Waste remediation studies overview

  • Development of methodologies for the characterisation of radioactive wastes
  • Novel approaches for the remediation of radioactive wastes
  • Technologies for the removal of radionuclides from waste streams


Studies include:

  • Investigation of bone char as an effective long-term absorbent for radionuclides
  • Low-energy electrokinetic (FIRS) remediation of soils
  • Paramagnetic separation of plutonium
  • Production of high capacity iron sulphides to isolate radioactive or chemical pollutants
  • Penetration and incorporation of 3H in metals and bioshield concretes
