Shock Treatment Removes Nuclear Contaminants From Reactor Waste Water

A new technique developed by researchers at MIT uses shock waves to remove radioactive contaminants from nuclear reactor wastewater. Called shock electrodialysis, the cleansing process separates waste products from the power plant’s coolant system for disposal, while the water can be recycled instead of replaced. Nuclear waste disposal consists of ¬†items like spent nuclear fuel or irradiated components from decommissioned ...
