Abstract:
One of the legacies of the UK’s military nuclear programme has been the generation of inventories of radioactively contaminated soils as a result of historical practices, leakages and spillages. Electrokinetic (EK) Remediation has long been considered a potential technology for remediation of soils with low hydraulic conductivity. This thesis examines the development of EK as a potential treatment technology for actinide contaminated soils and wastes, using waste soils from the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) PLC Aldermaston site (Berkshire, UK) as a test medium.
