Title: Water-soluble chelating polymers for removal of actinides from watewater

Abstract

Polymer filtration is a technology being developed to recover valuable or regulated metal ions selectively from process or wastewaters. Water-soluble chelating polymers are specially designed to bind selectively with metal ions in aqueous solutions. The polymers molecular weight is large enough so they can be separated and concentrated using available ultrafiltration technology. Water and smaller unbound components of the solution pass freely through the ultrafiltration membrane. The polymers can then be reused by changing the solution conditions to release the metal ions, which are recovered in concentrated form, for recycle or disposal.
