Uranium Seawater Extraction Makes Nuclear Power Completely Renewable
POLL: Would you support an endlessly renewable source of nuclear energy from seawater?

"Nuclear fuel made with uranium extracted from seawater makes nuclear power completely renewable. Itís not just that the 4 billion tons of uranium in seawater now would fuel a thousand 1,000-MW nuclear power plants for 100,000 years. Itís that uranium extracted from seawater is replenished continuously, so nuclear becomes as endless as solar, hydro and wind."

[link to www.forbes.com]

"...this latest technology builds on work by researchers in Japan and uses polyethylene fibers coated with amidoxime to pull in and bind uranium dioxide from seawater..."

"An acid treatment recovers the uranium in the form of a uranyl complex, regenerating the fibers that can be reused many times. The concentrated uranyl complex then can be enriched to become nuclear fuel..."

:amidoxime-fiber:

"Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory exposed this special uranium-sorbing fiber developed at ORNL to Pseudomonas fluorescens and used the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory to create a 3-D X-ray microtomograph to determine microstructure and the effects of interactions with organisms and seawater."

"...testing shows that these new fibers had the capacity to hold 6 grams of uranium per kilogram of adsorbent in only about 50 days in natural seawater...

Re: Uranium Seawater Extraction Makes Nuclear Power Completely Renewable
What utter retards on this forum. It isn't the source of the uranium that is the problem. It is what you do with the fission byproducts AFTER the uranium has been used.

Geez, the IQ around here is going to have to seriously get upgraded.

Renewable energy only applies to supply-side. Just look at Fukashima. Do you want more of that?

Re: Uranium Seawater Extraction Makes Nuclear Power Completely Renewable
These technologies can be refined, and new materials discovered and developed to perform different, but similar functions. An emerging industry of sorts, which could also be potentially applied to various cleanup and abatement method(s). A lot of unknown possibilities.

Curiously, I was thinking of these things while washing my hair in the shower this morning. More specifically, I was thinking of atoms (and molecules) binding to a surface (like a soap lather) and then reclaiming the "stuff." Then, this article shows up on my radar a few hours later, right after a co-worker starts discussing boats and amphibious watercraft... The concepts were all very strangely similar...

He's just showing his ignorance of things like MOX for thermal reactors, and he completely misses the fact that breeder reactors can employ all of the actinides. The efficiency of natural Uranium climbs to 60x, while the Uranium prices also plummet a good bit (a good thing.)

I don't agree fully, especially with the many different styles and method.

True fusion might be ...infeasible, terrestrially, so I'm not expecting breakthroughs there...not just yet.

I've written about other types of energy and reclamation / recycling methods, too, and they all have different uses and applications / possibilities. How about removing things like mercury and other elements from waste water?

Doesn't alter the fact that it is an extremly dangerous energy source that needs to be eradicated.

I assume you americans know that all nuclear reactors do is boil water to make steam? That steam is then piped to steam powered generators which are what actually produces the electricity.

The Disaster spewed it everywhere including intense on the west coast.

Its not renwable, even if they extract it from a disaster you don't keep contaminating the world to extract some from sea weed.

That definition is not a renewable resource.

That and incidents like Fukushima make me wonder how anyone can still be proposing more nuclear power.

AR- much respect, I think you know this

But as happy as I am to see what maybe a possible invention to remove the waste already in our environment, and not just from FUKU, this is not a source for sustainable power generation. Factoring the associated costs with fission, it is easily the most expensive, and lethal, choice currently

IMO, we need to shutter this industry now--all, that is, we can.

One must remember that the removal of these elements and isotopes are but a very very FEW of the other isotopes produced

And of them all, there is tritium--produced at every single reactor on Earth-- and leaking into the environment of every single reactor as well

How does one separate two neutrons from one sample of h3 into h1

How does one separate water from water?

Nothing will known to man Nothing limits it's creep from containment except gold. There is no solution to this meanwhile it's production continues 24/7/365 poisoning us and our environment

Just look at Indian Point, my friend.
