Electrochemical ion-exchange (EIX) has been established as an effective process for the treatment of a wide range of liquid radioactive wastes. Inactive simulant trials have been substantiated by tests with genuine waste. Both organic and inorganic systems have been demonstrated. A low-cost current feeder electrode has also been developed with a projected lifetime of more than six years. While cation EIX (CEIX) can be used for the treatment of low salt content streams, combination with anion EIX (AEIX) to control the pH can extend its range of application to more than 30 meq/l.
