Volume reduction effect of radioactive contaminated soil by high temperature heating process

Ishiyama, Shintaro; Mamitani, Masataka*; Kondo, Mitsunori*; Hiki, Akinori*

For the purpose of removal of $$^{137}$$Cs from highly densified contaminate soil produced after contaminated soil washing process, reclamation soil techniques of contaminated soil through use of structural instability of mordenite contained in contaminated soil under high temperature heating was testified and the following results were obtained; (1) Structural instability of Cs-typed typical native mordinite yielding in Tohoku area in Japan was observed and dissociation of $$^{137}$$Cs from this mordenite was found after heat annealing at 1173 K. (2) Remarkable dissociation rate in the early stages was observed and then was slowed down afterword. Dissociation rate of $$^{137}$$Cs reached up to 65% after 1173 K $$times$$ 1 hr annealing. (3) 100% recovery of Cs from vaporized Cs gas was achieved by technology combination of electric precipitation FP filter newly developed and cold trap.
