security plans use SNM monitors as one means to prevent theft or unauthorized removal of designated quantities of SNM from access areas. Daily testing of the monitors with radioactive sources guarantees only the continuity of alarm circuits. The in-plant evaluation is a way to ...

  • `To Your Health` - Distillery sludge used to treat radioactive sites

    It's not the usual association that comes to mind - drinking your favourite brew and nuclear wastes - but a new study shows how distillery sludge can help solve one of our most pressing environmental problems. According to a new study, contaminated sites can be treated with sludge from the treatment of distillery wastewater in bioreactors. The study demonstrates an efficient method for ...

  • U.S.-Russia 20 Year Partnership Completes Final Milestone in Converting 20,000 Russian Nuclear Warheads into Fuel for U.S. Electricity

    U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz today announced the final shipment of low enriched uranium (LEU) derived from Russian weapons-origin highly enriched uranium (HEU) under the 1993 U.S.-Russia HEU Purchase Agreement, commonly known as the Megatons to Megawatts Program. Under this Agreement, Russia downblended 500 metric tons of HEU, equivalent to 20,000 nuclear wearheads, into LEU. The resulting ...
