Cavitation Treatment is a Special Technology for Protecting the Reactor Pressure Vessel

Framatome has been awarded a contract to implement a special technology to protect the reactor pressure vessel at four U.S. nuclear power plants. The cavitation treatment process extends the life of the reactor pressure vessel, protecting it from corrosion. Cavitation treatment is a solution to reduce surface contamination, which can prevent corrosion cracks without damaging […]

Researchers Developed a New Method of Enriching Uranium in Seawater

Researchers at the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have developed an innovative method of pre-enriching uranium in seawater by membrane filtration based on considerable differences in the diameter of hydrated ions between UO22 + and the main coexisting ions. Researchers fabricated a new type of glycine cross-linked composite graphene oxide […]
