Siberian scientists developed innovational way of preparing nuclear wastes for dumping
One of main problems during wastes dumping is the presence of hardly solvable remainders in a pulp (mixture of solid particles and liquid) which one should remove. To solve this issue, the experts from SFU have suggested to apply cavitation which is the process when bubbles of vacuum are formed and then collapsed inside the liquid. Herewith, the impact of bubbles destroy even firm materials For instance, the cavitation leads to amortization of screw-propellers of ships.
The approach created by SFU scientists allows for destroying tight insolvable in water materials which are deposited on the bottom of reservoir with irradiated nuclear fuel.
