Research from C.X. Liu et al broadens understanding of environment
September 26th, 2008
According to recent research from the United States, "Column experiments were performed to investigate the scale-dependent desorption of uranyl [U(VI)] from a contaminated sediment collected from the Hanford 300 Area at the U. S. Department of Energy ( DOE) Hanford Site, Washington. The sediment was a coarse-textured alluvial flood deposit containing significant mass percentage of river cobble."
"U(VI) was, however, only associated with its minor fine-grained (< 2 mm) mass fraction. U(VI) desorption was investigated both from the field-textured sediment using a large column (80 cm length by 15 cm inner diameter) and from its < 2 mm U( VI)associated mass fraction using a...
