A preliminary test on MOX fuel dissolution for the STACY critical experiments had been conducted in 2000 through 2003 at Nuclear Science Research Institute of JAEA. Accordingly, the uranyl / plutonium nitrate solution should be reconverted into oxide powder to store the fuel for a long period. For this storage, the moisture content in the oxide powder should be controlled from the viewpoint of criticality safety. The stabilization of uranium / plutonium solution was carried out under a precipitation process using ammonia or oxalic acid solution, and a calcination process using a sintering furnace. As a result of the stabilization operation, recovery rate was 95.6% for uranium and 95.0% for plutonium. Further, the recovered oxide powder was calcined again in nitrogen atmosphere and sealed immediately with a plastic bag to keep its moisture content low and to prevent from reabsorbing atmospheric moisture.

Uranyl nitrate solution fuel used in the STACY and the TRACY is adjusted in the Fuel Treatment System, in which such parameters are varied as concentration of uranium, free nitric acid, soluble neutron poison, and so on. Operations for concentration and denitration of the solution fuel were carried out with an evaporator from JFY 2004 to JFY 2008 in order to adjust the fuel to the experimental condition of the STACY and the TRACY. In parallel, the solution fuel in which some kinds of soluble neutron poison were doped was also adjusted in JFY 2005 and JFY 2006 for the purpose of the STACY experiments to determine neutron absorption effects brought by fission products, etc. After these experiments in the STACY, a part of the solution fuel including the soluble neutron poison was purified by the solvent extraction method with mixer-settlers in JFY 2006 and JFY 2007. This report summarizes operation data of the Fuel Treatment System from JFY 2004 to JFY 2008.

As a correspondence to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the environmental radiation monitoring was performed at the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories, JAEA. This report presented the measurement results of ambient radiation dose rate, radioactivity concentration in the air and radioactivity concentration in fallout and meteorological observation result until May 31, 2011. The ambient radiation dose rate increased, with the peak dose rate of several thousand nGy/h at 7 o'clock in March 15, at 5 o'clock in March 16, and at 4 o'clock in March 21. The variation on the radioactivity concentration in the air and in fallout showed the almost same tendency as that of the dose rate. The concentration ratio of I-131/Cs-137 in the air increased to about 100. The dose was estimated resulting from internal exposure due to inhalation.

Measurement of environmental $$gamma$$-ray dose rate around the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories, JAEA

Mizutani, Tomoko; Onuma, Toshimitsu; Sugai, Masamitsu*; Watanabe, Hajime*; Morisawa, Masato; Takeyasu, Masanori; Sumiya, Shuichi

Progress in Nuclear Science and Technology (Internet), 1, p.380 - 383, 2011/02

The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories (NCL), JAEA operates the Tokai Reprocessing Plant (TRP), plutonium fuel fabrication facilities and the supplemental facilities. In the terrestrial environment, environmental $$gamma$$-ray dose rate was measured continuously using an energy-thermo-compensation-type NaI(Tl) scintillation counter. The data of environmental dose rate measured in 5 monitoring stations and 8 monitoring posts were collected and analyzed to monitor on real-time. This paper summarizes the monitoring data of environmental dose rate around the NCL during the past 10 year (fiscal 1998-2007). The monthly average of the environmental dose rate for all monitoring stations and posts were in the range of 31-48 nGy h$$^{-1}$$, except the value influenced by the criticality accident at the JCO in 1999. The long-term variation in the environmental dose rate was not found. The cases of the short-term increases occurred by the operations of the facilities in the NCL were concluded by the discharges of $$^{85}$$Kr from the TRP, transportation of MOX fuels or radioactive solid wastes, X-ray generator to calibrate the radiation monitoring instruments. The other cases to affect the change of the environmental dose rate were the scavenging of the airborne natural radionuclides, a patient cured by the radiation therapy and the shield effect by cars.

At Nuclear Fuel Cycle Safety Engineering Research Facility, the cerium mediated electrolytic oxidation method which is a decontamination technique to decrease the radioactivity of TRU wastes to the clearance-level has been developed for the effective reduction of TRU wastes generated from the decommissioning of a nuclear fuel reprocessing facility and so on. This method corrodes the oxide layer and the surface of metallic TRU metal wastes by the strong oxidation power of Ce$$^{4+}$$ in nitric acid. In this study, parameter tests were conducted to optimize the solution condition of Ce$$^{3+}$$ initial concentrations and nitric acid concentrations. The target corrosion rate of metallic TRU wastes set to be 2$$sim$$4$$ mu$$m/h for the practical use of this method. Under the optimized solution condition, a dissolution test of stainless steel simulating wastes was carried out. From the result of the dissolution test, the average corrosion rate was 3.3 $$mu$$m/h during the test time of 90 hours. Based on the supposition that the corrosion depth of metallic TRU wastes was 20 $$mu$$m enough to achieve the clearance-level, the treatment time for the decontamination was about 6 hours. It was confirmed from the result that the decontamination could be performed within one day and the decontamination solution could repeatedly reuse 15 times.

Towards the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Stations (1F), Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has designed fabrication equipment of a pseudo fuel debris for the evaluation of the criticality characteristics of 1F fuel debris. In order to confirm the feasibility of the fabrication-method in designing, some fuel pellets mixed with uranium oxide and structural materials (iron, silicon, zirconium, etc.) were manufactured. The properties such as pressing and sintering condition were obtained by the prototyped fuel debris. The pseudo fuel debris fabricating equipment reflecting these properties is designed in 2016 and now constructed. The equipment will be installed in 2018 to start the fabrication.
