Radioactive Waste Cleanup
Radioactive waste generally consists of small amounts of highly toxic radioactive elements, often as a part of a complex mixture. This is an ideal application for Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) technology, since the strong binding nature of SPE materials enables recovery of even trace amounts of elements. The precisely tuned binding characteristics of the SPE materials enables target radionucleotides to be removed and separated from complicated mixtures. Metals U.S. can provide total solutions, from consulting to pilot testing and onsite implementation of small units that can efficiently process nuclear waste, and separate it into small concentrated fractions for safe disposal.
