THE ANL ELECTROREFINER

Schematic of ANL's electrochemical separations in ANL's proposed approach to treating SNF. REs are rare-earth elements, FPs are fission products, and TRU denotes transuranic elements.(From An Assessment of Continued R&D into an Electrometallurgical Approach for Treating DOE Spent Nuclear Fuel, National Academy Press, Washington, D.C., July 1995.)
