Uranium in Water Removal by Ion Exchange | WQP

May 06, 2005· Tests have shown effective removal (over 95%) of uranium at pH as low as 5.6. But after the pH was reduced to 4.3, the removal rate dropped to 50% and the run lengths (throughput capacities) were reduced by over 90%. Therefore, it is advisable to control the inlet water pH above six at all times.

The Thorium Molten Salt Reactor – Thorium MSR Foundation

When including uranium extracted from the oceans it becomes an inexhaustible source of energy. But in a molten salt reactor one can also use thorium as a fuel and it is estimated that there is a factor 3 more thorium on earth that uranium. Thorium is easily accessible and at this moment is mostly a by-product of rare-earth mining.
