Partitioning of high level radioactive waste (HLW) into long-lived and short-lived radionuclides is now under discussion as an alternative to conventional nuclear waste management concepts. This strategy aims at reducing the long term hazard potential of waste repositories. Basic experimental data of the partitioning systems, but also technical scale operations of the separation units are needed for a meaningful cost-risk-benefit assessment of such a strategy. In the “Forschungszentrum Juelich,” we focus on the decontamination of HLW solutions from the actinides including the non-recovered fuel components uranium and plutonium. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
