Title:
RADIONUCLIDE SEPARATION METHOD AND RADIONUCLIDE SEPARATION DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/203567
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method for the separation of radionuclides, said method allowing for radionuclides to be separated more easily while maintaining a separation rate comparable to or higher than that of conventional methods, and a separation device for executing said method. The radionuclide separation method according to the present invention is a method for separating radionuclides to be separated from highly radioactive wastewater containing radionuclides to be separated, the method including: a radioactive wastewater solidification step for vaporizing the liquid-phase component of the highly radioactive wastewater so as to produce a highly radioactive solid; a radionuclide fluoride conversion step in which fluorine gas acts upon the highly radioactive solid so as to convert the target radionuclides in the highly radioactive solid into a fluoride; and a radionuclide fluoride volatilization/separation step in which the radionuclide fluoride is volatilized and separated by being heated to a temperature such that the saturation vapor pressure of the radionuclide fluoride being separated is equal to or greater than a partial pressure calculated from the radionuclide fluoride content of the highly radioactive solid but is less than atmospheric pressure.
