H2020: technical partners to develop a waste-less separation technology for processing uranium mines waste
Summary:
A Dutch-led consortium is preparing a proposal for the Horizon 2020 call: SC5-13-2016-2017. The project is dedicated to develop an eco-friendly, highly efficient and waste-less separation technology for processing uranium mines waste. The consortium is especially looking for companies which have experience in utilising the waste of uranium mines or are producing separation equipment for separating radioactive materials.
Description:
The Dutch-led international consortium of specialists from 5 European countries intends to develop the world´s first uranium dump utilization technology for highly precise waste-less separation of rock-mass into construction material and uranium concentrate. Waste separation is facilitated by developing unique radiation-magnetic separator systems.

The project scope includes:
· Laboratory and industrial research;
· Research, modelling, development and production of prototypes;
· Testing and demonstration of experimental radiation-magnetic separators;
· Field testing of the new prototypes to confirm achieved technological parameters and prepare their industrial production.

To this day over 20 million tons of uranium waste has been accumulated only in European countries such as Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine. In Ukraine alone there are about 8 million tons of such wastes stored in dumps.
These radioactive dumps and the surrounding sanitary zones occupy considerable area of Europe in excess of more than 100 square kilometre and cause serious ecological problems by producing radioactive dust and radon gas.

This eco-friendly technology will not only start the environmental rehabilitation of large areas of Europe, it will also be a significant step towards implementing waste-less mining of uranium and other radioactive materials.

The positive results of the feasibility study have shown that project targets are realistic and achievable.

The consortium includes European SME companies that are recognized specialists in the following areas: radioactive measurements, magnetic systems, separating technique, mining of radioactive materials and radioactive safety of uranium mines.

The consortium is looking especially for companies, which have experience in:
- utilising the waste of uranium mines;
- producing separation equipment for separating radioactive materials.
Furthermore the consortium also invites all other interested companies and specialists to participate in the proposed project.

Funding programme: Horizon 2020 call: SC5-13-2016-2017
Deadline for the call: 7 March 2017
Deadline for the EoI: 1 March 2017
Anticipated duration: The project is planned to be realized within 3 years.

In case it is not possible to realize a qualitative good consortium in time before the deadline, other options will be sought to submit a proposal in other programmes ( such as H2020 SC5-14-2016-2017: Raw materials Innovation actions, LIFE, Eurostars, .... ).
Advantages and Innovations:
There is currently no comparable technology being used anywhere in the world. The uranium waste will be separated into construction material and uranium concentrate.

Extracted construction material of the third radioactivity class (activity less than 1200 Becquerel per kilogram) can be used for filling waste sand careers, erosional ravines, waste blocks of mines, et cetera.

Extracted uranium concentrate can be used for producing elemental uranium by hydro-metallurgical technology.

In order to achieve the above:
· New precision radioactivity sensors will be created, allowing to reach a minimum accuracy of 97%. Such sensors also can be used for waste-less uranium mining.
· Precision magnetic field sensors will be used for magnetic separation of materials with weak magnetic properties. This will significantly increase the effectiveness of all types of magnetic separation in various industries.
· Unique, radiation-magnetic separation systems will be created to improve the efficiency, productivity and environmental safety of all types of radioactive material production.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
Type of partners: Industry / research Role of partners: The consortium is looking especially for companies, which have experience in: - utilising the waste of uranium mines; - producing separation equipment for separating radioactive materials. The missing part of the consortium is desired to focus on the engineering and production tasks and activities of the whole separation line, inclusive the mechanical transport system. Also companies interested in utilising the waste, that means companies interested in the material that can used as building material and companies interested in the uranium concentrate, are welcome to join the project. The expertise for the subsystems radioactive measurements, the magnetic systems to be used and the method for separation is already available. Furthermore the consortium also invites all other interested companies and specialists to participate in the proposed project.
