Characterization of Undissolved Solids from the Dissolution of Spent Nuclear Fuel
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): Aiken, South Carolina
Office(s): Environmental Management, Savannah River Operations Office
The Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) will characterize undissolved solids (UDS) from the dissolution of spent nuclear fuel used in a Coupled-End-to-End (CETE) demonstration of reprocessing technology performed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The focus of the characterization will include measuring the fissile material content of the UDS, fission product elemental and/or isotopic concentrations, and physical properties of the UDS to the extent possible.
