Clearing of the Radioactive Liquid Waste from Oils and Oil Products by UV-Radiation at NPPs


The basic methods of concentration and purification of liquid radioactive waste on the nuclear power plant are distillation and ionic exchange. During vaporization of oil waste products and the fulfilled washing solutions the part of oil passes into a condensate. Clearing of such condensate on ion-exchanged filters results to oiling of ion-exchanged materials and to decrease number of filter cycles. Due to the often regeneration of ion-exchanged filters additional volumes of waste products as the fulfilled reclaiming solutions, washing and loosening waters are formed. The attention of scientists was involved with methods of clearing of water environments from the organic substances, based on deep oxidizing transformations of hydrocarbons into carbonic gas and water. From processes of oxidation of hydrocarbons up to CO2 and H2O, sold at moderate conditions, our attention has involved photochemical oxidation with the help of UV-radiation.
