Purification of the Drain Water and Distillation Residues from Organic Compounds, Transuranic Elements and Uranium at the Chernobyl NPP

Section: Scientific Basis of Innovation Activity
Language: Russian
Abstract: Article examines the purification of drain water and distillation residue from organic (polymeric) compounds, tran suranic elements and uranium. We propose the pretreatment method with the use of a type «Sizol» coagulant-flocculant and catalytic oxidation with hydrogen peroxide and ultrafiltration. This method prevents evaporator coking by dustsuppression and other organic substances, which are vulcanized by heating. Removing alpha-emitting radionuclides increases safety level at the nuclear power plant.
Key words: drain waters, pot residues, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, organic compounds, transuranic elements, uranium.
