6 in 1993, giving us a grim glimpse of our own future if we continue to ignore the warnings of the health effects of low-level radiation from the ingestion of nuclear fission products
In this individual, MII cells were biased towards the presence of the inverted chromosome 4 with the fission products
of chromosome 1.
Converters and breeders each offer advantages, and the main point of difference between the two is whether fission products
are actively processed out of the salt during operation.
Development of Glass Compositions to Immobilize Alkali, Alkaline Earth, Lanthanide and Transition Metal Fission Products
from Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing
Among the applications to be explored will be the use of ADS facilities to transmute nuclear waste, specifically, long-lived fission products
and minor actinide (MA) materials generated during the operation of nuclear power reactors, and the development of robust techniques for on-line monitoring of ADS facilities.
Cesium-137 ranks among the most problematic of the short-to-medium-life fission products
Research has suggested that mixing thorium and plutonium as a fuel can destroy many of the radioactive fission products
that make plutonium waste so nasty.
The first measurements in Tokyo showed no indication of iodine 131 or cesium 137 which are fission products
from the fuel, The Herald Sun quoted Andrew saying.
many neutron-absorbing fission products
and become too depleted in
High-temperature (500 [degrees] C to 2000 [degrees] C) experimental studies, as well as thermodynamic calculations, are being carried out to evaluate release of iodine and other fission products
(Cs, Ru, Te, etc.
Chernousenko's treatment was reminiscent of that accorded to the Soviet Union's greatest scientist, Andrei Sakharov, who was also punished for revealing the lethal effects on the immune system of ingesting food or water containing man-made nuclear fission products
One concern that has been raised about the possible reentry of satellite nuclear materials is that of contamination by more toxic fission products
such as strontium-90 or cesium-137.
In these highly unlikely events, computer codes are used to model a wide range of associated phenomena thermal-hydraulics, heating, hydrogen generation and combustion, reactor vessel failure, core melting, molten coreconcrete interactions, containment performance, and fission products
The Russian uranium enrichment enterprise Angarsk Electrolysis Chemical Combine (AECC) admitted at a public hearing in early December that radioactive waste containing uranium, transuranic elements, and uranium fission products
are in storage at its "Site 310.
However it would also create a lot of new and extremely radioactive fission products
, both from the plutonium and the uranium in the fuel.
