Title: Milestone Report - Data Requirements and Test System Needs for Development of an Integrated Off-Gas Treatment System

Abstract

In fiscal year 2016 an Engineering Evaluation of an integrated off-gas system was conducted. This study resulted in a report entitled Engineering Evaluation of an Integrated Off-Gas Treatment System for Used Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Facilities (Jubin et al. 2016a), from here referred to as the “Engineering Evaluation.” This study focused on the capture and retention of the volatile radionuclides ( 3H, 14C, 85Kr, and 129I), selected semi-volatile radionuclides, specifically 106Ru, and chemical species like NO and NO 2 generated during the dissolution of the used nuclear fuel. The study examined the design of the combined head-end off-gas streams and the vessel off-gas stream. The study drew upon the available literature to conduct the equipment sizing and sorbent usage. A number of assumptions were required to complete this analysis and major gaps in the available data were identified that, if resolved, could increase the fidelity of the engineering design.
