The article reports that A.J. Francis, Cleveland Dodge and Gary Halada, scientists of the Brookhaven National Laboratory in the United States, have developed a safe method to remove radioactive uranium from contaminated surfaces, soil and incinerator ash. The method is a green-chemistry process. It uses all naturally occurring materials, which are citric acid, common soil bacteria and sunlight.
