Carbon (including C-14) Stripping from PHWR moderator spent resins - Can be used in medical sector

Main description

Framatome has developed the first economically feasible way to separate C-14 from ion exchanger resins of the moderator clean-up system in heavy water reactors. With a sufficiently high quality of C-14, the separated isotopes can be proposed to the pharmaceutical industry to be used for isotopic labeling in medical studies and healthcare applications.
