PPPL physicists propose new plasma-based method to treat radioactive waste (Journal of Hazardous Materials)

By Raphael Rosen, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Communications Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) are proposing a new way to process nuclear waste that uses a plasma-based centrifuge. Known as plasma mass filtering, the new mass separation techniques would supplement chemical techniques. It is hoped that this combined … Continue reading PPPL physicists propose new plasma-based method to treat radioactive waste (Journal of Hazardous Materials)
