An effective mass processing equipment using solvent extraction method, named "emulsion flow extractor," is the most promising apparatus for removal and recovery of uranium from liquid waste originated from decontamination of uranium-contaminated fluoride waste in the uranium conversion test facility and of used gas centrifuges in the uranium enrichment facility at Ningyo-toge environmental engineering center. Prior to application of the emulsion flow extractor for actual uranium-containing liquid waste, properties of some phosphorous extractants for extraction and separation of uranium and constituents from simulated liquid wastes were examined through batch tests. These preliminary tests revealed that D2EHPA would be a promising candidate for extractant used for treatment of the actual uranium-containing liquid wastes, and that the extractants with a surfactant like AOT would not be useful.
