How will you celebrate Nuclear Science Week?
It’s the third week of October, and Nuclear Science Week, first recognized in 2009, has arrived! Nuclear Science Week is an annual opportunity to celebrate nuclear science; recognize the professionals who apply it to solving the world’s most pressing problems; encourage nuclear professional development and networking; and share information with students, educators, and community members about the vital role of nuclear science in the lives of all people.

A novel disc tubular reverse osmosis (DTRO) system was designed and applied for the removal of cesium ions from the simulated radioactive wastewater to enhance the concentration factor (CF), which is usually low with a conventional reverse osmosis system (about tenfold volume reduction). In this study, a three-stage structure was proposed to perform the decontamination and concentration separately for the radioactive wastewater treatment at different stages. This novel DTRO system makes it possible to achieve both high retention index (~99%) and CF (over 70) simultaneously. The system was operated at room temperature under ~4 MPa for stages I and II (permeate stages) and 6 to 8 MPa for stage III (concentrate stage). The wastewater processing capacity reached 450 ℓ/h, and only ~6 ℓ/h concentrate was produced. The DTRO system has the potential for application in the treatment of real radioactive wastewater produced in nuclear power plants.
