Description: An important problem in the nuclear power industry is associated with the separation of two radioactive components of spent nuclear fuel. These components are characterised as long-lived minor actinide (Np, Am, Cm) and short-lived lanthanide species, respectively. These components can be managed and utilised in very different ways and their efficient separation therefore has important environmental and economic benefits.
