Co-processing of uranium and plutonium for sodium-cooled fast reactor fuel reprocessing by acid split method for plutonium partitioning without reductant

Nakahara, Masaumi; Koma, Yoshikazu  ; Nakajima, Yasuo 

The acid split method for Pu partitioning without reductant was investigated for improving nuclear proliferation resistance, safety, and cost. A practical acid split flow sheet was configured using a extraction calculation code, and countercurrent experiment was carried out based on their calculation results. 0.15 mol/dm$$^{3}$$ HNO$$_{3}$$ was supplied at 21$$^{circ}$$C for the Pu stripping. The Pu content of the U/Pu product increased to 2.28 times larger than that of the feed solution. In addition, the Pu leakage to the U product was 0.47%. The experimental results indicate that the proposed flow sheet is effective for fast reactor fuel reprocessing.
