Chinese fuel reprocessing plant, store Kr-85

  1. Jan 9, 2018 #1
    Hello everybody!

    Areva is supposed to build a plant in China to reprocess spent nuclear fuel (agreement hoped in Spring 2018).

    I should like to remind that the radioactive 85Kr fission product, which stays in the fuel rods until they're opened, can be stored easily until it has decayed, as I described there (drawings on Dec 03, 2011):

    so there is no need to release it in our atmosphere.

    This operation is easier to design in a new plant, so it's a good opportunity for improvement.

    And: happy new year to everyone!

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
