Immobilisation of enrichment of tritium waste water from reconditioning through reinforcement as a zirconium hydride
The different streams of waste water which are expected to arise from the operation of the Wackersdorf reprocessing plant were identified, as well as their chemical and radiochemical composition. Before the enrichment of tritium by catalytic chemical exchange and electrolysis can be carried out, the remaining contaminations in the waste water must be removed; this pretreatment step has been examined by distillation. In the case of 131I and 137Cs, decontamination factors of 200-350 could be achieved. Other contaminations in the distillate were no longer detectable.
