Title: Modernization at the Y-12 National Security Complex: A Case for Additional Experimental Benchmarks

Abstract

Electrorefining (ER) is a major part of efforts at the Y-12 National Security Complex to revolutionize the reprocessing and purification of enriched uranium (EU). Successful implementation of ER could drastically reduce the operational costs and footprint, hazardous materials use, and waste generation.
