2016-04-27 Germany: Extraction of Hazardous Constituents from Tailings Resulting from Processing of High-Grade Uranium Ore


 

Extraction of Hazardous Constituents from Tailings Resulting from Processing of High-Grade Uranium Ore


Description of the project offered: 
Abstract. Conventional production of uranium across the world creates millions of tonnes of tailings annually, which are typically placed in above-ground tailings impoundments. However, particularly tailings resulting from leaching of high-grade uranium ores have the potential to cause serious environmental impacts. In spite of significant improvements which have been made in recent years to operational and short-term safety of those tailings impoundments, their provision of reliable long-term safety is still not satisfying. By advancement of the processing technology for uranium ore a solution is achieved to comprehensively eliminate risks which can derive from those tailings. Removal of radionuclides other than uranium as well as toxic metals can be achieved, if also these are intentionally extracted. The overall objective is to prevent the generation of future uranium production legacies with associated high follow-up costs.

With regard to the forthcoming Euratom Call CALL: EURATOM FISSION 2016-2017, TOPIC: NFRP-7: Research and innovation on the overall management of radioactive waste other than geological disposal. (Planned opening date: 11 May 2016; Deadline: 05 October 2016), I'm looking for capable collaborators for a common R&D project on "EXTRACTION OF HAZARDOUS CONSTITUENTS FROM TAILINGS RESULTING FROM PROCESSING OF HIGH-GRADE URANIUM ORE".

I'm looking particularly for collaborators, who are capable in water treatment/membrane technology and/or radiochemistry and/or radioanalytical laboratory and/or (nuclear) process engineering etc. Contacts/experience in uranium mining is welcomed, but not a precondition. However, interest in mitigating the environmental impact of uranium mining/processing and in the (radiological) long-term safety is a must. This project proposal is recognized by IAEA. In case of any questions don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
