H-Canyon Engineering (HCE) is evaluating the feasibility of processing material containing 90% uranium (20% 235U enrichment) alloyed with 10% molybdenum (Mo). The objective is to dissolve the material in nitric acid (HNO3) in the H-Canyon dissolvers to a U concentration of 17-22 g/L (3-4 g/L 235U) without the formation of precipitates. Following dissolution, the dissolved material will be processed through 1st and 2nd Cycle solvent extraction and the U sent to the U blend down program. The… CONTINUE READING
