Modelling of an actinide electrorefining process

In the frame of the SACSESS European project CEA, ITU and CNRS are studying jointly a pyrochemical process for the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuels by electrolysis in molten chloride salts.

The main objective of the proposed post-doctoral work concerns the modelling of electrorefining runs onto aluminium cathodes using U-Pu-Zr-Am-Gd-Nd-Ce-Y metallic alloy. The modelling aims to evaluate the efficiency of this electrolytic process in terms of separation factors and to optimize the process flow sheets for a safe nuclear materials management.
