Advanced Waste Treatment Using Nano-structured Hybrid Composites
New materials hold the key to fundamental advances in many market sectors such as energy, and environmental protection; nano-materials and/or materials with a nano-structure offer unique properties or combinations of properties. Their potential is still thwarted as Our programme will develop nano-structured hybrid materials that address these challenges and can function in acid and alkaline solutions with have high affinities for various fission products and minor actinides. Our materials will revolutionise nuclear waste management, offering greater treatment flexibility, minimised secondary wastes and new disposal end points for these wastes.
Our project will develop nano-structured hybrid materials that have high affinities for various fission products and actindes that can function in acid and high alkaline solutions.
UClan bid farewell to Gyuhyeon Kim at the end of March 2017. Gyuhyeon, more commonly known to his friends and colleagues at UCLan as Kim, had been at the university for about 12 months working with Profs Bond/Eccles nuclear team. In this time Kim had developed composite materials such as ammonium phosphomolybdate incorporated into a […]Read More
Some members of UCLan’s nuclear research team (Prof H Eccles, Dr Alistair Holdsworth, Mr Daniel Rowbotham, Mr Parthiv Kavi, Mr Sandeep Kadam, Dr Runjie Mao and Gyuhyeon Kim) visited Westinghouse Springfields Fuels Ltd. Following refreshments and an entertaining and informative presentation for the team’s tour guide they departed for the Oxide Fuel Complex. In this […]Read More
Some of UCLan’s nuclear research team (Prof H Eccles, Dr Alistair Holdsworth, Mr Daniel Rowbotham and Dr Runjie Mao) visited EDf Heysham Power Station. Following a presentation on the history of nuclear power, EDf, and Heysham site the team visited Heysham 2 the last Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor (AGR) to be built in England. The […]Read More
