Applicability of temperature swing extraction technology employing monoamides was examined for uranium contaminated waste treatment procedure. Separation experiments on simulated target solution with three kinds of monoamides with different structure showed that Ce(IV) in the solution was selectively recovered by the temperature swing extraction operation. Based on the experiments, an appropriate monoamide for the procedure was selected.

Various radioactive wastes have been generated from Chemical Processing Facility for basic research on advanced reactor fuel reprocessing, radioactive waste disposal, and nuclear fuel cycle technology. Many types of reagents have been used for the experiments, and some troublesome materials were produced in the course of experiments. The radioactive liquid wastes were treated for stable and safe storage using decomposition, solvent extraction, precipitation, and solidification methods. In this study, current status of harmless treatment for the radioactive liquid wastes would be reported.

The corrosion behaviour of FeCrAl-ODS steels for the accident tolerant fuel cladding of LWRs were investigated in nitric acid solutions for the reprocessing process of spent fuels. The corrosion tests were carried out at 60C, 80C and the boiling point of the solutions, and the specimens were then analysed by XPS. The corrosion remarkably progressed at the boiling point, and the highest corrosion rate was 0.22 mm/y. In the oxide film, the atomic concentration of Fe was lower, than that in the base material, and those of Cr and Al were higher. The results show that the corrosion of FeCrAl-ODS steels in hot nitric acid solution is not severe because of the high corrosion resistance of the oxide film formed on the material; hence, the corrosion resistance of the new cladding materials in the dissolution process of spent fuel is acceptable for reprocessing operations.

In order to elucidate the mechanism of corrosion in the reprocessing process and propose a method for suppressing corrosion, the effect of coexisting substances on the chemical form of Ru in nitric acid solution containing seawater components was evaluated. The result of XAFS measurement for Ru showed the structural change around a Ru atom due to the interaction with chloride ion, which will suppress the corrosion promoting action of Ru in nitric acid solution.

Hydrous sodium titanate (SrTreat) is able to remove radioactive Sr from Radioactive contaminated water at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power station (F1NPS). Knowing the amount of radioactive nuclides in the used SrTreat is important for an effective disposal and deposition of the F1NPS waste. This study investigated changes in the ability of SrTreat to sorb Sr during its use, and to understand the causes of changes in the sorbing. After exposure to a simulated treated water for 99 h, the surface structure of the SrTreat was changed, and the percentage of sorbed Sr and the buffer capacity for protons decreased. When the amount of radioactive nuclides contained in the used SrTreat is calculated from the sorption data of the as received SrTreat.

JAEA has been conducting research and development of MA(III) recovery from HLLW by extraction chromatography technology for reduction in amount and environmental impact of radioactive waste. The behavior of adsorbed cations inside the adsorbent packed in a column is necessary to be evaluated for improvement of the adsorbent or flow-sheet to achieve targeted MA(III) recovery performance. In this paper, micro-PIXE analysis was carried out on the particles sampled from various positions of the column to reveal the behavior of cations inside the packed column with CMPO/SiO -P adsorbent. Simple experiment and data analysis were shown to be effective to reveal inside of the column, and formation and transportation of the adsorption bands were observed for some cations which are extractable by the CMPO extractant. Some part of Zr(IV) and Mo(VI) were found to remain inside the column without distinct transportation even after the elution operation.

At Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station owned by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Incorporated (TEPCO), contaminated water (accumulated, treated) secondary waste from water treatment, rubble and soil were collected and analyzed. The data already opened to public was collected as this report. The analytical data reported by TEPCO, Japan Atomic Energy Agency and International Research Institute for Nuclear Decommissioning until the end of March, 2016, was collected. Information on the samples and values of radioactive nuclide concentration and others were tabulated, besides figures, which show change in radioactive nuclide concentration for major nuclides, are contained. And, English translation and the collected data are provided as electric data.

A battery of tests using MOX fuel were performed for development of actinides co-extraction system with direct extraction process using supercritical fluid. The condition that was set up based on consideration of the results of the tests under ordinary pressure, and then was made fine adjusted based on the tests with supercritical fruid. As a result, U, Pu and Am were extracted simultaneously. Comparative test confirmed that U, Pu and Am could be also extracted simultaneously with dodecane as a diluent. While the extraction test of unirradiated MOX fuel with simulated FP, U, Pu was extracted with U and Am, and the Pu residue, that was found at the extraction test of irradiated fuel, was not found. As the result of scrubbing and stripping test, it was showed that traditional extraction process design method could be applied to design scrubbing and stripping process with supercritical fluid.
