Within the research conducted at our Institute of Cryogenic and Isotopic Technologies (ICSI), is developed a project entitled "Innovative CECE process solution to promote a new technology for decontamination of liquid waste, tritium low concentrated and deuterium recovery”.
The main objective of the project carried out within our team is to promote an innovative solution of CECE isotopic separation process (Combined Electrolysis and Catalytic Exchange), part of a new technology for decontamination of liquid waste, poorly concentrated in tritium, generated by nuclear reactors, ensuring increased recovery of the isotope deuterium and tritium.
This paper presents the current stage of an innovative CECE isotopic separation process solution, and also the mathematical model developed for the simulation of hydrogen isotope separation processes through the CECE process and a theoretical analysis based on numerical data resulting from the simulation of two CECE plant operating mode.
