Electrolytic dissolution in a nitric acid electrolyte is promising as a universal headend in the recovery of uranium from a wide variety of nuclear fuels. A number of fuel materials of different shapes are dissolved continuously without difficulty. Preliminary studies indicate the applicability of electrolytic dissolution in the decladding of UO2 and the cutting of stainless steel fuel cans.
