Cleaning of liquid radioactive wastes using natural zeolites

Cleaning of liquid radioactive wastes using natural zeolites

Natural zeolite, clinoptilolite, was used to eliminate liquid radioactive wastes (LRW)137 Cs and 90Sr.

The influence of several factors (pH of solution, grain size of the zeolite, etc.) on the process effectivity was studied.

It was shown that clinoptilolite is an effective filter of numerous nuclides.
